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.

My family fished there this summer and the fish were the biggest and best tasting they have ever been!!!

Definitely a nice place to relax me and my family are here right now.

It's been years since I was at Gaston's, it's a great place to stay, eat, & fish!!

Just thinking about the White river today. Bless that cool water.

I love Gaston's!

Every year, I say I’m going to do this....

Can’t wait to fish in October!!

Michael White need to get that trip I got you booked.

Now that school is back in session the river doesn’t have as much fishing pressure. This is a great time to avoid the crowds on the river. Fall fishing is booking up quickly, so don’t hesitate to plan your fishing trip.

Wow! Nice!

Biggest rainbows we’ve seen in many years and my mother in law said they were also the best tasting!!!

Congratulations Jennifer nice fish 🎣

Me Go?

Congrats! I hooked into a monster there three days ago.He took the worm from 15 yards off shore and just exploded to the middle of the river.I had him on for about ten min.It was like the Loch Ness monster,I could'nt pull it at all.He went back and forth surfaced and I seen his dorsal fin... It appeared to be about 5 in high and 6-8 in long.I called to a boat to assist me at that time he took off again down stream about 20 yards,broke water and snapped my 4 lb.tess line at the hook.Just 2more min.He would have been mine....it's the truth.

Nice job

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.
