    Looking at fishing the Arkansas River up near Harvey County West park. Anyone ever fished the Ark up around that area? Planning on using some bullhead this weekend there.

    Never fished there before. Looks like there is a low water dam just north of NW 24th St. Thats where I would be.:wink:
    Good luck!

    Yes there is a dam, I was just there this morning scoping it out. Should I be on the bottom side of the low water dam?

    I fish low water dams on the Neosho and fish up close to the dam where the rough water is.There should be an eddy or slack water area where current comes back toward dam,thats where the fish are.:smile2:
