Norfork Lake Conditions and fishing report By Scuba Steve From Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental Near Mountain Home (click here for comments)

Roger and Vicky Moody from Clinton, Illinois caught some good fish.Image title

The lake level is 553.56 with almost no generation. The lake is clearing before turnover. Our good friends Roger and Vicky Moody just left and we are sorry to see them go. It is getting a little old to go fishing and find the same people on your brush piles after you worked so hard to put them in. Fish the ones that the resort you are staying at put in or the corps of engineers or game and fish. I do not fish other people's brush and like to find good places on my own. There are a few top water fish late but many fish are still in open water on shad and the rest are on brush with a few just off the steep wind blown banks. Roger Moody caught some good ones on a white spinner bait yesterday. I caught only crappie and bass with a few bluegill. There are many small fish. I hate to see all of these 10-inch crappie killed. The resort is filling up nicely this fall with people taking advantage of the $53 cabins and free boat stalls. 870-492-5115. If you want to spend more just stay here and give the rest to disabled vets.
