    Well, the flow is dropping pretty fast. Monday says 80, 000 At Dardanelle.
    Will be fishing in the next few days for sure. Just gotta get square at work and settle on a date.

    Dropping, but still high. My chart shows 95k today at Dardanelle; 105k here at Murray. I crossed over the river between 4:00 and 4:30 today, and not only were the dikes under water, but only the very tops of the trees on the dikes were above water. Small craft advisories are issued whenever the flow reaches 70k.

    I got the itch late yesterday evening so I hit clear creek, but couldnt find any shad, Very unusual for this place. So I run on out to the river an she was runnin pretty good. I stayed off of it, settled at the mouth of clear creek and the river, had skipjack with me, caught one blue about 5 pounds. had a few good pull downs but didnt get to them in time. Even where I was at there was strong current and trash rollin down the river.
