The One That Got Away

Everybody that trout fishes knows it takes more than just hooking a big one to be able to say you brought it in and caught it...
Here is an actual e-mail from a recent fisherman about an elusive big brown:


I forgot to mention, last Friday my 84 yr old dad hooked a 30 inch brown trout (had to have gone 18-20 lbs) 10 yards off your bank, down by your dirt boat ramp, maybe 20 yards upstream of the rock breakwater. We kept the brown in calm water, not wanting him to get out into the faster moving water....I was afraid of getting the line cut by the boat motor prop....The fish would take line, then my dad would retrieve most of it, a real back and forth battle....My dad fought it for 15 minutes before the hook came loose from the brown's mouth. Didn't break the 6 lb test or lose the black 1/8 oz jig (PJ's Jigs - the only bait we use - she lives in Fayetteville). It was the most exciting 15 mintes of our lives....would have bested my 9 lb 26 in long brown I caught just below the dam in 1994.


Something to tell your customers....he's still out there....the brown, not my dad...but we'll be back in May....

Catch & Release

Posted by Picasa

We recently had a visit from Jim Tingey, angler, painter, conservationist and owner of Catch & Release Artwork; an alternate to the mount and photo method of commemorating that special catch. This was just one of the browns he caught and released while fishing our stretch of the river. If you are considering a great way to commemorate a young person's first fish or make a special gift for your favorite angler, visit catchandreleaseartwork.com.

Logan's Brown Trout


Here is a picture of 9 year old Logan and his dad with the 26" brown trout that Logan caught and released yesterday morning. Logan got a pin and a certificate from the White and North Fork Rivers Outfitters Association.

How's the Fishing?


Ask this father and son team who landed this 8 lb. 27" brown trout this morning from the shore. This beauty was caught with corn and took 30 minutes to net.

Adam's Brown Trout


Just another example of that possible "fish of a lifetime" that people are catching on the river right outside our resort.

6/23/08 Eamon's Brown



(As a mom, I get bragging rights...)

My son caught this 26", 5.5 lb. brown yesterday in high water with a purple iridescent shad rap.

Just more proof that the fish are out there--

HIGH WATER? NO PROBLEM!







Although some guests are concerned about the amount of rain we've had this spring, the fishing has been great anyway. These four browns were caught this weekend with 8 generators running.

Worth the Trip!

After braving the icy roads to get here from Mississippi, this happy fisherman was rewarded with this 22" brown trout. He caught it within hours of his arrival from the bank just outside the office!
