Keep an eye out for special bins placed along the Little Red River at boat ramps, access points and popular boat docks this year. The Little Red River Foundation and Arkansas Game and Fish Commission have kicked off a program to capture and recycle used fishing line on and around the river. Local students, LRRF members and AGFC officials will place recapture bins at all approved sites in the next few weeks. Members of the LRRF will gather the used fishing line on a regular basis and send it to monofilament line manufacturer Berkeley for recycling.
“The used line recapture and recycle project is our newly formed Foundation’s first public effort to protect and preserve the river.  We are excited to work with the AGFC and Corps of Engineers on it,” said Foundation Chair Allen Gordon. “Keeping fish, birds and other wildlife from getting entangled in discarded line is one of a number of initiatives the LRRF will take on.”
