Roundhouse Shoals Fly Fishing: Trout, Fun & Relaxation

Roundhouse Shoals Fly Fishing and Lodge Services on the White River in Arkansas

The Arkansas Ozarks' two pristine tailwaters, the White River and its tributary the Norfork River, flow cold and clear year-round. These rivers' chemistry and temperature provide the perfect mix for healthy trout and the foods trout need.

Because of the wide variety of aquatic and terristrial insects and bait fish, the fly-fisher can utilize all sorts of fly fishing techniques.

Guides for all types of fishing ...

Owner and guide, George Peters, and his associate guides are proficient in all methods that are productive on these storied rivers. From throwing large streamers to delicate presentations of size-24 dry flies, the Roundhouse group is ready to provide you with a great fishing experience in a beautiful setting.

We find wading the best approach to fishing on our rivers. However, we have drift boats and 'Jon' boats available if the circumstances require their use. In addition, we can supply most equipment for successful fly fishing, for those who do not own it.
