Be on the lookout for alligator gar spawning this coming week. With the high water we have in Arkansas right now and foreseeable future the conditions across their range are almost perfect for big gar love! They'll be up tributaries off main river channels, sometimes a mile or more. They prefer tall (2'to3') grass and clear water and will likely be going at it hot and heavy in the late afternoon when the water is the warmest. We all ready have smaller ones (50 to 100lbs) most likely males cruising around in the spawning waters I keep up with near toadsuck! Please report any sighting of AG spawning to AGFC or NFW or post them here and I'll let the appropriate people know. Thank you.
