2017 ORCA National in Branson Missouri - Photos!!

Post by bettybarr »

This is the Marina at The Chateau on the Lake, our hotel. It is right below the hotel and can be accessed by a walk or shuttle. We will have our Fishing Contest from here.
The Marina rents these pontoons or they have new bass boats. Canoes and kayaks are available too.
Here is a view of the hotel from the marina. We can also fish from the shore. Or you can bring your own boat and keep it in the secure parking lot or rent a slip, covered or open.

The Karl White Museum of Fishing History, Branson - Photos!!

Post by bettybarr »


This is an interesting collection of all things fishing. The reels are displayed by time period and are not labeled. It just opened in June so it is definitely a work in progress. The curator, Bill, took Don and me through it. Karl has quite a collection. He is an ORCA member many of you know. I hope that we can have our Thursday night Wine and Reels here. Bill thought it would be great.

That looks like a first class kind of venue and a Beautiful lake.
