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.

Best place I have ever experienced for the outdoors!!!

The quality of the trout has increased impressively over the last 3 years. The slot limit change has done great things for the fishery. I hope it keeps improving! Thinking back to 35 years ago when we started coming up there... for many years we always caught big numbers of trout, but they were usually small with an occasional lunker. That trend stayed the same until about 3 years ago. Last couple trips up We’ve caught over a dozen 2-4 lb trout per weekend. Glad to see the change.

You won't want to miss out on this weekend's dinner specials! Fresh Halibut, Corvina, stuffed Chops, roast Duck, and Prime Rib on Saturday!

Best all-around experience ever

I miss this place.

We’ve gotta find a few days to get up there!

Last week Aly Akers-Atkins, major league fishing reporter, spent a couple hours in a boat with us. She managed to catch this monster rainbow trout on her 2nd cast! Did we mention this was her first trout fishing trip?

First time fishing? No problem, our staff will take great care of you to ensure you have a memorable experience during your stay.

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.
