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.

The river has been producing some quality browns this week! Early in morning, the river has been low enough to wade fish with the water rising in the afternoon. #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #catchandrelease ... See MoreSee Less

Last week we had several Baltimore Orioles along the river. This was the first time we can recall having any passing through our area. Here is a pair feeding next to our restaurant. #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #oriole #birdsofinstagram ... 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.
