Winter Trout Fishing in Arkansas: Follow the White River
Although many people may first think of Colorado, Montana, or Alaska, trout fishing in Arkansas is some of the best in the nation. Furthermore, unlike those other states, Arkansas’ winter tends to be rather mild, with temperatures rarely falling below 25 degrees during even the coldest weeks. Combine comfortable weather with the renowned White River—one of the most productive trout fisheries in the Lower 48—and you’ll have some of the best trout fishing in Arkansas. Nestled within the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks, Can-U-Canoe delivers unfettered access to the “Mighty White,” and has a stellar collection of lodging options that includes luxurious suites, small rustic cabins, and larger family cabins. Today we want to give you some insight into why the White River is such a highly sought winter trout destination.
As the temperatures dip and the humidity wanes in the Arkansas Ozarks, so do the number of visitors, creating the perfect environment for those wishing to avert large gatherings. Although we love summer, autumn is an excellent time for an Arkansas vacation. A perpetual breeze circulating throughout the forested highlands brings about a bevy of outdoor activities that are seemingly more enjoyable in cooler weather. Vast green spaces, once filled with numerous patrons, are now yours for the taking. Another considerable attribute of a fall getaway to our neck of the woods is the vibrant spectrum of crimson, amber, and gold showcased by the surrounding hardwoods as they morph the local landscape into a whimsical autumn paradise. The most apparent result of this yearly transformation is a new perspective that lends itself to captivating day trips, sightseeing, photography, and other things to do in Eureka Springs.
Water is a primary characteristic when describing the Ozarks to someone who has never been here. From tales of magical waters to stories told by those returning from this majestic region, water plays a pivotal role in creating a sense of place in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. As such, fishing is a dominant water sport enjoyed by those who live in and travel to the area. Two of our favorite and most convenient places for fishing in Eureka Springs are Beaver Lake and the White River.
Kayaking is a favorite pastime among many people, and it is easy to see why. The minute you push off from shore and dip your paddle into the waters, you will be surrounded by nature’s beauty.
