Collins Creek

Collins Creek Waterfall at Heber Springs

Collins Creek is a project like no other in Arkansas fisheries. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers teamed up to turn an intermittent stream into a year-round trout fishery. The creek, which is within JFK Park below Greers Ferry Dam, flows into the Little Red River. A buried line brings approximately 40,000 gallons of 50-degree water to the creek every hour. Brook and rainbow trout have reproduced naturally in the creek; it is not stocked. Only youths under age 16 may fish on Collins Creek from its source to the wooden vehicle bridge in JFK Park.
