Default Norfork Lake

Norfork Lake

Mid-March brings the peak of the walleye spawn to the upper end of Norfork Lake, but at the lower end of the lake, the walleye spawn peaks a few days later along rocky points.
Early in the year, most walleye are caught on lures that imitate baitfish. After the spawn, you can catch them throughout the lake by trolling crankbaits and bouncing nightcrawlers on the bottom along dropoffs, flats and rocky points.
Beginning in April, white, striped and hybrid-striped bass migrate upriver toward Tecumseh and up Norfork`s major tributaries. White bass naturally reproduce in the lake, while striped and hybrid-striped bass are stocked annually by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.
These fish relate primarily to schools of shad. Once you find them, you cancatch them with jigs, stickbaits, topwater plugs and live shad. On the Missouri side of Norfork, anglers may harvest 15 of these three species in the aggregate, but only four may be longer than 18 inches.
With so many great fishing opportunities waiting for you at Table Rock, Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes, now is the perfect time to get your White River Border Lakes Permit
