Canoeing the Western End of Lake Winona, Alum Fork of the Saline River
  Lake Winona is located in the southwestern Ouachita National Forest Forest. Its main feeder stream is the Alum Fork of the Saline River. It is a beautiful lake surrounded by modest sized mountains. Due to its recreational limitations it is not utilized by many. At 5:30 Saturday morning I dragged my canoe into its calm waters and paddled up to the far western end and back. A few small fish were hooked and released. Some were eaten raw. The wind was minimal and the heat was not terrible. A lone coyote was observed licking itself on a sand bar. The total trip was 3 miles.
