This is one of the great benefits of living on the WHITE RIVER!! The temps turned out great so Nancy and I had a short window of hitting the river for a couple of hours.
Nancy threw the RAPALA and I tossed my favorite ROGUE! She caught the most fish but I got down in the Bluff Hole and snatched a pretty nice BROWN to make our little excursion worthwhile!!

The Father/Son team from Missouri caught 75 fish and proved they knew what they were doing!! The bonus was that the Father and I have known each other for 70 years but had not been together for 35 years or so!! We had a lot of catching up to do. I am sure the Son got a little bored with the Old Man talk, but I certainly enjoyed it! Just an example how fishing and the great outdoors can bring people together.

Just Keep Casting

SOMETIMES THEY ARE SMALL AND SOMETIMES THEY ARE LARGE!! Just keep casting! The Ferannto Boys had a good time on the White & Norfork rivers. The fish were a little larger on the Norfork but you can’t get there until after 1 p.m. or so due to the current generation schedule….Come to the White River and enjoy some of this great weather and water conditions we are having!!
