Norfork Lake Fishing Report By Scuba Steve From Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental On Norfork Lake Arkansas Near Mountain Home In the Ozark Mountains (Click Here for Comments)

Caught This Morning.Image title

Not much is changing. Surface temperature still in the mid 70's and clarity is poor both on main lake and creeks. There is no thermocline yet and fish are scattered at all depths on shad with some on brush on main lake points in 18-25 ft. of water. Fish are coming up most all day on these cloudy days but a lot are also being caught on jigging spoons when they go down. Many small bass are schooled and chasing shad as are white bass. Some stripers are as deep as 46 feet. Some nice Kentucky Bass are on brush and can be caught on a grub. I am not seeing a lot of big Largemouth and the smallmouth bite has slowed. It has been very cloudy but not much total rain so far. Lake level is still just under 554 with one generator running for several days. It is to be sunny later this weekend.
