World Class Fishing Where Two Great Rivers Meet
Our 3/4 mile of White River frontage at the mouth of the Buffalo River provides the best diversified fishing on the river.
We have both gravel and rock shoals for bank and wade fishing as well as plenty of deep water to drift fish from a boat. We have a fairly complete bait and tackle shop with competitive prices. You can purchase your fishing license and trout permit here.
Legendary Trout and Smallmouth Bass Fishing
There is no fishing season in Arkansas -- fishing is great all year! The White Buffalo Resort has the best diversified fishing on the rivers.
The Legendary White River -- World Class Trout Fishing
The White River is famous for it's trophy trout. It is a legitimate world class trout river having accounted for brown trout in the 40 pound class.
Fly-fishing doesn't get any better than at the White Buffalo. 1/2 mile above the resort is the longest rock shoal on the White River and below it is a gravel bar that keeps on going for several miles.
