You can drive around a turnabout next to the dam. It really has a beautiful view and gives you an idea of how deep the lake actually is.

Cotter Trout Dock Guided Trout Fishing Tours

Arkansas Trout Fishing Outfitter Guide Service Guided Arkansas (one day) trout fishing trips on the White River and overnight (two day or more) fishing camp trips on our private 15 Acre island in the White River. Buffalo River wilderness area bass fishing trips and fishing camp trips. All trips are fully outfitted by us. Guides, fishing gear, camping gear (wall tents, cots, etc.), food and cooks are all included.On our one day (or half day) trips you don't just fish in the vicinity of our dock (called "fishing local"). On our usual "full day" trip, you fish 14 miles and on our usual "half day" you fish 10 miles of the White River. We then "pick you up" (along with your guides and Jon boats) and bring you back to our dock location in Cotter in our Suburbans and/or vans.Covering this larger portion of the river gives your guide the opportunity to get you to more "holes" (deeper areas) of the river where the guide knows the trout are likely to be. Catching 30 - 40 trout per day per person is not unusual. You can only keep five.If you prefer not to fish, we also do site-seeing trips the same way. Try our Shore Lunch of bacon and tomato sandwiches, black-eyed peas, hush-puppies, french fries and strawberry shortcake or banana pudding along with your freshly caught trout! This is all cooked by your guide along the riverbank over a charcoal fire.

Have been fishing from Cotter Trout Dock annually since before Debbie and Ron took over many years ago. I have NEVER been disappointed. You are treated like family. I have used many different guides. They are ALL good. Most recent trip was with Paden. This young man really knows that river. I would not hesitate in recommending him. He put me onto fish all day without lulls. Had my usual GREAT time. Highly recommended.

Norfork National Fish Hatchery

Reviewed By Brandie H - Lincoln City, Oregon

The actual hatchery was interesting to walk through but the stream was so packed with kids fishing that they were practically snagging each others fishing lines. And the fish are so used to the fishing that you could literally see tons of trout sitting there and not even flinching when the bait was thrown at them. My son actually landed his bait right on top of a trout and it didn't even flinch! All of the piers and stairs need to have some type of skid stop put on them as my father in law fell while walking down the walkway and tore his quadricep muscle practically right off his hip/knee. He just got out of surgery yesterday to reattach it. For that reason, I only gave this place a 2. With the humidity and the moisture from the stream, the park should know better than to not have any type of footing/skid control on the walkways and jetty's. After seeing my father in law fall, I'd be hesitate to let my son go back out onto the pier to fish without a good pair of tennis shoes.

We are a specialty store that offers Amish goods and fine cheese from Wisconsin and the Amish. We have free samples of cheese for customers to try before they buy. We cant sample everything, but we usually have about 15 different kinds of cheese to try every day. The variety is different from day to day. We also have honey and different spices made locally. Other items too numerous to mention.

Perfect adventure! An aerial tour of Norfork Lake, White River, Bull Shoals Lake was spectacular. I bought this as a Father's Day gift and my dad loved it.
