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.

Will your regular dinner menu be available?

Our area has more to offer than just trout fishing. If you haven’t ever fished our catch and release pond, you’re missing out. It’s stocked with bluegill, bass, catfish, and carp.

It’s a great way to introduce kids to the fly fishing scene!

For one of the best fishing experiences ever this is the place....

Amazing experience here. Such hospitable staff and amazing food.

Usually, the ladies land the most fish and/or the biggest since they sit closest to the guide, but this husband managed to stay in the game! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #catchandrelease #whiteriver #visitarkansas ... See MoreSee Less

Gaston's White River Resort

Outdoor Photography Paradise!When you visit Gaston's Resort, you will see a lot of rainbow and German brown trout on a fishing outing, and at the same time, you might even get up close and personal with one of the area's bald eagles as seen in this photo. Gaston's is a fun place for a fishing get-a-way and a great place to just enjoy nature! ... 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.
