Buffalo Point Annual Fishing Clinic
Contact: Mike Simpson, Lower District Interpreter , 870/449-4310
Attention aspiring anglers and fishermen interested in passing on the proud tradition of fishing in the Ozark waterways, come to the Annual Fishing Clinic at Buffalo Point on Buffalo National River on June 11th, 2011. In conjunction with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's Free Fishing Weekend, National Park Service Staff and Volunteers will be providing instruction on all aspects of fishing, to include baiting hooks, casting, retrieval and filleting of that regulation catch, as well as activities and discussions designed to better inform the public of the issues we collectively face as stewards of our natural environment.

Did you know that over 400 Rocky Mountain elk live in and around Buffalo National River? In the early 1980s elk were relocated to the Buffalo River region to replace an eastern elk subspecies that was extirpated in the 1800s.
