Any way you choose to do it, trout fishing at Tall Pine is some of the best in America. And we have the records to prove it! The former All Tackle World Record brown trout was caught 15 minutes away. This brown trout, which weighed 32 pounds, is still the 2nd largest brown ever caught anywhere in the world. The 3rd largest brown ever caught was also caught 15 minutes from Tall Pine. There have been many other line class record fish caught in this area. But big fish are not all we have. It is normal to catch from 30 to 60 trout in a day's fishing here.
When you fish the White or North Fork rivers you'll also enjoy some spectacular Ozark Mountain scenery. The water is a clear emerald green. Bluffs rise some 150 to 200 feet above the water. Meadows, wildlife, water fowl and other birds, and wildflowers are common sites along the river banks. You can rent a boat in the town of Norfork, which is ten minutes from Tall Pine, or you can go boat fishing with a guide who will provide the boat and all tackle. You can buy your fishing licenses and trout stamps in Norfork.
About 20 minutes from Tall Pine is Norfork Lake, which is famous for large striped bass. You can also catch walleye, largemouth, smallmouth, catfish, and bream in Norfork. Rent a boat at one of the marinas, or go out with a guide who will provide the boat and all tackle.
My daughter and I built this two bedroom two bath 1,350 square foot lodge one log at a time, just like we did the cabin. And every log was placed with our guest's comfort in mind! Like our cabin, the lodge is made of solid aromatic native red cedar which smells wonderful. A Sunbeam Grill Master (on deck under in shade) waits for the chance to BBQ your favorite steak, or use the charcoal smoker. Outdoor deck lights make late night BBQ convenient. Enjoy outside dinners on our old-fashioned picnic tables. Your 8-person hot tub under the stars! A 6-foot high privacy fence encloses the back deck area. The double doors enter into the master bedroom suite. There are no other buildings around for nearly 1/2 mile, just Ozark forest. Oak flooring, aromatic cedar walls, antique light fixtures, and ceiling track lights create a warm room atmosphere.
This place is well maintained and is always neat and clean as a pin!
If the Lodge appears to be unavailable please call us as we do have others.
