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.

This young man has made the most of his summer break catching some great rainbow and brown trout. Here is a picture of one of his biggest rainbows caught below the Bull Shoals Dam.

Great memories from the white river when I was his age. Anybody got pictures of tiger trout caught yet Clint Gaston? Thats a bucket list trout.

White river trout!

That’s a stud!

Tina Chwalinski and Carrie Ballinger Porter we should just all move closer to the trout.

Last time I fished on the White, there was so much water coming over the dam you couldn't get anywhere near it. Our guide would run us up and float back down, then run us back up

Nice catch!

Wow that's a big rainbow

Nice catch!

Good job

I am saving up for an Arkansas boat. I fell in love with the one we rented while there last month. I can’t wait to hit the tail waters of dams on the east coast and make many more trips to Gaston's White River Resort

Doug Smittle

Do you know what he caught it on?

You still taking reservations?

We love watching all aircraft, but it’s especially cool to see a Stearman buzzing around!

It didn’t take very long for those tiger trout to end up on a hook! This is one of the 6 types of trout you can catch on the White River right now.

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.
