The Southwest part of Arkansas offers anglers a smorgasbord of great fishing opportunities for trout, smallmouth bass, white bass, and the incredible fighting white and stripper bass hybrid, and more. This area sports many large flowages and great rivers to paddle and fish. If you love to fly fish, use your spinning rig, or other traditional rigs, the little Missouri River will not disappoint with it's abundance of rainbow, and brown trout. If you love to fish for bass, crappie, walleye and more, then fishing the flowages and rivers, in our great sit on top kayaks can't be beat. This is a great trip that all anglers and kayakers will enjoy. We will be bringing Perception Tribe sit on top kayaks, that we use in our fleet of boats at our resort and is our favorite choice of the many different sit on tops that we have. They are very stable, easy to get in and out of, comfortable, easy to maneuver, paddle, and are great to fish from. Sit on top kayaks have become very popular in the fishing world and this is a great opportunity to try it out. We have rented a building with four great single bedroom condominiums with a deck in the center, making it ideal for a group. It is just above the dam that makes the Greason Flowage with incredible trout fishing on the Little Missouri River where it flows out of the dam just a short distance away.
