The White river system is situated in the Northern part of the state of Arkansas, in the Ozark Mountains area. Arkansas is considered to be the natural state and that is very true. It is very rural, contains great resources for both hunting and fishing. Rivers, streams and lakes contain both cold and warm water species. There is never a day you cannot go fishing. It is the White River that draws fly fisherman from all over the USA. The White River system holds fame for the world record Brown trout of 40.4ozs and many other trophies in the high 20 to 30 lb range.
Four species of trout are found in the river: Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brook trout. All methods of fly fishing will catch fish on this river system, dry fly, nymph, streamer, emerger and wet fly. The best overall seasonal periods are between April and the End of November. We fish both from boats on float trips and wade fishing. There is no trout system in the entire EEC that is even close to this fishery.
I have some 90 miles of water to fish on the White River. This provides for great access and long float trips, as much as 10 miles or more on some days. Guide trips are fully inclusive for the day with use of all equipment and of course the flies to catch the fish with. Included for the day is a lunch and drinks.
There are a number of options from Motels to full board, inclusive of breakfast and evening dinner. That will be arranged according to your requirements. The costs are overall low by comparison to many other fishing destinations.
We will arrange to pick you up at Springfield airport Missouri and return you when you depart. In this case, you would not need to rent a car. You may, of course, rent a vehicle if you so choose. The costs here are not that high. Legal requirements for fishing are an Arkansas state license and a trout stamp.
Just contact me via e-mail with your interests. How many persons, what period of time you wish to fish, the number of days, the accommodation type you would like, etc. I will respond to you with a rate for your trip. Look forward to see you here in Arkansas!
