Lake & River Fishing

Lake or river fishing, we're ready to assist you catch
your limit. Our docks have complete fish cleaning stations. We'll give you free freezer
space to preserve your catch until you're ready to return home.
Fishing on Bull Shoals lake is good almost all year,
but the best action occurs in March, April, and May. It slows in hot weather, then picks
up again in the cooler fall months. Largemouth, smallmouth, and Kentucky bass are the
primary sportfish. Bull Shoals also has an excellent population of walleye and crappie.
When it comes to river fishing you have a choice of
fishing for four species of trout -rainbow, cutthroat, brown, and brook - in the White and
North Fork Rivers. These two premier trout fishing rivers are some of the best in the
world. Indeed several World Line Class records have been set on the White and North Fork,
including two of the three largest brown trout ever caught anywhere in the world!
