Drove the 6.5 hours from St Louis to west-central Arkansas to fish with a buddy. He'd previously scoped out the location, and the plan was to get me my first Striped Bass on fly, and hopefully get both of us our first Blue Catfish on fly. Goals were achieved, despite the cool wet weather and the water being more muddied up than usual.I didn't catch big numbers of fish, but they were strong fighters. I caught 5 Freshwater Drum, 4 Striped Bass, (3 French Hens), 2 Blue Catfish, 1 White Bass, 1 Largemouth Bass.
