Playing it safe on our tailwaters
Please – if you do not hire a White River fly fishing guide, at the very least, read through this website in order to gain a working understanding of the many variables that come into play when fly fishing any of the Ozark Mountain Tailwater trout fisheries. Keep in mind that the most dangerous situations occur when the water changes from being low to becoming high due to dam releases for power generation.
Fly Fishing Safety
When boating, keep in mind it takes years to learn how to effectively control a boat for fly fishing while also fishing yourself. For this reason it is recommended that someone always be in charge of running the vessel. Before getting out in a boat on high water anglers should seek experienced help. It’s too easy to get into trouble out there.
