About the White River in Arkansas

The White River, of northwest Arkansas, flows north and east into Missouri then back into Arkansas. The river travels a total of 720 miles to its confluence with the Mississippi River.  The upper end of the White has been impounded in several places to form three major reservoirs (Beaver, Table Rock, and Bull Shoals) and a river-run lake (Taneycomo).  The White River basin drain contains about 27,765 square miles with crystal clear water and a bottom composed of gravel, bedrock and sand.  The White River below the Bull Shoals Dam is one of the most famous trout fisheries in the world.

Fishing Tips

The White River is home to some awesome trout fishing.  It is one of the better rivers in the midwest if you’re looking for action with the shot at a trophy fish too.  Rainbow trout are loaded in this river due to an excellent stocking program.  The brown trout fishing is also very good with some very big fish available in this river.  Take a look at our White River Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
