CROOKED CREEK BUFFALO RIVER BULL SHOALS

WHITE RIVER

  • In it's 720-mile journey, the White River undergoes several transformations. It begins as a small, mountain stream, and ends up as a broad, meandering waterway serving the barge and towboat industry. In between, the river's flow is interrupted by at least five dams in Arkansas (Beaver, Table Rock, Bull Shoals, Norfork, and Sequoyah.)
  • Bull Shoals, the largest dam, is responsible for converting what had been a warm water fishery into one of the nation's premier stretches of Trout habitat. The hydro-powered cold water discharges from deep within the lake keep the White River a year round ideal temperature for Rainbow, Brown, and Cutthroat Trout.

  • The White River is one of the most famous float fishing streams in the world. Probably more Rainbow Trout are caught here each year than in any other trout stream in America. The Game and Fish Commission stocks hundreds of thousands of Rainbows, Browns, and Cutthroat in the White annually.
  • Bull Shoals to Cotter is the stretch of river best known for trophy Brown Trouts. In 1972, Gordon Lackey landed a Brown weighing 31-pounds, 8-ounces. This stood as the North American record until 1977, when a 33-pound, 8-ounce monster, just a few ounces under the world record, was caught. Then in 1986, Tony Salamon landed a 30-pound, 8-ounce giant that set a new world line-class record for 6-pound-test line. 5-10 pounders are common, and anglers have a great chance of landing an 11-20+ pound trophy on any given day.
