water, trophy trout, and magnificent scenery combine
to create one of the world's finest trout streams: the
White River issues from the large hydroelectric dam known
as Bull Shoals Dam. The overlook near Bull Shoals Dam
affords you a spectacular view of both Bull Shoals Lake
and the White River.
cold water released into the White River from the bottom
of Bull Shoals Lake creates an excellent habitat for
rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout.
fishing the shoals is popular on the White River as is
fishing from a flat-bottom johnboat.
picnic areas, and easy-access boat launching ramps can
be found at several locations on the river. One of the
most popular sites is Bull Shoals State
Park, just below Bull Shoals Dam. Riverside campsites
are enhanced by a natural spring which is sheltered by
a rock rip-rap outdoor "auditorium." To reserve
a campsite at Bull Shoals State Park, call (870) 431-5521.
