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.
Year end success was a welcome treat. A group of us headed to our hunting lease in southern Missouri for the last week of deer season. It is a “special methods” season where you can fill any leftover firearms tag with a muzzle loader, bow, cross bow or center fire pistol.
We were there for a few days to end the season and what fun we had. We ended up killing six deer (missed two more), two Turkeys and two armadillos. Spending time at deer camp this time of year was an absolute bonus and fun was had by all!
Going back in two weeks to end Bow Deer & Turkey season then it will be back to fishing the White River and Norfork Lake. Come enjoy some of the fun we have here AT lINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE….We can customize your trip so you can enjoy exactly what you want to do. Just let me know and we can work it out!!
What a farewell trip!! Bob Stevenson and his son Alex were just here for a few days of fun, fishing and relaxation. Alex is leaving for the Army in two weeks and his Dad has been doing a few special things with him prior to his departure. We have all deer hunted together several times but Alex had never fished and not been introduced to the Arkansas Ozarks. I guarantee you he is hooked now and will be returning at his first opportunity. The trip provided plenty of personal time for Father/Son including Alex saving his Dad when he fell out of the boat in water well over his head. It was exciting for a few minutes until we got control of the problem but concern soon turned to laughter when finally returning to the lodge for adult beverages.Come enjoy the fun at Lingers Guide Service and Fishing Lodge but I highly recommend staying in the boat!!
Each day I stroll on the back porch or gaze through my large picture window, I am so amazed at the scene of the White River in all of its spectacular beauty. The winter wonderland scene today is another blessing I have to share with you.
