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.

Beautiful place! Raised in Lakeview it was so awesome having both the Bull Shoals Lake & the White River just about 1 mile or so down the road walking. My was a guide there as was my brother. At 15 was my 1st real job as a bus girl, you always made great tips🙂. Now as a Grandma I still live in Lakeview & take my grandkids down 2 Gastons to see all the birds & 2 the lookout in Bull Shoals, which is a treat also.

Found this picture in the National Geographic of November 1970

Ate there several times long ago with my Aunt from Mountain Home. Good memories.

Check out the vibrant colors on this rainbow that Gary caught and released while fishing with Jarrod Ruggles!Beautiful colored up STUD Rainbow my friend Gary stuck ! What an awesome display this fish was wearing. We’re definitely in that transitional bite and have had to work a little harder at times for opportunities. But with that said, Caddis is RIGHT around the corner. Water temps will be slowly increasing and we will definitely start to see more bugs with every passing day. @gastonswhiteriverresort

Beautiful rainbow!!

But if you're a veteran and I mean for example combat veteran Marine Corps Army for example and who's history and sacrifice made it possible for businesses like this to make money off of veterans and others, believe this, this company who thanks Veterans for their service and celebrates Veterans Day and memorial Day, does not offer a legitimate veteran a discount. Am I missing something? How do I know? Cuz the manager told me so.

Craig’s day was off to a great start, but got exponentially better when he caught and released this stud brown while fishing with our guide, Ron Chaney.

Frequently Asked Questions


The 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.
