    8. Greer's Ferry Lake

      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.

      This is a fish-catchin' lake if there ever was one... catch crappie year round. Bring extra props though if you're fishing the lake--lots and lots of trees.

  4. Ozark's Tailwaters

    1. White River

      headhunter-logo-2.jpg

      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.

    2. Norfork Tailwater

      trophyanglersguild

      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!!

    3. Little Red River

      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.

    4. Beaver Tailwater/Upper White River

      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.

    5. Truman Tailwater/Upper Osage River

      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.

    6. Bagnell Dam Tailwater/Lower Osage River

      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.

    7. Powersite Dam Tailwater

      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 species that swims in Bull Shoals Lake can be caught there under the right seasonal and water conditions.
