Illinois, Arkansas, US
4) Hwy 16 to Arkansas 59 Near Siloam Springs (5.1 miles) (Fisher Ford)
||I-II (for normal flows)
Nice slow class I float with an occasional Class II riffle. Many places to access although it
flows through private land for much of the way.
Do not confuse the takeout with Oklahoma Hwy 59 as it will make the trip much much longer through
the remnants of Lake Francis!
About halfway, the creek crosses under Fisher Ford Road and drops over a bedrock shoal known as
'Fisher Ford'. This is a nice class II playspot that offers something to surf at most flows, even
in the summer.
Beware of the landowners on river right as the land is posted and some altercations have
Park on the South (river left) side of the river for park and play access.
Can be combined with upstream
sections for longer trips.
