The White River, in its entirety, is an impressive river system beginning around Fayetteville, Arkansas. The river flows north and has two dams along the way before it reaches most well-known trout section on the system. The dam at Bull Shoals Lake, in north central Arkansas, is where most people’s knowledge of the White River trophy water begins. It continues nearly 100 miles south, creating one heck of a trout fishery. The main reason this river stays cold enough for trout to live comfortably for all those miles is because the White’s little sister and lesser-known river, the Norfork, a short but very sweet tailwater that only runs 4.5 miles in length. Despite the Norfork River being only a few miles long, it flows into the White 40 miles downstream and pumps a lot of cold water and nutrients, allowing the water to become even cooler and support trout for another 50+ miles. Both rivers have had world record brown trout and are unique and fantastic in each of their own rights. Having two trout-filled tailwaters only a short drive from each other allows us to have options to choose from, enabling us to accommodate the angler’s exact wants and desires for their day of fishing.
