Rated as one of Arkansas’ best float streams, the scenic Spring River is fed by the icy waters of the Mammoth Spring, just a few miles north of Hardy. The river’s white water shoals and rushing falls challenge the canoeist’s skills while the constant water flow from the spring makes it a good canoeing, kayaking, and rafting stream year-round. The South fork of the river is a mild, beautiful warm water stream with excellent scenery ideal for a leisurely float trip. The Spring River’s cold waters make it one of the top spots for rainbow trout in Arkansas. Fly-fishing is a popular sport year-round as anglers go after trophy fish. In the warmer stretches of the river, champion Bass, Walleye, and the occasional Tiger Muskie reward the wily fishermen. Everything you need for an exciting river adventure is available from local suppliers, including canoe and Kayak rentals, guided fishing and hunting trips, rods, reels, fly fishing tackle and accessories, clothing and Arkansas fishing licenses.
