Magoo,

Ive spent very little time on that area of the white, at the white buffalo which is a bit down stream I think.

The main memory I took away was dodging the rocks that I thought were gonna impact the lower unit, but were likely 20 feet deep, that deep clear water really screwed with me!

well I thought abuot them maybe fitting Doc too, but he already has some boots, and I figure Stuckin needs them more.

not to mention it sounds like he already rides more than Doc.

speaking of fishing..

My dream trip, take a few canoes, or flatbottoms.

down the last section of the Buffalo.

the small mouth fishing ( at least 20 years ago) was great, huge fish!

and there are no services for miles and miles, so you are on your own, from say Rush to the white river confluence, and the nearest take out is upstream.. so you have to time your arrival witht eh generation schedule, or have outboard!

and its all through national forest.

I figure it would be 2, maybe 3 days of river bank camping, and fishing.

the biggest problem would be figuring out how to pack enough beer and ice.

Well that and dragging the canoes through all the areas where there's no water.

you have to go when there is water dorkus!


its like the upper section of the Kings, its incredible, but you have to find the proper season, and the proper water flow.

cant just decide to go and take off... its not always a doable thing, which to me makes it more "speshul"

Kinda like you Albie.

Matt,
I've got a 17' canoe, which will hold all the camping supplies for a week on the river. May have to drink beer European style (room temp) though. Can't keep ice too long out there.
If you stick close to the bank you can paddle from the mouth of the Buffalo to Buffalo City fairly easy. If a river boat is preferred I can get my hands on one to use.

You gotta go in the springtime. That's about the only time you can guaranty that there will be water in the Buffalo.

While the wife and I were in Crested Butte this past Sept., and thinking in terms of our "next Colorado vacation", we priced a guided day of trout fishing w/all needed supplies. Was going to be about $500 for a day, as I recall.

However, trout fishing north Arkansas in the off-season could be as much fun!

V-man
There are lots of guide services, mostly they will fish you from a boat and provide anything you need. Lots will rent you a boat and just send you out. The river fluctuates dramatically when they crank up generators, and experience is essential, IMO. Gastons is the biggest float service, and they are just below the dam. One of the few that run season-long.

There are fewer that rent waders and all. With both it is important to get someone with experience. The newer guys are mostly hunting $ more than repeat customers. If you want guided fly fishing, and a very clean place to stay (woman friendly-Albie liked it), I highly recommend Dale Fulton's Blue Ribbon Lodge. He grew up here and at one time guided and owned fly shops in both West Yellowstone and Mountain Home. Now he and his wife just run the lodge north of Hwy 412 on Denton Ferry Road. I've known him for >25 years, and always stay there, even when not fly fishing.

Really, it is easy enough to just go over there and throw a spinner into moving water. But, call Dale, he can put you on a reputable wading guide, but his leanings are to fly fishing, of course. Definitely stay there, the best for a quiet retreat. Tell him Tim recommended him, and promise not to burn down the lodge.
