I am a full time guide who has lived and guided here on the White & North Fork rivers since 1994. I began coming here with my family in 1959 and was eventually fortunate to move here after retirement and started guiding. Linger’s Giude Service & Fishing Lodge was started six years ago and it has turned out to be much more than we had ever dreamed.

Trout Biting Like Crazy!

The trout are biting like crazy and virtually no fisher people to punish them. The constant low water for the last couple of months have those bad boys loaded up in certain parts of the river
and makes it a lot easier to find them. Barring some days when fish just don’t bite we have been having our way with them. The big fish don’t bite real well on low water but there are a lot of fish biting and that keeps you busy & interested!! This group of Tennessee boys came for the 13th year in a row and had a hell of a time on the White River……..Look into the Winter or next year and book a trip to come enjoy the Arkansas Ozarks!! LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE is here to show you a GOOD TIME!!

A Year Later

Nancy finally got her deer back from the taxidermist…It took one year and the 2018 season starts next weekend. She will be defending her “big buck” title in camp so here we go again!!……. How about a winter trip to linger’s guide service & fishing lodge?? The fish bite the same all year so why not put a little extra fun in your life!!

Trout Biting As Good As You Ever Want

F I S H O N !!! Just because school is back in session and football Is being played doesn’t mean the fish quit biting!!

I HAVE ESCAPED!!

I HAVE ESCAPED!! My Fall and late Summer have gone very well however my lower back has continued to deteriorate. After Deer Season I decided to opt for surgery expecting a few days of down time and a little rehab. November 20th I went under the knife and as my luck sort of ran out. Horrible results….pain beyond description and two full weeks in acute rehab not being able to move. I have been bound to home for rehab the past 10 days with the future uncertain. I AM DEFINITELY BETTER being able to get around with a cane and a walker but there is plenty of room for improvement!!

For you long-time customers and for those of you just giving some thought to coming to Arkansas….COME ON DOWN. I have already had more bookings for this coming Spring than I have and have more pending. I will be good to go by the time you get here and am looking forward to seeing you……PLEASE put LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO DO IN 2018 and contact me to get the dates you want for your group. sorry for the absence….I will do my best to stray in touch!!
