Crooked Creek Smallmouth Bass Fishing

My brothers and I went for a trip during the summer of 2016 to fish Crooked Creek, Arkansas. The small mouth in this creek are native to Arkansas and we enjoyed catching them. We stayed at the White River Campgrounds just up from the access we fished for a couple of nights. Due to the higher water we were limited on where we could go, despite the high water we still caught some smallies. Drop a like and subscribe.
