Greers Ferry Dam near Heber Springs, Arkansas
If you want big browns Greers Ferry Dam is the place to go, the state record (40lbs 4oz) was caught here and trout bigger than that are seen spawning almost every year. Many of the local anglers don't fish for them during the spawn though so they can pass on their great genes to future generations. Fishing can be a bit of a challenge though because the river is filled with coontail moss. A good way to get a trout on the fly though is to perfect the dead-drift techniques that imitates the natural movement of sow bugs. Wading access is limited and the water rises fast so most anglers fish from rafts or drift boats.
