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.

I know who these two are! They went to a better obedience class than Merlin did.

Two best behaved dogs I've ever known!

Hey, that's my fish! I can't wait to come back! Steve Hooked Lopez is a fantastic guide!

Great color on that fish! Looks like it’s lit from the inside.

Beautiful sky on the river earlier this morning. As you can see, they are still running big water. Now is a great time to go after the browns! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #sunrise #trophyfish ... See MoreSee Less

Will be there in 2 weeks.

How long are they running each day? Has it been pretty consistent? Have they been at full gen?

From where this pic was taken, about how far is this from the restaurant?

Love that river of water.

Beautiful

Great time with a great friend!

❤️❤️

Y’all do such a great job updating and cleaning your facilities every year. Can’t wait to see it in June.

Love eating here...Clint and the staff do a fantastic job !! Please return the pork tenderloin sandwich to the menu...the best in the area !!

Stood on those scaffolding many years ..Dusted many many dust bunnies from those beautiful antiques....Oh how I miss this place !!!

Can't wait ...

I can't imagine what a job this is. Can't wait to get back there for some delicious food.

I can't imagine how time consuming that would be! We'r can't wait to come back!

Cannot wait for Sunday brunches again!

I remember the scaffolding and the air compressor going and wiping and cleaning. Moving the scaffolding up and down 5 sets of stairs!( I dont miss it) This clean job is no joke! Way to go Gaston's crew! I'm sure Cheri Mize Krug & crew made it look amazing!

I wish they’d clean my house.

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.
