White River Arkansas Fishing Report

Looking Forward To The White River!

Looking Forward To The White River!

Its almost that time and really looking forward to spending January, February and March in Northern Arkansas on the banks of the White River chasing Big Browns! We have an ideal setup for guided river trips, lodging and meals on the river at the White River Trout Lodge.  Do have package pricing for single anglers and groups of two. With the separate levels of the lodge it is ideal for this. Can setup package price for any length and our most popular are 4 nights lodging and 3 days of fishing or 3 nights with 2 days of fishing. Can setup lodging where all get there own room.  This time of year is streamer time and hunting for Big Browns! Its most productive during high water or during power generation.  During low periods nymphing is extremely effective and often big numbers of trout. During low water periods night time mousing is what produces Big Browns.  Being from Northern Michigan night time just seems so right to chase trophy Browns all night. We provide all the gear, tackle and flies for our float trips along nice lunch on the river or at the lodge.  Any questions about cost and availability just…

Quick Trip To The White River

Quick Trip To The White River

For the first time I got to fish the White River in late July!  Trip down was to pickup a boat and only had a couple days to fish.  Was hoping for better hopper fishing but that has been a little late in coming and should be killer later in August and all September.  What we did was stripped streamers looking for Big Browns!  Did move some good one but most didn't commit. Our most productive patterns were Slop Mop 4" in olive and Circus Peanut in tan. Lots of nice rainbows were chasing and eating our streamers! Best bite was the midge bite.  We didn't do a lot of it but it sure produced lots of action.
