About Cotter Trout Dock Guided Trout Fishing Tours
Arkansas Trout Fishing Outfitter Guide Service Guided Arkansas (one day) trout fishing trips on the White River and overnight (two day or more) fishing camp trips on our private 15 Acre island in the White River. Buffalo River wilderness area bass fishing trips and fishing camp trips. All trips are fully outfitted by us. Guides, fishing gear, camping gear (wall tents, cots, etc.), food and cooks are all included.On our one day (or half day) trips you don't just fish in the vicinity of our dock (called "fishing local"). On our usual "full day" trip, you fish 14 miles and on our usual "half day" you fish 10 miles of the White River. We then "pick you up" (along with your guides and Jon boats) and bring you back to our dock location in Cotter in our Suburbans and/or vans.Covering this larger portion of the river gives your guide the opportunity to get you to more "holes" (deeper areas) of the river where the guide knows the trout are likely to be. Catching 30 - 40 trout per day per person is not unusual. You can only keep five.If you prefer not to fish, we also do site-seeing trips the same way. Try our Shore Lunch of bacon and tomato sandwiches, black-eyed peas, hush-puppies, french fries and strawberry shortcake or banana pudding along with your freshly caught trout! This is all cooked by your guide along the riverbank over a charcoal fire.

Absolutely the best fishing trip with my wife! Our guide Dakota was awesome! We must have caught and released 40 Rainbows and kept our limit of 10. The last fish of the day was an 8lb Brown Trout that was 22 1/2 inches long just 1 1/2 inches too short! It was a memorable day! Debbie at Cotters was excellent! We highly recommend Cotter Trout Dock and Dakota for guided fishing tours!

If you want to catch fish, then booking a fishing trip with Cotter Trout Dock (CTD) is the way to do it. I try to fish the White River several times a year and I always book my trips with Debbie Gamble who owns/runs CTD and Eric Beecher as my guide. They are that good. Debbie always makes sure everything goes perfectly, and Eric always finds the fish. As rare as it might seem, there is not one negative comment I can make regarding CTD or Eric. If you want to catch some Trout on a pristine nationally recognized river, with a guide service with impeccable service, and a guide who is skillful, pleasant, funny, and hardworking, then book a trip with CTD today. Come'on, just do it. I will heading back again shortly.

My kids and I had a great half day on the White River. Our guide, Eric, was outstanding with the youngsters and helped get us on a lot of fish. Debbie helped take such great care of the kiddos and made sure we had a great time. She even took some pictures and shared a digital album with us.
