Transition to murky water

Bull Shoals - Freshwater Fishing Report

Fly Fishermen

Fly fishing conditions were perfect this past weekend. Midges and emergers were catching trout all morning while it was overcast. Then when the sun came out, a caddis hatch made the water errupt. Little white caddis became the hot fly of the weekend.

Spin Cast Fishing

The preferred rod and reel set up includes a 6'-6'6" light action rod with 4-6 pound test line.

When fishing with the traditional River Rig the hot baits have been nightcrawlers, redworms, flourescent yellow powerbait, pink powerbait worms, and gulp worms.
For those who enjoy fishing with artificial lures (when the water is low) the bouyont, Colorado, and little cleo spoons have been bringing in many trout. For jig fishing the black and olive jigs in 1/8th oz and 1/16th oz will do the trick.


Please note that a trophy trout released can be replicated if you have the dimensions and pictures of the fish so that one day someone else can experience a great trophy trout as well.
It is rewarding to see the bait fisherman, fly fisherman, guides, operators and the public working together in the best interest of the White River and it's Trophy Trout fishing program. Just proves what a bit of teamwork will do.

Good luck with your fishing and take a buddy along to make memories for a lifetime.
