Lou Gabric, owner of Hummingbird Hideaway Resort on Norfork Lake, displays two of the five stripers he hooked late Sunday morning on the lake, keeping three. He says the on-again, off-again striper bite has not been typical of the lake this year. He found these stripers just 5-20 feet down in 100-plus feet of water. "I do spend quite a bite of time looking around for striped bass, but when you find them you will have a blast," he says.

Cold temps and high water aren't keeping all the anglers off water; trout is there to be caught on the Spring River, but bundle up. Bill Fidler of Memphis did just that as he caught a Spring River trout. Photo provided by Mark Crawford.

Mallard numbers estimated in the midwinter aerial survey by AGFC waterfowl biologists were about half the total number of ducks counted, nearly 700,000. That 50% figure of total ducks is down from the typical average of 70% in the midwinter count in Arkansas.
