White River

Gaston’s: Why We Love Fall In Lakeview, Arkansas

Fewer people

The fall season brings colder weather, which means the crowds start to go away. In the summer the White River is filled with people trying to catch the perfect trout and taking in the views of Bull Shoals Dam. This attracts travelers from all over for fishing, but in the fall the river is serene, the people are gone, and the sites are incredible.

The Views

Fall in Lakeview, Arkansas has two different faces. The first half offers cooler temperatures and a thick coverage of vibrant leaves. The leaves turn red, orange, and yellow and the river reflects the colorful leaves. The latter months the leaves begin to fall, and frost will cover the morning ground causing a shimmering effect.

Trout Fishing

The White River has been ranked one of the top places to fish for trout in the country White Riverincluding rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout. In the fall the trout come out to eat, and it is fantastic. Anglers willing to spend time are often rewarded by an encounter with the largest fish they have ever seen. In the fall instead of sitting back waiting for the perfect Rainbow Trout, you will spend your time actively casting and using your skilled techniques.

Wildlife Spotting

This is the time of year to spot wildlife! Mostly because of the time of the season but also because of the lack of crowds. You are more likely to spot wildlife on the riverside. Whether you see a bald eagle or a black bear, there is nothing better than catching a fish and seeing an amazing creature all on the same day.
