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

There are a lot of red meat fish just east of Cranfield island about 100 yards. All kinds. Look for shad and spoon right into them or troll umbrellas or the smaller versions.  I am crappie, bass and walleye fishing on main lake point brush and doing pretty well. I am putting about 10-12 keepers of all kinds in the pond. Bink is on the stripers and catching several in the 8-9 pound range everyday at the other end of the lake. A few walleye are mixed in.  He said more and more people are finding his place and moving in on him but that is the way it works. I prefer to find my own fish and fish in peace and quiet. Remember posession limit is twice the daily limit. The November weather has been good for fishing so far and should continue for a while. Several resorts close for the winter but blackburns is open all year and has the best prices.  Call 870-492-5115
