wade fishing - go by yourself or with a guide

Any way you choose to do it, trout fishing at Tall Pine is some of the best in America. And we have the records to prove it! The former All Tackle World Record brown trout was caught 15 minutes away. This brown trout, which weighed 32 pounds, is still the 2nd largest brown ever caught anywhere in the world. The 3rd largest brown ever caught was also caught 15 minutes from Tall Pine. There have been many other line class record fish caught in this area. But big fish are not all we have. It is normal to catch from 30 to 60 trout in a day's fishing here.

boat fishing - rent a boat or go with a guide

When you fish the White or North Fork rivers you'll also enjoy some specatular Ozark Mountain scenery. The water is a clear emerald green. Bluffs rise some 150 to 200 feet above the water. Meadows, wildlife, water fowl and other birds, and wildflowers are common sites along the river banks. You can rent a boat in the town of Norfork, which is ten minutes from Tall Pine, or you can go boat fishing with a guide who will provide the boat and all tackle. You can buy your fishing licenses and trout stamps in Norfork.
