The segment between Eureka Springs and Gateway, Arkansas, stands out, regularly stocked with rainbow trout and brown trout, thriving in the river’s cool, clear waters, creating an ideal habitat for these prized species.
A pivotal factor contributing to the White River’s status as a fly fishing mecca is the remarkable size of its trout.

The challenge and thrill of fly fishing for these trophy-sized trout add an extra layer of excitement for fishing enthusiasts.
Further enhancing its appeal, the White River offers diverse fishing environments. Anglers can opt for boat fishing, casting their flies while drifting along the river’s currents, or choose shoreline fishing or wading into the river. This variety caters to different preferences and skill levels, ensuring a rewarding experience for all who venture into these waters.
The consistent stocking of rainbow and brown trout throughout the year ensures that the fly fishing season on the White River near our cabin extends year-round, providing ample opportunities for anglers to indulge in their favorite pastime, regardless of the season.
