The Saline River is a 202-mile-long tributary of the Ouachita River in the south central portion of the U.S. state of Arkansas and is comprised of three major divisions--Middle, Alum and North Forks—which merge above Benton.  Below this point the river flattens out to begin its long journey through Grant, Cleveland, Bradley and Ashley counties to its confluence with the Ouachita River in the heart of Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge.  It is the last major undammed stream in the entire Ouachita Mountain drainage, offering excellent fishing, scenery and backcountry floating.

Try worms, Tennessee shad colored jigs, cherry seed colored lizards, night crawlers and chicken livers out on this water.
