Packing for a few days of trout fishing out of Gaston’s Resort www.gastons.com on Arkansas’ White River, where I’ll be joining some old friends, making some new ones and, hopefully, landing a few browns like the one pictured below that agreed to have its photo taken with my friend Bill Moore a couple of years ago.
Scheduled to arrive Monday (and maybe some late afternoon fishing), depart Thursday. The weatherman is promising mild temperatures and only a slight chance of rain. No matter. I’ve learned from experience: Always pack rain gear.
Rain or shine, the White is one of the best tailwater trout rivers in the country, and the folks at Gaston’s welcome you like family.
If you’re unfamiliar with the White and its phenomenal trout fishing; plan a visit. You won’t be sorry. If you need a place to HQ this fishing junket, plan on Gaston’s. You won’t be sorry about that, either. They know the river and their guides are some of the best I’ve worked with. Beyond that, though, it’s simply a friendly, decent place. Families welcome. Fishermen, too.
