I haven't been to fish the tailwaters at Norfork. I also haven't had a river be as hard on me as NFOW. But I'd pick NFOW over just about any other body of water for trout. That place has me. I don't know why. 

I get it.  I’ve fished both extensively but Norfork has more fish and bigger fish.  He said he’s only caught trout in one river.  Way better chance to catch fish at norfork than the NFOTW.

I'm not a big fan of tailwater fishing but if I had to choose one that I was familiar with, to spend a week on, it would definitely be Norfork.    The size and the typical release/fallout schedule appeal to me more than any of the others I have spent time on.    

I concocted a streamer there once that my buddy named the Baxter Blonde.  And we HAMMERED them on that fly during a shad kill, and then hammered them on a #12 pregnant scud pattern during the times that the shad weren't present.  It was a really great time.
