Best Fishing Locations in the Arkansas Timberlands

Fishers and hunters revere the waters and woods of the Arkansas Timberlands. Travel the rolling, pine-covered Timberlands to visit popular locations for enjoying the great outdoors.

Cane Creek, Millwood and White Oak Lake state parks all have great fishing, camping, hiking and other recreation. Moro Bay fishing grounds and state park are also lures for anglers.The 65,000-acre Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge, which contains the world's largest green-tree reservoir, is widely regarded as one of the state's best fishing venues. Lake Columbia is a 3,000-acre impoundment stretching for six miles along Beech Creek about six miles northwest of Magnolia. Largemouth bass are the lake's main drawing card, but fishing is also excellent for crappie, channel catfish, bluegills and red-ear sunfish. Flooded timber covers about half the lake.

The City of Hope, birthplace of former President Bill Clinton, gives tours of his boyhood home, which is now part of the Clinton Center. Just a few miles away, Historic Washington State Park preserves Arkansas's 1863-65 Confederate capital and the town where Sam Houston and others are said to have planned Texas' revolution.
