    Calling all Arkansans to a gathering at Merrisach Park May 3-6 for a catfishing adventure that will be fun for the hard core fisherman or the entire family. The park is large with new renovations, showers, RV hook-ups and a boat ramp above WDM dam (#2) on the AR River. A boat ramp on White River is near by and is a 10 mile boat ride to Montgomery Point on Miss River. The fishing is excellent in May and shad/skips should be plentiful. We have had many gatherings at this site in the past with great success and many fond memories. Spread the word and let’s set some PB’s while having a great time! There is also a large shelter we can rent for a fish fry that will accommodate 50 plus people.
    Hope to see you there-

    Will do! There are several others that I expect will be there too; they don’t frequent this site much anymore. Ray and Glenda McFarland, Jamie Bardsley, Steve Black and his buddy Kenny. We have a good time. Jamie caught an 87 there the last time we got together-

    Will do Sam. They bought an acre of property down the road from our lodge by Merrisach a few months back. They are on the way to being all set up now after some major set backs with the original structure (long story for them to tell) but I’m sure they will be fishing hard as soon as the temps warm up a little. We hope you and your gang can make it down and catch up with everyone. If we don’t have a turn out big enough to rent the shelter at the campground, we will definitely have a small size fish fry one night at either our place or theirs. You are right about the water level, but the time we have planned is usually dependable for fishing. Good to hear from you again!
