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.


What’s New

Reel em' in, kiss em', and let em' go!

The fishing has been great, with quality fish being caught. Browns and rainbows both have been eating shad consistently.

What are your plans for spring break?

Fantastic! Get kids hooked on the outdoors, not drugs. One addendum: never handle a trout with dry hands. Removing the protective slime allows fungi to attack, often resulting in death. Keep them young'uns fishing! Or hunting, or rodeoing, or whatever keeps them off streets. That is what is important.

Awesomeness! Now he’ll be hooked for life!!!

fished there last labor day weekend with matt and keith loved it! keith said this is not fishing this is catching 🤪🤪🤪🤪

That is the fishing back home

ALWAYS Give them a sugar kiss

See y’all next month!

I will be there this weekend.

This is a great article. And, as Clint stated, Everyone that stays at Gastons becomes family. That is certainly the way they treat you, as family.

Single digit temperatures early this morning. Fishing in weather like this isn’t for everybody, but it sure can be rewarding to those who embrace the elements! This nice brown trout was caught while fishing with our guide, Tyler Dost. Book a trip today! ... See MoreSee Less

Great job by Tyler and the entire Gastons team. Five Browns were caught (and released) that morning by our boat.

Nice!!!

A little snow this morning in the Ozarks. The fish don’t mind, and neither do these fishermen. #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #ozarks #snowwhiteriver #whiteriver #visitarkansas ... See MoreSee Less

I don’t like cold, but I think it would be worth it to bundle up if for no other reason to experience the quiet, peaceful setting.....

So pretty got to say over the years my job has taken us to some nice places but Gaston’s by far the nicest place and friendly staff I’ve ever seen

I understand that the White River is an excellent fishing destination but you can keep the snow.

@Kate hammer I’m ready

A great place to go to with a friend or two. LOL

Wish I was there.

That would be fun. Trout fishing in the snow.

A magical place!

Wishing I was there

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.
