A BIT ABOUT ME
I've been trout fishing the Little Red River for over 35 years. In 2010 I decided to become a part-time trout guide It's more of a hobby than a job. Guiding gives me the opportunity to be on the river and help others catch fish. I accommodate first timers to the pro's.

The Little Red River
The Little Red River's,\ icy cold water emerges from beneath the dam at Greers Ferry Lake and creates a premier-class trout stream for Rainbow, Brown and Brook trout. Trout were introduced to the Little Red River in 1966, some three years after the completion of the lake project. Rainbows, Browns and Cutthroats are caught for some 30-river miles below the dam. Howard "Rip" Collins caught a 40-pound, four-ounce world record brown on the river in 1992...a mark that stood until 2009. The Little Red offers 30 miles of ideal trout habitat below Greers Ferry Dam near Heber Springs, Arkansas. Brown trout running 5 to 8 pounds are common, and a 20- to 30-pounder is always possible. The Brown trout spawning run occurs from October through December, making these especially good times to fish. This popular Ozark Mountain tail-water trout stream is beautiful in its own special way, running clear and cold, skirted by scenic hillsides alive with wildlife – otters, raccoons, deer, ducks, blue herion and eagles.
Stocked Rainbow trout provide the bulk of the Little Red River’s fish population. These are hatchery fish raised on a diet of commercial trout food. Trout love Power Bait, whole-kernel corn, night crawlers, cheese and artificial lures. There are wild fish, too – big Brown trout, sleek and magnificent, that spawn on tumbling river shoals each fall. The trout fishing stretch of the Little Red River is 30 river miles from the dam to Pangburn. But the Little Red is anything but little in the hearts of trout fishermen who flock to the river in search of big fish. Every time you fish these waters is another opportunity to try and top a world-record Brown trout. Full service marinas and resorts are available along the upper sections of the river. Both public and resort launch areas are conveniently located on both sides of the river. Attractions in the area include the William Carl Garner/Corps of Engineers Visitor Center, hiking trails overlooking the river, trout hatchery; plus boating, fishing, and resorts around the river and Greers Gerry Lake.
