Norfork Lake is an outstanding fishery, drawing fishing enthusiasts from across the country and hosting tournaments for several species of fish. The lake is well known among anglers for the striped bass it yields. The cold water of the North Fork River, downstream of Norfork Lake Dam, is a world-class stream. The Arkansas record brook trout and a previous world record brown trout were taken from the river. The Norfork National Fish Hatchery is located below the dam and produces trout for stocking in the North Fork and other suitable waters in Arkansas and contiguous states.

This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Norfork Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
