Thank you to all veterans
#VisitArkansas

May 25th is Memorial Day. Our Nation pauses to remember those brave men and women, both past and present, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Nations freedom. While some will confuse this day with giving thanks to our Veterans, Memorial Day is strictly for those who gave their lives to protect our Nation. We do not celebrate this day. Instead, we reflect deeply on the courage, faithfulness, and dedication to duty it must take to lay your life down for your country. God bless the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and God bless America

These are golden rainbow trout being stocked at Norfork as part of a rainbow trout stocking along the White River below Bull Shoals. About 5% of the stocking (10,000 total rainbows were golden rainbows, a color variation of rainbow trout. These trout came from a commercial hatchery in Ava, Missouri. About 2,000 rainbows went in at the Norfork west access ramp, at the confluence of the White and the North Fork of the White.

That’s Christy Graham, AGFC trout program coordinator, and AGFC photographer Mike Wintroath.
