Canoeing the White River
Canoeing is generally on the upper few dozen miles of the White River and below Bull Shoals Dam. Good spring canoeing on the upper section roughly parallels State hwy. 16.
Below Bull Shoals, the White has tremendous trout fishing along the scenic bluffs and inviting gravel bars for picnicking or overnight camping. The trout section of the river stretches a distance of about 90 miles, and numerous resorts, outfitters, trout docks and guide services have been established along the White River. Thousands of visitors to the river enjoy year round fishing on the beautiful White River, relaxing in a johnboat in the mist of the early morning fog or spending the day suspended between the blue sky and clear blue waters of the White River.
