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.

Great half day of fishing. Debbie was easy to work with to book and arrange trip. Paul was an excellent guide. Caught our limit and released some. Would love to come back to see flowering trees in spring or fall for turning leaves along the river. Saw an eagle, herons,

We rented a place on the White River for a week. We watched lots of folks fishing. I am not much of a fisherman, and my wife has never been. But we saw folks catching fish so we wanted to try. The owner of our rental property recommended this place, and it had great reviews, so

Debbie and her team are wonderful people! They go out of there way to make the experience something special. Fishing is amazing as is the scenery! It was our first time fishing the White River and it did not disappoint. I would highly recommend CTD to anyone!

This was my second time fishing with The Cotter Trout Dock. I came here a few years ago and had an amazing time. My favorite part was the shore lunch and I’ve been wanting to take my wife here mostly just so she could experience it as well. We booked a couple of months out with

What a great time!! Can't say enough good things about the management, guides, and fishing. Our experience was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guide, Jacob, put us on the fish and his tips were spot on. Here's to hoping we can do this again!
