Can’t you just feel that cold water on your toes? Let’s go wading in Little Red River!

Little Red River, emerging icy cold from beneath massive dam at Greers Ferry Lake is a premier-class trout stream. Trout were introduced to the Little Red in 1966, some three years after the completion of the lake project. Rainbows, browns and cutthroats are caught for some 35-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 29 miles of ideal trout habitat below Greers Ferry Dam at Heber Springs, Arkansas. Brown trout running 5 to 8 pounds are common, and a 20- to 30-pounder is always possible in the river that produced the 40-pound, 4-ounce world record.

The brown trout spawning run occurs from mid-October through November, making these especially good times to fish. This popular Ozark Mountain tailwater trout stream is beautiful in its own special way, running clear and cold, skirted by scenic hardwood hillsides alive with wildlife – otters, raccoons, deer, ducks, songbirds and eagles.
