Default The White River System 2010


The White River system reservoirs of Table Rock, Bull Shoals and Norfork are nationally-known for their high-quality fishing and incomparable beauty.
Looking at a map of Missouri or Arkansas, you quickly notice that none of these lakes lie entirely in either state. Their location on the Missouri- Arkansas state line has caused confusion among anglers about fishing regulations. On Bull Shoals Lake, for example, an angler going from Pontiac to Oakland could cross the state line three times in less than two miles. Of course, fishing regulations change with each crossing.
To simplify matters, the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission have worked cooperatively to streamline regulations on these shared waters, as well as to improve fishing.
Residents of Missouri and Arkansas who possess a valid resident fishing permit from their respective states may also purchase a $10 White River Border Lakes Permit each year. The permit allows anglers to fish all three lakes in their entirety. Missouri anglers age 65 years and older who possess a valid Missouri driver's license from either state will need only to purchase the White River Border Lakes Permit. The permit is available at all Missouri and Arkansas permit vendor locations.
Whether fishing from shore or boat, anglers at Bull Shoals, Table Rock and Norfork lakes are still responsible for observing the regulations of the state in which they are fishing, as some regulations will continue to be different.
The regular, non-resident Missouri fishing permit will continue to be valid on all Missouri waters, including the three White River system border lakes. Likewise, Missouri residents who fish other Arkansas waters, such as the Beaver or Bull Shoals tailwaters, Greers Ferry or Beaver lakes, are still required to purchase a non-resident Arkansas fishing license.

Fisheries biologists from both states meet annually to discuss the past year`s sampling and stocking results. They also discuss future fisheries management objectives and strategies regarding shared waters, or waters that flow into the other state. This exchange of information has benefitted the biologists, the fisheries and the anglers of Missouri and Arkansas.

Stripers in Norfork are starting to be taken on Rogues and other suspending jerkbaits at night on points in the major creek arms.
