The creek is high and was somewhat muddy after the hard rain yesterday. Without any additional hard rain it should be cleared up and the fishing should be good. :thumb:does anyone know what the sylamore creek looks like is the water up or normal?? plannin a trip up there next weekend so just curious,
It also restocks some smaller streams and lakes.:thumb: Fish usually spawn with greater success in high water.How does a flood improve fishing? Basically it improves the supply of groceries for just every critter and fish that lives in the creek. It is a somewhat long term effect when food sources are more plentiful for 3-4 years after a good flood or two.
I went by the boat ramp at Allison, Sunday and the ramp that allowed a boat access to the creek is washed out. The ramp into the river seems to still be in good shape but the water is rather swift and a fellow has to be careful there. The creek has a beautiful blue color to it but the river is still somewhat muddy looking. :thumb:
Sounds like you had a good trip. Were you fishing out of a boat or wading? Any big sm?well went up this weekend and caught about 80 fish all weekend, mostly rockbass, but did catch prolly 20 good smallmouth, even caught some trout.
Sylamore creek is five miles north of Mountain View, AR in Stone County. There is a south and north branch of Sylamore Creek. On South Sylamore Creek you can wade or use a small boat if you want to move a little faster. North Sylamore Creek is much more shallow and at normal water levels it is 99% wade fishing. Both creeks are excellent fishing for Rock Bass and Smallmouth Bass, sometimes a trout in the early spring while the water is cool. Also right around the intersection of Sylamore Creek and the White River is some fair Black Bass fishing.Where is Sylamore creek? Do have to have a boat fish it?
