Irons Fork Lake was built by the Soil Conservation Service for flood control and is a water supply lake for the city of Mena. The AGFC assumed fisheries management responsibility for the lake in 1979.
Irons Fork was accidentally drained in 1988 and later restocked by the AGFC with bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, catfish and crappie. The misfourtune turned out to be a large benefit for the sport fish population and anglers, because the low water also enabled the AGFC to place large tree shelters and fish attractors on the lakebed before it was refilled.
