Lack of current may affect conditions

Here's a quick update on fishing conditions on Pool 9 of the Arkansas River: It's a few degrees warmer than yesterday's practice, but the river appears to be about a foot lower, and there's not quite as much current. There's still a noticeable flow, but it appears the hydropower plant at the dam isn't cranking as many units as it was during practice. I'm not sure the current will have as much effect as the lower pool level, which could take some small backwater areas out of play.
