Review

"Keith Sutton's skills as a wordsmith and storyteller warm each selection. . . . [H]is individual literary voice makes for fun, informative, and sometimes touching reading."—Cliff Shelby, Outdoor Communications

From the Inside Flap

Fishing Arkansas is a comprehensive guide to the angling opportunites that the Natural State offiers to its 500,000–700,000 licensed fisherman as well as to visitors to the state. In addition to conveying the very drama and excitement of the fishing experience itself, the month-by-month organziation of the book allows the reader a detailed look at the life histories of many Arkansas sport fish, the best lakes and streams in which to find them, and the most successful tactics and tackle to use. Enhanced by Sutton's excellent photographs, the guide includes twelve sections on popular game fish, such as largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, catfish, bluegill, and trout. It also provides an introduction to often-overlooked species like bowfin, gar, carp, paddlefish, and pickerel. Hundreds of valuable fishing tips gleaned from decades of on-the-water experience and interviews with dozens of guides, biologists, and expert anglers enhance the engaging narraive. From the glistening trout in the cold tailwaters of the White River, to feisty catfish on the muddy bayou bottoms of the Delta region, Keith Sutton has served up a tempting array of the fish that can be sought and caught on hook and line in the teeming waters of Arkansas.

Fishing Arkansas: A Year-round Guide To Angling Adventures In The Natural State is a comprehensive, user friendly guide to the manifold opportunities that Arkansas has to offer licensed fishermen and state travelers in search of a good place to drop their line. The month-by-month organization of the text allows the reader a detailed examination of the life histories of many Arkansas sport fish, the best lakes and streams, and the most successful tactics and tackle to use at any given time of the year. Enhanced with color photography, this superb guide includes twelve sections on popular game fish (including large and small mouth bass, crappie, catfish, bluegill, and trout); provides an introduction to often-overlooked species (bowfin, gar, carp, paddlefish, pickerel); offers hundreds of fishing tips gleaned from decades of on-the-water experience by dozens of guides, biologists, and expert anglers. If you are a fisherman living in, or just passing through, Arkansas, plan for your next angling venture by reading Keith Sutton's Fishing Arkansas!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steve Taylor on February 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
Keith Sutton, editor of Arkansas Wildlife magazine and award-winning photographer and outdoors writer, has put together another great fishing book with a simple, effective structure. The chapters lead you through the months of the year, with multiple pieces in each chapter that suggest specific species to catch that time of year and where you'll find them in the Natural State. Along the way, you'll pick up tidbits on under-publicized species (carp, drum, and gar, for example) and tips from Sutton's own experience and his network of friends and fisheries professionals who've fished the lakes and rivers mentioned from every angle. The writing is straightforward and takes on a conversational tone that makes you imagine a comfortable old friend is giving you some mighty fine fishing advice.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really an excellent book, well written, fine photos, five stars. Essentially a collection of 50 articles, each about catching different species on different rivers and lakes in Arkansas, but so well written you don't need to live in Arkansas to enjoy it. Author describes some unusual fish and how to catch them, e.g., bowfin, padlefish, skipjack, gars, et al.
