Our History

Gaston's White River Resort began 61 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.

Much like the temperatures, the fishing on the White has been even hotter this summer!There were so many personal bests caught lately that we lost count.

My hubby and I, and his 2 sisters from Arkansas, ate there at the restaurant, it was a fun adventure!

Congratulations, beautiful fish! It's a Golden Rainbow Trout not a Golden Trout, two different species.

Looks like golden salmon in Alaska!

We are looking forward to it!

Excellent job men 👊🏻🎣

I caught one last September and looking forward to our trip this September! Bringing my parents for moms 80th birthday!

Nice fish guys!!

Gorgeous

WV raises them and ships them to eastern states. In NC , they call them Palimino trout.

Wow, Congratulations!

Are the golden trout in the river year round?

We take pride in our work around the resort and the dedication of our team always pays off when people drive or fly in. We are introducing more people to our area than ever before and are expanding in nearly every department. We are looking to add a groundskeeper to our team who will do everything from keeping the poults and peacocks in line to designing the flower beds, to making sure things are in tip-top shape while taking in the White River.

This individual would perform the maintenance and upkeep of all grounds including the aviary exhibit, lawn areas, driveways, walkways, flower beds, irrigation systems, and recycling and trash management.

These positions are really great for individuals who enjoy working outside, who enjoy working with their hands, and have an interest in landscaping, hobby farming, or property maintenance.

Love to hear stories like this! Some of my best fishing stories involve my grandpa’s. Sure wish I could have one more trip or hear one more of their fishing tales.

We were just taking about this the other day. Gaston’s and Bull Shoal’s are some of the best memories we have with our kids, Mother’s and sister in years past! Can’t wait to be there again in a couple of weeks with our Grandson ❤️

Awesome job

We will be there in October!

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.
