Get Ready For Your Buffalo Adventure

SPRING is upon us and time is approaching for our Buffalo River Wilderness drift boat camping floats.

We have just 18 seats available on 3 separate voyages down the wild, lower 27 miles of the Buffalo River in May and June: no roads, no phones,  no people; simply the flow of river, your companions and the native Ozark smallmouth bass.

Gray’s Sporting Journal carries a photo essay on a float on the Buffalo with our team in May last year through the masterful lens of outdoor photographer Tosh Brown. You can read Tosh’s thoughts on the Buffalo on his blog here.

Established as a National Park and our first National River in 1972, the Buffalo is undeniably one of the Ozarks’ and the US’ most treasured natural resources.

We are excited to offer a limited schedule of 3 day professionally guided drift boat fly fishing camping tours of the Buffalo River’s lower 25 miles (May and June 2016) wind-ing through the isolated and road-less Lower Buffalo Wilderness, or day floats on the middle reaches.

This is a rare opportunity for the fly fisher to experience the Ozark wilderness: soaring limestone bluffs, green valleys, birdsong, and the unhurried pace of the river: native smallmouth are the primary target, you may also encounter river largemouth, abundant panfish and perhaps a prehistoric gar.

Our guides will float you safely down the river and show you the best water and techniques all from the stable and spacious platform of a drift boat. This is a chance to enjoy Arkansas’ most beloved river the way it’s meant to be enjoyed – in comfort and in no hurry.

Our commissary team will set up your own tent, and your gear, in preparation for your arrival each night. Enjoy gourmet meals prepared riverside, spectacular bluff views and the companionship of the guides, crew and your fishing companions around the campfire.

The camping trips include 4 nights accommodation (2 nights Rim Shoals, 2 nights on the river); 3 days drift boat guiding; meals and soft drinks; vehicle shuttles
