The water levels on the North Fork River change daily due to the 2 turbine generators on the Norfork dam that the Corps of Engineers operates to made hydroelectric power. The water levels can rise and fall very quickly because of the length of the river. The North Fork is only 3 1/2 to 4 miles long from the dam to the confluence at the White. For the current water levels, call (870) 431-5311.
