The fishing season does not close here on Norfork Lake Arkansas. The lake does not freeze over and fishing is good throughout the winter. You cannot walk on our water or drill holes in it. Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental is open all year and has a boat ready for you to rent if you have already put yours in storage. If you are looking for a new place to stay or if your normal place is closed for the winter call 1-800-635-0526 and we will fix you up. Fishing is getting good here now. Water temperature is 64 degrees.
