Area Description/Facilities: Impounded in 1970, Webbers Falls is the uppermost pool on the Arkansas River designated for navigation.  The Arkansas, Verdigris, and Grand (Neosho) Rivers all meet at the headwaters of Webbers at an area called Three Forks and can produce significant flows during periods of floods.  Water levels are generally stable for navigation (barge traffic) purposes, so floating and emergent vegetation can be found on most shorelines.  Webbers Falls is located within the Arkansas river valley which is characterized by low gradients and substantial bottomlands.  

Physical Description: 10,900 surface acres, 232 miles of shoreline, Avg depth 15ft

Species of Interest: Primary species of interest are Blue Catfish, Flathead Catfish, Largemouth Bass, and White and Black Crappie.  Other species available include White Bass, Striped Bass, Paddlefish, and Sauger.

Management Practices: Sauger and Walleye are subject to a 16" minimum to protect Sauger broodstock.
