Fish, Food and Fun in Mountain Home This Weekend

Kerry Kraus
Looking for something to do this weekend? Head to Mountain Home and take part in the 2nd annual Norfork National Fish Hatchery Open House on May 2. First, stop in at the Visitors’ Center to learn the story of the hatchery, the fish it produces and about the wildlife of the Ozarks.


The event includes vendors and exhibitors, games, instruction for spin, bait and fly-casting; fly-tying demonstrations, hatchery tours and other activities.  There will also be free food.


The Norfork hatchery averages 280,000 visitors annually and is open 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. It has been declared by the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce as the major tourist attraction in Baxter County!


Go see for yourself what all the fun is about.
