There’s no better winter trout fishing than on the White River. Bundle up, pack your gear and head to the river. In the early winter is a great time to fish for trout on the White River below Bull Shoals, and watch for blue catfish. Find winter panfish in the Norfork along with Bull ShoalLake for lunker walleye in these cold months. Winter crappie fishing starts in mid-February. Most lakes don’t warm up enough for the crappie to turn on until mid-March. If you prefer some bass winter fishing, you’ll love Bull Shoal Lake for white bass streams; also, winter makes for float fish.
