Norfork Tailwater Public Accesses

There are four public accesses built and maintained by Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the Corps of Engineers and the Norfork Hatchery along this 4.8 mile long tailwater. Maps are available in the free AGFC Trout Guidebook. GPS Coordinates are provided as a convenience and have not been verified physically. The information provided on this website is offered as a public service. Readers assume all risk and responsibility.

The tailwater is subject to strong and variable currents. Please use common sense and take precautions such as: fish with a friend, wear a wading belt, and consider using an inflatable life jacket and a wading staff. Watch for changes in water levels and get out immediately if you hear the horn or notice rising water.
