We had a great two days on the river with the Cotter Trout Dock team. What a staff of friendly people! Great fishing! Wonderful camping (made easy)! Super food! Our guides put us on rainbows, browns, small mouth, large mouth and more.

The dock is on the white river and a beautiful place. It was so refreshing to spend a day on the river catching trout. The people were so nice and helpful at the dock. I would go back there again.

We hired two boats and two guides. Floated from Cotter to the White Buffalo takeout just North of the confluence with the Buffalo River. Both guides knew the river and where to find 'em. All five of us each caught over 30 rainbows and browns and had the time of our lives. The shore lunch was a feast. Highly recommended... More

Everything for camping - wall tents, cots, sleeping bags, linens, campfire and a lot more is all provided by us and set-up and taken-down by the guides and cooks. No work for you to do except explore the island and continue fishing at camp if you want to. Some of the best trout fishing in America. Catching is guaranteed!
