    Albie, my nephew Greg and I spent a few days over near Cotter on the White River. The water was down the whole time, and the weather and fishing were super. We ate pretty well (venison stew, brisket, ribeyes, leg o lamb, burgers and brats).

    Mike, I only use gold bladed rooster tails. Any color is fine, as long as it is yellow or black! The one in the picture is a "yellow coach dog", my favorite. The black glitter one also worked very well.

    Here is the HERE to 14 photos, with a few teasers below.

    Great scenery, and we had the river to ourselves, for the most part.

    We found Spike here at Shipps Ferry

    We got many browns and rainbows. None of any size (21.5" brown was the largest), but they were all fun.

    THANKS for the info, Magoo!

    That looks like a lot of fun... and I NEED "very, very easy fishing". Curious: Do you know if there any outfitters up that way that rent the whole smear (waders, rod/reel/etc) to a "Trout Fisherman For The Weekend" kind'a guy?

    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!

    Headed to Crested Butte week from Sat for our annual ski trip! Love that place. :clap

    We always do the guided boat fishing on the White River. I can get you the name of the outfit we use. I think all day for two people was around $280 all inclusive including lunch.

    Doc seems offline. I'm sure he'll want them to replace those duct taped wonders. They should be his size!

    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!

    hahaha
    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.

    :rofl

    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.
