MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers’ Mountain Home Project Office is offering a limited number of fish cover permits for Bull Shoals Lake.
Only 50 permits on Bull Shoals Lake will be issued on a first come, first served basis. These permits will be available at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018.
A fish cover permit allows an individual to cut up to six cedar trees, six inches or smaller in diameter at the stump, from designated areas of the shoreline or pick up dead trees along the shore and sink them into the lake for fish habitat.
Many of the best fishing locations on Bull Shoals Lake are above brush piles that attract and shelter a variety of fish.
Before an individual is allowed to cut or sink trees, he or she must obtain a free permit from the Corps of Engineers Project Office at 324 W. 7th Street in Mountain Home, Ark.
