Norfork Lake Arkansas near Mountain Home in the Ozarks Mountains region fishing report and lake condition by Scuba Steve from Blackburns Resort and Boat rental.

The lake level is 565.11 and has dropped over 4-inches in the last 24-hours with both generators running continuously. The surface water temperature is just under 90-degrees and the water is clearing a bit since the holiday churning but the visibility is still not very good. The White River at Newport is at 13.93 and is easily regulated to about 14-feet with no rain except for one shower since June 6th. The wind has shifted to from the north and it is much more comfortable today with highs near 90. Some nice bass are being caught after dark with the black light and saltcraw and some crappie are still in the same places. Blackburns Brush Piles should be coming into play soon after being too deep for most of the year. The ones that are in 30-ft. of water now have fish on them. Cast that Bobby Garland Blue Ice Baby Shad jig past the brush and let it sink into it. The water is dropping too fast for limb or trot lines but if you drop shot a jug in about 25-35 ft. of water some catfish are biting on live bluegill. Other than that jigging spoons are still the best in early morning with temperate bass on shad  35-60 ft. down and it does not reaslly matter how deep the water is. Blackburns has a one bedroom cabin open now so give Debbie a call at 870-492-5115 before you end up paying too much elsewhere. A free boat stall comes with your cabin and they are $90/day and $425/week. The savings goes a long way towards paying for the gas.  We will not charge you too much.
