About Little Missouri river
This is NOT a river for novice paddlers - intermediate to advanced whitewater skills and the ability to self-rescue are necessary, as is having the proper boat, gear and clothing. Large standing waves and turbulent water make spray skirts advisable for canoes and kayaks.
The Little Mo is an excellent fishing stream for rainbow trout (December through May), green sunfish, longear, smallmouth and spotted bass, white bass (during the spring spawning season) and other species. It is generally best to wade or fish from the banks using light spinning tackle and fly fishing gear. Be sure that you have a valid tax stamp if fishing for trout - Arkansas does check and will ticket you for violations!
Abundant campsites are available along the river on Weyerhaeuser Company lands. Plan to take your own boats and gear, as well as providing for your own shuttles.
