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 the monster brown that Ayres Fuqua caught while on a father/son trip! This fish weighed 14.8lbs and was caught and released on 6lb test. Our guide, Lynn Hicks, put him in the right place at the right time.

Nice fish.

That young man handled that fish like a champ

Nice! What did they catch him on?

I love seeing catch and release. My boy always asks me why I release. I always say “he will be bigger next time”.

Big boy.

ohboyeee

Jantzen Taylor Slaughter

Congratulations

Nice!!!

Hamilton Bell biggun

Awesome fish and we love your place

Aaron Drier

Jill Thiel Lockard we have to plan a trip

Great job

Man don’t insult the fish. Hold it normal. It’s amazing! Why hold it out closer like it’s 3 pounds, appearing to be 10.

Betty Fletcher Martin

Wow. Congrats

My dream!!!

forget the dinner specials! what kind of pie is that?! 🤣

Yep. Who needs dinner?

I agree

At Gaston's one thing that always amazes us is how many families return year after year. Whether you are starting a new tradition or preserving an old one, there is something special about the White River. Skip some stones, catch some trout, explore in a riverboat, or just kick back and take it all in. One thing is certain, at Gaston's you can make memories while still reliving your old ones. #Gastons #PreservingTradition ... See MoreSee Less

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.
