Bull Shoals Lake Fishing Report 06.21.10
Submitted by Wilkinson Outdoor AdventuresSubmitted on 06/21/2010
Fishing has been a bit spotty over the last week but other than a couple of slow days we're seeing quality fish on almost every outing. The Norfork is still producing alot of quality browns, bows and cutts, especially during the week when fishing pressure is low and Bull Shoals Dam is holding the largest rainbows I've seen in several years, a bunch of 16-20 inchers with the occasional fish over 20. The algae flow has also decreased significantly and the lower stretches are producing very high numbers. I fished Rim Shoals area yesterday and had consistent action almost all day with only minor interference from the moss and algae. The Wildcat Shoals area is also fishing very well offering high numbers and the occasional big fish. Fly selection has been pretty standard for high water, eggs, worms, sunday specials, larger midge patterns, and shad patterns at BSD have been effective. I've been spending most of my time on the Norfork and at BSD because of the quality of fish but other areas are producing much higher numbers. I've always been a quality over quantity guy but I always leave that decision to the client. Either way, there are plenty of fly fishing options in the Ozarks. I've also been hammering the bass(smallies and largemouth) on Crooked Creek on my days off and have heard some good reports about the Buffalo River as well. Good fishing!
