Our History

Gaston's White River Resort began 59 years ago when Al Gaston, Jim Gaston's father, purchased 20 acres of White River frontage with six small cottages and six boats...the year was 1958. Present day, Jim’s grandson - Clint Gaston - will carry on the family legacy for many years to come. The resort now covers over 400 acres, and has 79 cottages ranging in size from two double beds to ten private bedrooms. The airstrip has grown from 1,800 feet to 3,200 feet. The six boats are now over 70, and with a state of the art dock to hold them all. The years have brought an award winning restaurant, private club, gift shop, tennis court, playground, game room, duck pond, three nature trails, swimming pool, conference lodge, and fly fishing school.

Beautiful place.

This place is calling me....again!

Are the trees starting to change? We will be there at the end of October for a couple weeks.

We were just there - other worldly.

We will be back the end of October. Gastons is beautiful when the leaves change.

Had dinner there last night. Out of this world good food.

I have actually flown a plane there. Cool spot!

A little rain doesn’t bother the trout. Landon caught and released this nice brown while fishing with one of our guides. Always brings the rain gear just to be on the safe side! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #catchamdrelease #browntrout ... See MoreSee Less

Landon Parker you are a big deal. There is no way around it.

Oftentimes the rainbows that make it over 18” fight harder than a 24” brown. That was the case for this 19.5” rainbow! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #whiteriver #fisharkansas #catchandrelease #rainbowtrout ... See MoreSee Less

Frequently asked questions

It seems redundant, but fishing is always good here. The White River stays the same temperature year-round and therefore the trout are always active. You should always be able to catch your limit. Also note that fly fishing is not the only way to fish here; over 85% of everyone that fishes here is spin fishing. You can produce excellent results fishing either way; the main thing is to have fun.
