As is the case with all the accesses below Norfork tailwater, the river here is subject to rises and flows of generation from both Bull Shoals and Norfork powerhouses. If both powerhouses are operating at full capacity, which is often the case in the winter, spring, during summer peak power demand or during flood events, flows can reach 30,000 cfs. Low water fishing is only possible when the powerhouses have been shut for extended periods as sometimes happens in dry years during the fall, winter, and early spring or on some weekends. Only experienced boaters should attempt to float the river at higher stages. Some areas are very isolated, cell phone coverage poor, and no help available on the long stretches.

Trout Fishing on the White River - Calico Rock Public Access

One of my favorite trout fishing launching points on the famed White River. Fishing is AWESOME up and down stream from this launch.

The only reason it is not 5 stars is that the launch is a bit rough as the ramp needs to be maintained a bit better. Not that big of a deal for us kayakers but felt that it needed to be noted.
