Heading down to Norfork for a couple days next week if all works out. Will be around Mt. Home and wanted to try some stripper fishing. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I'll be taking my boat.

Thank you!

J.E.

I hope you get some Mt. Home area fishermen to answer your post.

If you're really interested in learning about fishing for Stripers/Hybrids on Norfork Lake I would suggest you consider at least one trip with a good guide. Darrell Binkley owns Bink's Guide Service, knows his business and is a nice guy.

I have some good friends that fish with him and highly recommend him as a fly fishing or artificial lure guide. His website is www.binksguideservice.com

Also, thought I would let you know you incorrectly spelled Stripers. I assume that was unintentional. You might get some different types of reponses to your request for help with "strippers". Mt. Home may have some, but I couldn't help you with that.

Here is the most recent fishing report for Norfork I can find:

If you have a boat and plan to go it on your own, I would suggest you call every resort and marina you can find from Google searching "Norfork Lake Stripers" and also find out the name and # of the local game warden that works the lake. They are excellent sources of current info.

Good luck, and let us know how you do.

Bill

Hey Butts... If you hit Norfork or Bull Shoals in the middle of summer, hold up a cold six pack of Bud, you'll get a few "strippers" come out of the woodwork.... Just like Mardi Gras and beads.... :lol:

I do pretty well trolling a $50 bill down Independence Avenue. But Kansas City is a long way from Mountain Home.

With all this nice weather, there should be some fish up toward the Arkansas line and even on the Missouri side.

Word is they've been catching stripers below the 160 bridge.

Catman70,

Thanks for your post.

What do you mean by "below the 160"?

Are you talking about right at Tecumseh, or down the river channel a ways, and if so about how far?

Do you know anyone personally that has experienced this recently?

Any additional info would be helpful.

Thanks again,

Bill
