As part of the tri-lake area of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals Lake is an inviting natural environment only 20 minutes from Historic Downtown Branson. As a warm, fresh water lake, Bull Shoals offers anglers a wide variety of fishing options. A number of Bass, including Large Mouth, Spotted and White are always popular sport, with Stripers, Crappie, Catfish and Walleye also accessible from Bull Shoals. Make note though, half of Bull Shoals rests in Arkansas. If you happen to be fishing on the Arkansas side without the appropriate license you will incur penalties.
Of course, fishing isn't the only recreational activity offered by Bull Shoals. With its warm climate, Bull Shoals makes for a great place to swim, and with the natural beauty it is also a great place to simply kick back and relax.
