VACATION AT THE WHITE RIVER

Whether you are a beginner looking to bag your limit of Rainbow Trout, or a veteran trying to hunt down a trophy Brown, the White River will satisfy the longings of any angler. The water released from the hydroelectric dam below Bull Shoals, combined with the conservation and stocking efforts of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, has created ultimate grounds for Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brown Trout. This 92-mile stretch of Bull Shoals tail-water is consistently one of America’s most productive fisheries in terms of trout number and size. The White River runs for 722 miles through both Arkansas and Missouri and is fed by the Boston Mountains. This body of water is no exception, and also has award-winning fishing and a plethora of water activities. White River trout fishing is one of the most popular activities on the river.

You can master the art of fly-fishing, enjoy the relaxation of float fishing from a flat-bottom johnboat, or simply take in some of the Natural State’s most incredible natural scenery. From beautiful riverside resorts to rustic lodges to campgrounds and boat docks, the White River has everything to get you hooked on the Mountain Home area. (see more)

VACATION AT LAKE NORFORK

Only minutes from Mountain Home, the state’s oldest manmade lake, Lake Norfork, is the perfect choice for both fishermen and vacationers. The waters of both lakes are uncharacteristically clear. Norfork Lake has over 550 miles of shoreline with 22,000 acres of surface water and 20 developed parks. Spend an afternoon in one of the many swimming areas, or take a boat out to enjoy all sorts of water sports – including world class bass fishing, sailing, scuba diving, skiing, tubing, wakeboarding and more. Bass fishing Norfork Lake is among the most popular. If fishing is what you are looking for, Norfork is known for its Black Bass and Ocean Stripers. Tuck yourself back in a cove and lose a few hours reeling in your next big catch. The Norfork National Fish Hatchery is just west of the Norfork Lake Dam and is found on Dry Run Creek, feeding into the Norfork Tail.

Many visitors find themselves spending a few days on this pristine lake, and there are plenty of options for lodging ranging from a campsite a few steps away to cabins, bed-and-breakfasts or lakeside resorts.

VACATION AT THE BUFFALO NATIONAL RIVER

Vacationers and residents love the excitement of rafting on this river as much as a lazy float. Fly fishers enjoy fishing on the only national river that runs 150 miles through protected public land that spreads out over 95,000 acres. Because the river resides in this protected environment, it is crystal clear. There are over 50 species of fish to catch, including the much desiderated trophy fish, the smallmouth bass. The rushing river creates an oxygen rich environment perfect for supporting fish.

There are many local outfitters that will supply fishers with the perfect equipment to make the trip a roaring success, as well as river guides to help fishers find the perfect spot for a great day on the river. Fishers can also land perch and catfish along the BNR.
