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.

It’s always the ladies who end up catching the big fish! This brown measured in at 25” and was caught with our guide, Lynn Hicks.

If you are looking to book a fishing trip, our guides will make sure that you have a memorable time on the river. Fall is the perfect season to enjoy our famous shore lunch.

Awesome job

Nice brown!

Love Gaston’s!

Awesome

I have been in the navy for 24 years and traveled the world several times over......Gaston's is the closest to heaven on earth as i have ever been to.

Well done!!!

Was down there for three days good time.

I had such a wonderful time at Gaston’s earlier this week! So happy that I made the Facebook page with my whopper of a fish. I really enjoyed out fishing the 16 guys in my group including my husband all thanks to the best guide ever Mr. Lynn

Gaston's White River Resort, can any of your retail shop items be ordered online?

The Apache Helicopters leaving AND Justin Moore while filming one of his music videos! I love the fog over the river (usually as we first arrive to check into our cabin), all the hummingbirds eating, seeing all the birds at the beginning of the nature walks. Looking at all the antiques in the resaurant restaurant area. Seeing all the fish mounts in the reception area and unique items in the gift shop. Actually everything there is memorable. See y’all soon

Merlin sneaking in the restaurant with 10 National Guardsmen posing as their service dog. I have so many wonderful memories staying at Gastons.

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.
