THE RIVERS

Since the completion of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers' dam building projects in the early 1950's, Bull Shoals Dam (White River) and Norfork Dam (Norfork River), were drastically changed from the warm water, smallmouth bass fisheries they were famous for into the cold water fisheries they are today. This was due to the release of cold water from the reservoirs above the dams. With this, things changed forever and the smallmouth bass soon disappeared.  

The government had to mitigate the loss of this resource. Hatcheries were constructed and the stocking of trout into the rivers began. The past fifty years has been a time of experimentation, planning, and simply allowing the time for nature to take its course. That, along with recently established regulations and perhaps a touch of luck, has created some of the very best trout fisheries in the country.
Numerous state and world records have come from these rivers. The management of these fisheries continues to improve each year. There is an excellent stocking program of rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout. The rivers have fostered the natural reproduction of wild, brown trout. The White and Norfork Rivers offer the angling opportunity of a lifetime for both the experienced angler and the first time fly fisher.
