Arkansas in fall is arguably some of the best White River trout fishing you can find. The gentle foothills, forested ridges, meandering tributaries, and diverse ecosystems—including an abundance of trout, come together to forge an angling experience unlike any other. To add to the allure, dropping temperatures and diminishing crowds means that you’ll be more comfortable while enjoying the sprawling woodlands and flowing rivers exemplified by our regional paradise. As the fall foliage becomes more prominent, the hardwood woodlots begin to take on a rust-colored hue, lending itself to become the perfect backdrop for adventure in a seemingly new environment. Located just ten minutes south of Bull Shoals, Gaston’s White River Resort is the ideal basecamp for an Arkansas fishing trip. Although fishing is many people’s primary objective, below we share a few ideas on how to maximize your stay in the White River Valley.
