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 553.46 and has dropped 1-inch in the last 24-hours with one generator running for about 18-hours and the White River at Newport is 11.78 feet. The surface water temperature was just over 46 when I came in at dark last evening. The water clarity remains about the same and you can see your lure down about 5-feet on the main lake and less in the creeks. The lake overall is in good condition but the fishing is not the best. Try a grub on the inside points near deep water on the bottom for bass and crappie in the late evening on a slip float with minnow on brush or a 2-inch jig. White seems to be the best color.  Trolling umbrellas for a temperate bass in the mornings through shad is catching a few. We will see what the snow does to the fishing. It cannot hurt anything. Bass Catters are welcome here at Blackburns and we have the best prices.
