Arkansas Fly Fishing Lodge #OI-WOA1

Trout Capital USA

The White and Norfork Rivers in Arkansas offer the angling opportunity of a lifetime for both the experienced angler and the first time fly fisher. The management of these fisheries continues to improve each year and they have produced numerous state and world records.  There is an excellent stocking program of rainbow cutthroat and brook trout, and the rivers have each fostered the natural production of wild brown trout.

World Class fly fishing Arkansas White and Norfork Rivers for four species of trout from a spectacular lodge.

Fish ON!
The White River is known as Trout Capitol USA
  • Four Species of Trout: Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Bonneville Cutthroat, Finespot Cutthroat, and Brook Trout.
  • Difficulty: Beginner to Advanced. This Arkansas fly fishing guide will show you a great time no matter your skill level.
  • Affordable
  • Lodging: Located in the heart of the Ozarks, the fishing lodge sits on the banks of a river that is world-famous or trout fishing, within view of “The Narrows”.
  • Year-Round Fishing: 
    • Late November through early March – Streamer fishing is the best option.
    • March through May – Ccaddis flies begin to hatch. This is an excellent time of year for both novice and experienced anglers to catch not only lots of fish but trophy fish as well on dries and nymph imitations.
    • June through September – The most exciting fly fishing is from June through September, as there are LOTS of terrestrial insects. Grasshoppers, cicadas, beetles, dragonflies and even tarantulas become important food sources for trout and they concentrate along the banks.

The White River

Fly fishing Arkansas White River with this outfitter is something special…and it’s arguably the best brown trout fishery in the US. It’s a great affordable destination to bring a son or daughter who is a beginner at fly-fishing, or for the advanced angler looking to target a truly once in a lifetime brown trout. The White River has over 100 mile of trout water and fish averaging 18 to 22 inches. Each year, many fish caught that weigh in over 10 pounds!

The White River is a truly world class fishery like few others anywhere in the world. Its reputation as a wild brown trout fishery is well deserved, producing some monster “once in a lifetime” fish.  Chasing these trophies can be an immensely rewarding challenge. The White River is also heavily stocked with 12 to 14 inch rainbow trout to provide consistent sport all year round on all water levels for all skill levels. Some rainbows, and cutthroat, can be still found well over 20 inches, truly remarkable captures.

The Norfork River

When fishing with this Arkansas fly fishing guide, you might take a break from the White River browns to float the Norfork for rainbows, cutthroats, and brookies. The Norfork River is a smaller river, that’s only about five miles, yet it boasts large populations of browns and rainbows. In addition the Norfork has some large 20+ inch Bonneville and Finespot cutthroat trout as well as a few trophy Brook trout.
