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!!

OBABIKON LAKE

Six of us traveled north of the border to Ontario to enjoy the “Toothy Critters” that lurk in the cold waters of OBABIKON LAKE!Obabikon Bay Lodge is on the north portion of LAKE OF THE WOODS and is close to the “Narrows” where you sneak through to get to Obabikon Lake. Fun was had by all and can only send a portion of the pictures of all the fish we caught. Pike, Walleyes, Smallmouth, Largemouth, Yellow Perch….we caught them all and ate them all each day at shore lunch prepared by our very qualified Indian Guides. What fun it is to go there each year and probably two times this year….you are welcome to go with us and enjoy the fun north of the border….you will be glad you did!! Nancy and I try to have fun here at Linger’s Guide Service……you only go this way one time…you just as well try to enjoy it!!

Turkey Hunt

I have to brag a little….Our 10-year-old grandson shot a 22-pound turkey with a 9.5-inch beard during Youth season. It was his first shot with a shotgun! Everyone was happy. I think I may have been happier than him!!

Due to one group needs to change their dates I have the last two weekends in April open!! Get together with your group/family/friends and book a fun trip to LINGERS GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE…..Water levels are great and the fish biting very well…..spinning, fly rod your choice….fishing has been great!

HAPPY 2017

img_2665HAPPY 2017 TO ALL YOU FINE FOLKS AND HOPE YOUR NEW YEAR IS GETTING OFF TO A GOOD START. Things here on the White River are cold and slow for the moment. After the holidays the temps dropped, and we are in a deep freeze for the next few days. I have caught trout in 2017, so I know they are still there and ready to provide fun for all fishermen!! We have been spending time at our hunting camp with deer season finally coming to a close January 15th.

I will have a few more days of bow hunting left to get that last deer of the year!One thing for sure is there is still plenty to do here in Arkansas. TROUT FISHING is great all year long…and there are some good days to have BASS fishing on Norfork Lake. I am going to promote that more this year for those of you who accomplished fishermen or those who want to learn how to catch BASS!!

Have a good week and get started now making plans to visit LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE

FISHING/RIVER UPDATE

IMG_2191As of this moment, Bull Shoals is still 15 feet high and Norfork is 7 feet high.The Corp is running all 8 generators on Bull and 2 generators on Norfork 24 hours a day plus 8 and 2 over flow gates. At this

The Corp is running all 8 generators on Bull and 2 generators on Norfork 24 hours a day plus 8 and 2 over flow gates. At this rate, Norfork will be at power pool in about 12 days and Bull in about 15 days providing they keep the same schedule and we get no more rain.

TROUT are biting just a little bit with the sluggish results blamed on just too much volume of water.

As soon as it gets to normal flow and normal discharge rates…LOOK OUT!! Within a couple of weeks, things should be just fine. The picture of the nice Cutthroat came at the mouth of the creek at Mcclellands and took the reliable RAPALA! Get out your calendar and book a trip to Lingers Guide Service & Fishing Lodge for March to get the season kicked off!! You will be glad you did!
