White River

When one thinks of the White River, several things come to mind -- world famous trout fishing, magnificent bluffs and cold, clear water, ideal riffles and shoals full of rainbows, browns, cutthroat and brook trout plus all the folklore that goes along with its Ozarks Region. Fly fishers and spin fishers alike anticipate traveling to its waters each year in hopes of hooking a trophy brown trout. Some areas, like Wildcats Shoals, are almost impassible. This is a major reason why there are so many fishing guides on the White River.
