There is nothing like a day on the river. Fresh air, sunshine, and a boat gently flowing along with the current all set the stage for some serious relaxation. Add in a professional fishing guide to show you how to catch a limit of trout and you have the makings of a day you won't soon forget. At Blue Heron you can schedule a guided fishing trip any time of year. The fishing never stops on the world-famous White River. Come see why!
Blue Heron Campground has some amazing shoreline to fish from, but for those who want to venture out further a guided fishing trip is the way to go. Guided trips include all bait and tackle, so you can leave your gear at home! Be sure to bring your fishing license, drinks, snacks, and a customary tip for your guide. Note: for fly-fishing trips and lure fishing the guide will supply a certain amount of flies and lures. Those customers who have a tendency to lose expensive tackle (i.e. by repeatedly catching trees) will be expected to compensate the guide to replace the lost equipment.
Not interested in fishing, but still want to get out on the water to see nature up close? We offer a two hour river excursion that will take you up and down the waters of the World Famous White River. You will experience some of the most beautiful scenery in the Ozarks while soaking in some fresh Ozark Mountain Air.
Because White River waters are constantly fluctuating, it is very important to stay alert to changes in the water. Water can rise very quickly and become a hazard to anyone who has chosen to venture away from the bank. Your guide will know what the water generation is forecasted to be like and ensure you are kept safe.
Call or email us to arrange a guided trip with a professional licensed guide on the White River.
