Fishing The North Fork River
The North Fork River flows from the Norfork Dam four and a half miles to the White River. The White River then travels down the entire state of Arkansas and flows into the Arkansas River. The Arkansas River then flows 5 miles east to the Mississippi River. The North Fork River holds many state trout records to include a previously held 38.9 lb. German Brown Trout and a 5 lb. Brook Trout. Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout are also common. The cold temperatures of the North Fork River range from 47-54 degrees year round as this water comes from 90 feet below Lake Norfork. Swimming in the North Fork River is not encouraged. The cold water and water flows from the Norfork Dam turbines can be very dangerous.

Guided Bait Fishing Trips
If you have no boating experience on the North Fork River, we suggest that you reserve a guide with us. Full or half day guided fishing trips will ensure a safe and enjoyable day. Gene's Resort supplies night crawlers, corn, and bait fishing rods/reels at no extra charge on all guided bait trout fishing trips. Of course you may bring your own tackle (rods/reels) and permit the guide to set up your tackle accordingly.

Guided Fly Fishing Trips
If you are an experienced fly fishing angler, or just starting to learn this technique, Gene's Resort can place you with a professional fly fishing guide. Our guides have spent over 15 years understanding the North Fork River and its diverse subsurface ecology. Casting instructions, fly selection, and the identification of trout food (aquatic insects) are included in all fly fishing prices. Wade or drift fishing varies depending on water levels. Please bring your own waders and fly rod/reel. We suggest you have a 5 to 6 weight floating line. Gene’s Resort will supply the appropriate flies and leaders for the North Fork River. At the end of any guided trout fishing trip, your guide will be glad to clean (filet if requested) and sack your trout. Ask us about the Catch and Release Trout Programs to receive a Catch & Release Pin and Certificate.
