Fly Fish the White River

Details

Added by Parker Dodson

The White River offers world-class trout fishing that's good for all ages and skill levels. There are great camping spots in the State Park, as well as cabins for rent.

Spend a week or weekend trout fishing on the world famous White River, located in north central Arkansas.

The White River is a tailwater of Bull Shoals Lake, and is known worldwide as the “Capital of Trout Fishing.” Its beautiful banks are lined with fishing resorts that offer cabins, boat rentals, and guide services. The river is stocked by local fish hatcheries that keep the river full of great trout, year-round. Experienced fly fisherman will love the challenge of landing a trophy Rainbow or Brown Trout, which can be found up and down the river. Those that are new to trout fishing will also catch their fair share of great fish on a simple spin-cast set up.

Not only does the White River offer some of the best fishing in the world, but it also provides breathtaking scenery. Everything from waterfalls to large rock faces can be found along the tree-lined shores of the river. The river itself has crystal clear water that shines brilliantly in the sun.

The Bull Shoals-White River State Park is great place to camp, with 103 campsites along/near the river, as well as RV and camper parking. You can also rent a boat from the park's dock. After a long day of fishing, just throw your fish on the grill, sit back, and enjoy the views.
