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.

Check out this 32” monster brown trout James Jackson caught and released a couple days ago!

Fishing from a boat certainly has advantages, but don’t let that keep you from fishing from the river bank. We’ve got over a mile of riverfront property that is all fishable.

Do you know that guy? What a healthy looking monster...

Holy shit! Great catch!

Allen W Gregory, I bet that’s the same one you caught back in the summer

Paige Brazil check out that trout!

Good fish!! It’s always good to catch and release. My son caught this same fish and released it also.

David Dorcas lets go trout fishing next year!

Released? I hope!

JoDonn Elder can attest to the bank fishing.. Pulled a heck of a rainbow jut behind the cabin last year with flow high.

Dustin Blevens is this the one you hung?

Dang!!!

Thanks

See you Thanksgiving!😊

Can't wait to get out on the river with our guide!

Back to normal now?

This weekend’s forecast couldn’t be any better. Mid 60’s tomorrow and 70 on Sunday.

Not only is the weather great, but we have had some low water for wade fishing.

Fall fishing at its finest!

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.
