A photographer from Paragould managed to get this trout fishing shot from Norfork River the weekend before last using his phone. He says he'd forgotten his camera, so with no time available to run back and grab the camera, his phone had to fill in; otherwise the fish, and the gorgeous scene you see, would have been long gone. We appreciate the submission from Rodney White.

Megan Gray managed to land a beautiful brook trout approaching the 5-pound state-record mark from the Little Red River in Central Arkansas.

This couple found the largemouth bass biting very well this past weekend at Lake Charles in northeast Arkansas. Most other species there were fair, but the black bass have turned on in the water as it drops below 70 degrees in Lake Charles State Park.
