To my knowledge as long as you're not on anyone's property and not on the Arkansas side. You can hunt any sand bar or island you come across.

Book mark the above link. They are good about having on line resources as well as WMA maps, rules and regs.

Couple of key points when hunting the river;
1) always have a healthy dose of fear and respect for the river. Once you lose that, you won't be far behind!
2) Rising river means copious amounts of debris. Big stuff like entire trees, not your usual plastic bottles and crap.
3) There are many wing damns on the river. Know where they are in your area.
4) On your first several trips out hunting in a new area, go out at first light.

I know this was not what you are looking for but just thought I'd share. If you need anything specific PM me and I'll share what I can. Most of the river is open to hunting as well as Missourri and Arkansas. Just know the rules.

When hunting public rivers (and other public waters with varying water levels) it's very important to know where the "river" stops and private property begins. Just because you can access it from the river doesn't mean its public. USGS topo maps are very useful in determining this. Google Earth Pro (have to purchase the license) also has property lines for most areas if you zoom in far enough. The license is about $300 but could save you a trespassing ticket.
If guns kill people, how does anyone make it out of a gun show alive?
