Backwaters action

Photographer Andy Crawford just checked in from a backwater area in Greenleaf Creek, located in Webbers Falls Lake on the Arkansas River.

After being on the water since 6 a.m., Andy said most of the action he's seen — including this 4-pounder caught by Tony Dumitras — is in the backwaters. 

"Everyone we've seen in the backwaters is catching fish," he said. Not so on the main river, where Andy said boats were few and far between.

That fuels evidence of a strong shallow water in play this week. Stay tuned.
