Bull Shoals Lake enjoys wide recognition as a prime fishery. Holding several Arkansas and Missouri state records, the lakeís reputation is well justified. Opportunities abound for many species, ranging from pan fish to walleye. A fish attractor program to improve habitat and enhance fishing success has resulted in over 450 attractors being placed in Bull Shoals Lake. A map showing their location is available from the Visitor Information Center. The White River, downstream of Bull Shoals Lake Dam, is the premier trout fishery in the central United States and has yielded Arkansas state records for cutthroat and rainbow trout. Floating down the river in an Ozark johnboat and fishing for brown, brook, cutthroat, and rainbow trout is an experience found nowhere else. [Bull Shoals Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 02/03/2008]
