Last week Miss Funfinder, GPS Linda, Lady dog, myself and friends drifted over to the neighboring state of Arkasas to the town of Heber Springs to do some serious trout fishing. Now, you folks from other areas don't think of Arkasas or the midwest as trout country, but trout country it is. You see, when the government takes too much of your money... which is all the time, they like to find little things to do like damn every river in the country. This creates lots of jobs and keeps everyone busy for awhile drowning towns, trees and totally screwing up the natural enviornment. Since damning the Little Red River totally wiped out all native fish and fisheries this was great because it created perpetual jobs at the fish hatcheries raising "natural" fish imported from places like California... fortunately, in this case Northern California where I once lived and famous McCloud River Rainbows and Brown Trout; Trout are all that can survive below the damn on the little red river since the damn changes the water temperature of the river below the damn from it's natural warm water fishery to a very cold water fishery... which trout love, due to the darn damn releasing water from the mid or lower level of the dam cold water (can I say that?)... a chilly 40 to 50 degrees. Perfect trout water! And it keep folks at the hatcheries employed, plus all the county commissioners relatives who just happen to purchace most the the land below the damn just before it was built. Funny how that happened.
Anyway, we had a nice leisurely 4.5 hour cruise over from the cabin on Lake Keystone where Miss Funfinder, our bumper pull travel trailer lives, to Heber Springs, Arkansas. Great day, warm weather and not a cloud in the Sky and way beautiful country. Rolling Hills dotted with 2 lane country highways overshadowed by mixed Pine Trees and Oaks. Heart of the Ozarks.

We found fellow Tulsa Fly Fishers Jon and Linda doing some fly fishing also over at Lindsey's Rainbow Resort on the the Little Red River; a place I hightly recommend. Jon and Linda are long time Good Old RVers and have a wonderful 1990 Class A diesel that gets them over 900 miles of range on their 90 gallon tank. Princess the cat oversees things when Jon and Linda are fishing.

While the "fishing" was great, the catchin was a might poorly due to the darn dam's generators running all 3 generators as fast as the damn things could run... putting the river into the trees. so, we fished anyway... with no luck. We did see some fat and healthy rainbow and some wild brown trout taken fron the dock at Lindseys'. Note, everyone on the little Red River has a dock.

Ok, so here's some pictures.
