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.


What’s New

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

Nice Brown! Thank you for making it a Catch and Release!

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

It doesn’t matter if you’re in a boat, kayak, or just wade fishing as long as your hook is in the water, you have a chance to catch a trophy brown. Zachary Johns caught and released this 27” brown while fishing from his kayak in front of our restaurant. #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #whiteriver #catchandrelease ... See MoreSee Less

The water conditions have been perfect for wade fishing lately. Take advantage of it while you can! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #whiteriver #fisharkansas #flyfishing ... See MoreSee Less

Wish I was there.

You should tell your staff not to list you if they are going to have fun on praises terrorists.

It’s not always about catching fish... There’s just something special about watching the sunrise as you cast into the White River. Thank you to John Love for sharing this wonderful picture with us from his recent visit.

My kinda place for sure

You are so right! It’s absolutely beautiful at sunrise! Definitely going to try to back next year!

YES!!!!!

It is one of my favorite places to fly into for a weekend or even just to eat at their great restaurant. We have had several Fly-In there from Shelby Co Airport Alabama.

Karen Fischer

Magical. Husband and I spent a week there many years ago with two other couples. Peaceful, quiet, great food and great fishing. Hope to return someday.

John Lee

I’ve been going there for years. I have never grown tired of the great relaxing atmosphere they have to offer. Looking forward to returning for the 🤔 29th time this fall.

We visited one afternoon and it's really a neat place. The setting is just magical and the resort itself is really awesome. Great restaurant and fun shop. Even if you didn't fish it would still be a really fun place to stay.

Beautiful picture!

I've seen so much beauty and I'll never see enough

One of our favorite places 💕

With school starting this week across most of the country, we hope everyone enjoyed their summer break. We hope all the kids had an opportunity to do some fishing before their first day back to school. If school hasn’t started in your area yet, then you still have time to put a rod in their hands!! #gastons #gastons #whiteriver #fisharkansas #letemgoletemgrow #catchandrelease #summerstooshort ...

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.
