We usually hang out around goat island if you go west from devils fork campground past hill creek the lake gets narrow and is protected by hills so you can usually find some glass water. We go back in the channel pretty far when the lake is up and you're usually safe til Sept and then the lake starts getting low. Stay in the middle and don't go past 263 bridge until someone shows you the area or take it slow and watch the depth but the water is pretty murky back that far. I haven't been up this year so I don't know what the level is but it's usually really high this time of year. Someone usually sets up a course around Heber Springs Park/Sandy Beach near the dike behind the marina but that's the only course I know of on the lake but that is the other side of the lake from where most of us hang out and finding glass is pretty difficult over there except for early morning or after dinner. With a 190 I assume you're mostly a skier or footer.
Oh nice man! Thanks for all the pointers. Oddly enough I do more wakeboarding with my 190 then anything! It's not the biggest wake but I have a lot of fun with it and it was the best deal I could talk my wife into =). Well if this weather warms up again I'll let you know when we'll be up there again if you wanted to take your boat out early! I'm only in Arkansas till May so I'm trying to live it up before we head back to California.
