Another White River question: Boats
I understand the White River at Bull Shoals isn't fishable from shore when they're releasing water so you need a boat at those times.
Is this the sort of water that you want experience with before putting in a boat? What sort of boat do you need to be safe?
Alternatively, is their other fishing nearby (species doesn't matter) for either fishing the bank or from small boats/canoes for the times they are releasing water?
