Boat Fishing Late March

Recommended Posts

Hello - 

My family and I take a trip each year to taneycomo, this year we are mixing it up and traveling to Norfork Tailwater. We have 1 jet boat but the rest are props. Hoping on rain, but if it doesn't rain, is this whole stretch accessible by prop? Or are we pretty much limited to generation? 

Also are you only allowed to keep 1 fish over 14 inches?

Thank you in advance.

Here are the new regulations for the White and Norfork effective Jan 1, 2018..

As far as boating the Norfork on minimum flow, I would suggest  not going past Long Hole even with a jet. Also the amount of rain has little effect on the Norfork since it is only 5 miles long and only  a couple of small creeks flow into it. A kayak is probably the best option to float the entire river.

Thank you for the help. We are staying at Genes Trout resort, so hopefully we can boat a little around that area. We also plan on fishing the Norfork Lake for crappie, walleye and catfish (trot lines). Super excited about our trip. At Lake Taneycomo it seems that the more it rains the more they run the generators.  I know its based on energy needs, but doesn't the Lake level make generation more frequent? When I called genes, they mentioned that we would have no problem putting in and running in March. Hoping for high water. Thanks again!
