Fishing the Famous White River
paper texture
Located in Cotter, Arkansas the White River Inn offers all-inclusive, luxury accommodations on the banks of one of the South’s premier blue ribbon trout rivers. The lodge welcomes anglers from all over the world to experience trophy trout fishing on the White River in a laid-back atmosphere. Arkansas’ White River is fabled in many fly fishing circles, continuously producing some of America’s largest brown trout on the fly in a fishery that is accessible year-round.

Lodging Details
The 8500-square-foot western red cedar lodge stands firmly on the edge of a 300-foot bluff high above the White River. Guests describe the views from the back deck as breathtaking. Bald eagles, hawks, and ospreys glide by at eye level, almost close enough to touch, while a multitude of hummingbirds and songbirds gather at the deck’s feeders daily — The deck is a birdwatcher’s paradise! By design, the beautiful décor and amenities put the White River Inn in a class of its own. But the White River itself is reason enough to travel here. The fish count per mile is incredible, bordering on unbelievable, with four species of trout available. But the huge brown trout is what really brings fishermen to the White River with an overwhelming number of guests catching their personal best brown trout during their stay. Fly fishing just doesn’t get any better, and the beautiful Ozark scenery is in a league of its own.

Food and Beverages
Equally important as the fishing and the scenery is the experience at the lodge. This is an all-inclusive experience, including five-star, home-cooked meals from scratch each day. Anglers will enjoy a fully prepared hot breakfast and dinner, with lunch being served on the water. When anglers return to the lodge after a day of fishing, appetizers, snacks, drinks, and a fabulous dinner will be served by the hosts or an independent chef. Depending on the season, lunches will either be hot or cold. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages are provided as well. The White River Inn can accommodate any dietary restrictions and preferences by making arrangements beforehand. They strive for their guests to remember the dining experience as much as the fishing.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Besides the relaxing accommodations at the White River Inn, Cotter offers numerous area hikes, scenic drives, biking trails, and parks. Nearby are three golf courses set among the Ozarks. Cotter and Gassville offer breweries, antiquing, shopping, art and photo galleries, and great local food options that are close by. The lodge is within driving to Branson and Springfield, Missouri, and everything those areas have to offer.

Internet / Communications
Wi-Fi access is available in the lodge, and they do have ample cell service throughout the property.
