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.

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.

Our customers say to us that they will never fish with another out fitter because our boats are so much more comfortable safer as our boats are twenty five percent larger five feet longer gives a lot of room and it adds to the trip. also the fact that our guides do not smoke or curse and are much more helpful and curious. these are a few things we here also that one of the reasons they count the days till they can come back is the great shore lunch everyone comments that a big fish is the only that tops the fish they caught cooked for lunch
To say that our party of four enjoyed a half-day of trout fishing with Ralph Chatelain, of "White River Family Fishing," just wouldn't adequately describe the experience. He took us TROUT CATCHING, which is a whole lot more fun. We boarded his large, roomy boat at the State Park Trout Dock in the White River Tailwaters below Bull Shoals Dam. Over the next 4 1/2 hours, Ralph kept us entertained, kept our tackle in order, kept our bait in the water, and we caught a lot of trout. We kept our limit of 20 (four of us), but threw back more than that amount to fight another day. Ralph prepared us a terrific shore lunch with the trout we had just caught. Now that's a fresh fish dinner. We took our leftovers home for another dinner the next night. I won't even attempt to describe the beauty of the scenery along the White River, but recommend that you see if at your earliest opportunity. My best buddy told me that he believes it's so beautiful because that's where God plans to spend His retirement. Sounds reasonable to me. And yes, the next time I'm in the Bull Shoals area, I intend on going fishing again with Ralph Chatelain. You should too.

we specialize in guided trout fly fishing trips and instruction including all gear, lunch and beverages. all you need to bring is an Arkansas fishing license and a thirst for a great day on the river. we will either wade fish and/or boat fish. we take kids to dry run creek for an experience of a lifetime. streamer fishing is a specialty chasing 'big' brown trout.
On my recent trip to northern Arkansas to visit friends, I wanted to try fly fishing for the first time as I had heard about the rivers in the area and how great the trout fishing was. I found Blue Ribbon Guides and was put in touch with Dennis. We ended up on the White River and had a great day. As mentioned, this was my first time fly fishing but within a couple minutes of easy lessons from Dennis, I had the hang of it. The day was great as I caught quite a few rainbows and had a blast! Thank you Dennis and Blue Ribbon Guides....keep it up!

I paddled midweek, and this outfitter was less crowded than Wild Bill's. Good service and got me on the river fast, even though only two of us in van. Their tandem kayaks (sit-in) were showing their wear-and-tear but I don't know that the other outfitters...MoreThanks for the feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We have had some problems with the longevity on the brand of tandem sit-in kayaks we use. They are just not lasting as long as we wish.

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.
This is a great cheese barn...lots and lots of usual and unusual cheesed to be found here. They have unusual spices and interesting sauces. I will always stop here when in the area.

We came across the lake on the ferry and needed a place to park for lunch. A man on the ferry recommended this park. It was free to visit and use the restrooms. We were able to park the motorcycles and have a lunch in the shaded picnic areas. I have to say this was the cleanest and nicest smelling public bathroom I have EVER been in. They had trash cans nearby and running water we could wash up when we were done. It was a glorious picnic because of how nice everything was at this park.
