LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -  The Army Corps of Engineers issued a small craft advisory for the Arkansas River.  High flows are the result of relatively large releases from Oklahoma reservoirs and about six inches of rain in the Oklahoma basin.  During high flows, strong currents and large debris can threaten the safety of pleasure craft.

Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 cubic feet per second.  Flows at Trimble Lock and Dam at Fort Smith on Saturday will be about 71,000 cubic feet per second.  Flows at Dardanelle Lock and Dam at Russellville on Sunday will be about 72,000 c.f.s.  Flows at Murray Lock and Dam at Little Rock on Monday will be about 73,000 c.f.s.  Flows at Emmett Sanders Lock and Dam at Pine Bluff on Tuesday will be about 71,000 c.f.s.  Flows at Mills Dam at Arkansas Post on Tuesday will be about 74,000 c.f.s.

Daily river information can be obtained at or the Corps’ mobile App which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
