Sometimes overshadowed by the incredible tailwater trout fishing below the lake, this beautiful lake in north-central AR has all the common sport fish of the region, plus Walleye and Hybrid Stripers, for which the lake currently holds World Record status.
Located below Bull Shoals Lake
One word - WOW!! Four species of trout - rainbow, brown, brook and cutthroat. Miles of holes and riffles below Bull Shoals Dam when the water is down... good stiff current for boating during generation. Spin or fly fishing--this is an incredible fishery.
Located below Norfork Lake.
4.8 miles of incredible trout fishing all year long. Again, you'll find rainbows, browns, brooks and cuts here. Special accesses allow fishing where fishing is the best- below the dam, McCellands and Handicap. Keep an eye on fishing reports- it gets good in the winter here!!
This world famous trout fishery is where the current world record Brown Trout was caught, a 40#4oz. monster. A tailwater below Greers Ferry Lake AR, rich in trout forage to quickly grow its resident Brown, Brook, Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout.
This is the upper-most cold water tailwater on the White River System. Though it flows only several miles before meeting Table Rock Lake, this beauty holds Brown, Rainbow, Brook and Cutthroat Trout as well as White Bass and even some renegade Hybrid Stripers from Beaver Lake.
This large tailwater is one section of the Osage River and is the headwaters of Lake of the Ozarks. It is a major fish factory, when water releases attract baitfish, containing Hybrid Stripers and White Bass, Walleye, Catfish and about everything else that swims the lake.
This very large tailwater river is the final stretch of Osage River before its eventual confluence with the Missouri River. Its waters hold a smorgasbord of fish, most notably Stripers, Hybrid Stripers, White Bass and Catfish.
This was the first dam constructed on the historic White River, being completed in 1915. It is the dam that created Lake Taneycomo, and the headwaters of Bull Shoals Lake. Any specie that swims in Bull Shoals Lake can be caught there under the right seasonal and water conditions.
The third largest spring in Missouri provides one and a half miles of spring branch fishing and 12 miles of Red ribbon fishing on the Niangua river for Rainbows and Trophy Browns. First stocked in 1900 and acquired by the state in 1923, it continues as a popular destination.
