Night Fishing on the White River

Night trips are 4-5  hours in duration and begin one hour after the water shuts down at Bull Shoals Dam.

Outings typically start an hour after dark but are dependent on the water generation.

We prefer to take skilled anglers to keep the trip more productive so casting a fly rod is a must.  

Many nights 7 and 8 weight rods are common practice when moving large streamers and mouse patterns.

If you can really control the cast and shoot line you will have a better trip, then tangling all night.

We don’t use glow in the dark strike indicators.

It’s all by feel, swinging streamers and slow stripping mouse patterns.

Communication with your guide is extremely important as the ever changing forecast for generation can change and with that makes 2 person trips at night more difficult.
