Current Norfork Lake Conditions
Current Conditions As
of April 13, 2015
Spring is here on Norfork Lake, warm days and cooler nights make
for a pleasant trip to the lake, typical of the Ozark Mountains this time
of year. The dogwoods and red buds are waking from their winter sleep and
the forest is greening up nicely.
The lake has been very calm and peaceful as of late and is great
shape. Clean, flat as glass, and warming up, just as you would expect
Norfork Lake to be.
The lake level rose a bit lately, not uncommon for the spring. We
are about 3 feet higher than normal. The shoreline is still in the buck
brush at most locations, perfect conditions for your spring fishing trip.
All Norfork Lake Tourism members report operating as usual. The Corps of
Engineer parks and campgrounds are operating on their spring schedule. Be
sure to call 870-425-2700 for campsite availability.
Speaking of fishing, THE BITE”S ON, especially the night shift
bite. The action has been in the creeks, the flatter points, and the dam
area. Check with your favorite chamber member or our local
most up to date conditions.
For you anglers, the stripers are still somewhat scattered. The
night bite is in it's early stages and the top water action is just
around the corner. There are some crappie and walleye being boated right
For the best dates, better make your spring and summer plans now.
We’re filling fast!

HOW’S THE FISHING?
Overall, fishing has been incredible this year and will be for
years to come. Because of the 2002, 2008, and 2009 higher spring water
levels, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission reports the Norfork Lake fish
population has exploded. For up to date information, check the current
fishing reports published on our
or with your favorite chamber
member. Now is a good time to book that guided Norfork Lake Striper fishing
trip. The bite is on! And bring a big net, a really big net.
IS THE LAKE SAFE & CLEAN?
Absolutely! Norfork Lake is nationally famous for its pollution
free waters. The Corps of Engineers report no concerns regarding the
safety. The water quality of Norfork Lake is one of the best in the
Really not much. The same great features that Norfork Lake is
nationally famous and that you are accustomed to are available for your
