You'll enjoy White River trout fishing from the comfort and safety of a wide river john boat with padded seats.

FAQ about Trout Fishing Guide Service at His Place Resort (Spin Fishing)

  • The first thing folks want to know is, "Where does the guide take us on our trout fishing trip?" That depends; Extremely low water conditions or the logistics involved with larger group trips sometimes dictate specific put-in and take-out points, however, our general motto is, "Let the Trout Guide Decide." We know this ensures the best trout fishing. Since we're in a such a productive stretch of the White River, there's generally no need to travel far...
  • What do guided fishing trips include? Guided Spin Fishing trips include the trout guide, boat/motor, rods/reels, hooks, sinkers, live bait and/or scented bait products, soda & water. Lunch can be added to either half day or full day trips. We do a very nice lunch, but give you a choice as so many requested. Typical lunch includes sandwiches of Smoked Turkey w/ Sundried tomato and Provolone cheese on Ciabatta rolls, lettuce & tomato on the side, baked beans & potato salad, & cheesecake for dessert. (When it’s cold - hot soup & coffee instead of baked beans and potato salad.) We will be happy to try and accommodate special dietary requirements; just give us a call and let us know how we can better serve you!
  • For larger groups, shore lunches on your trout fishing trip can be provided for an additional charge, where you'll eat BLT's while your catch of the day is frying up, along with hushpuppies, potatoes and dessert. Either way, you'll have a full belly! Fishing licenses / trout stamps and lures are not included.
  • What do you need to bring on your guided trout fishing trip? Hats, polarized sunglasses (so you can see those trout in the river), sunscreen, rain gear (just in case!), camera, and appropriate clothing. Even in warmer weather, the mornings can be cool; bring a light jacket.
  • Bring your own light or ultra-light spinning rods/reels if you prefer, but those are provided. We use 4 to 6 lb. low visibility green line, as that color seems to be the least visible to the trout.
  • What if it's raining on the day of our trout fishing trip? We fish in the rain, because the trout are already wet! Of course, if there's lightning, we wait to go out. If lightning starts while you're already fishing, you'll come in for awhile to wait. There is almost never lightning or rain all day long, and you'll be able to get in a good amount of trout time.
  • Additionally, since we're only 15 miles down river from the Bull Shoals Dam, and 12 & 17 miles respectively above Crooked Creek & the Buffalo River, our stretch of the White River typically doesn't get too muddy, and clears pretty quickly.

 


Guided Trout Fly Fishing Trips

Guided Trout Fishing Service - Fly Fishing on the White River

Taking a guided fly fishing trip on the White River is a great way to get the most out of your time here. Whether you're a beginner that has never picked up a fly rod, a seasoned pro that just needs to be put on fish, or somewhere in between, we have the guides that will help you have the most productive and fun day possible.

Our fly fishing guides have many seasons of experience on the White River, and they know how to fish it no matter what the water's doing. They're out all the time, so they'll know exactly what fly to put on for you and where to go for those trout.

Many of our guests prefer to wade fish if possible, and that's fine. Others, for various reasons, prefer to fly fish from a boat. That's fine, too. Just let us know what your needs and desires are, and we'll do our best to make it happen.

FAQ about Fly Fishing Guide Service on the White River

  • People often ask, "What is fly fishing on the White River like compared to other places?" That is an excellent question with more than one answer! For those of you that fish small streams out west for example, the first thing that will strike you is the size of the trout. Our Rainbow trout are stocked larger in size than the majority of "big fish" you'll find out west in small streams. The next thing you'll notice is the actual size of the White River itself. It's a larger fishery than many of you have seen, even at low-flow conditions, when you can walk back and forth across much of the river... just more room to hold trout! and a lot more places to wade when the dam generation is low, too.
  • When the dam is generating, higher flows make the White River similar in size to the average summertime flow on the Kootenai River in Montana, if you're familiar with that, not unlike many larger trout fisheries where all the fishing is done from drift boats. However, as opposed to using drift boats, most fly fishing guides in this area use flat-bottomed river john boats. They are much better suited to all water conditions here, allow you to move back up river (did you miss that trout the first time by???), their drift is not as affected by wind, and they're overall just much easier to maneuver, allowing the guide to concentrate more on you and less on the boat.
  • "What's the water going to be doing when I come?" We've dedicated a separate page to answer that question for you -- click here.
  • The next thing folks typically want to know is, "Where does the guide go?" That depends on several things, including water levels/conditions, and what your desires are. Once again, as with our spin fishing trips, our general motto is, "Let the Guide Decide." We feel it's best to give the guide the freedom to decide where to take you, ensuring the best fishing possible. Sometimes they'll fish here, sometimes they'll want to start at another public access, and sometimes you'll fish a couple of places. You may need to be prepared to follow the guide in your own vehicle if necessary.
  • The next logical question is, "Do I need waders?" Bring them if you have them. If the water is low, and assuming that you want to, yes, you'll be able to wade. If the water is up, then you'll fish from a boat. Our guides have seen plenty of both conditions, so they'll be prepared either way. Also keep in mind that the water is cold, even in the summertime. Very few people are able to tolerate "wet-wading" (wading without waders). (Please note: You do not have to wade if you don't want to, or if you have physical limitations that would prevent you from it. Please be sure to tell us when you book your trip about any of these situations so we can serve you better.)
  • What do the trips include? Guided Fly Fishing trips include the guide, boat/motor, fly rods/reels, flies, leader, tippet, soda & water. Fishing licenses / trout stamps and waders/boots are not included. Lunch can be added to either half day or full day trips. We do a very nice lunch, but give you a choice as so many requested. Typical lunch includes sandwiches of Smoked Turkey w/ Sundried tomato and Provolone cheese on Ciabatta rolls, lettuce & tomato on the side, baked beans & potato salad, & cheesecake for dessert. (When it’s cold - hot soup & coffee instead of baked beans and potato salad.) We will be happy to try and accommodate special dietary requirements; just give us a call and let us know how we can better serve you!
  • What do you need to bring on a guided fly fishing trip? Waders/boots, hats, polarized sunglasses (so you can see down into the water), sunscreen, rain gear (just in case!), camera, and appropriate clothing. Even in warmer weather, the mornings can be pretty cool, so you may need a light jacket in the morning, but by the afternoon, you may be comfortable in short sleeves. You can bring your own 5 or 6 wt. fly rods and reels if you prefer, but those are provided if you don't have them, or just prefer not to bring them.
