Our family has stayed here off and on over the years. My wife and I decided to go to the white river for our 25th anniversary. We stayed at a different location... for the privacy, but did rent a boat from Julie and Steve.

These folks have to be some of the nicest most consistent people we have had the pleasure to do business with in the area.

Beyond helpful in every aspect of the word! Julie with her smile and helpful tips for fishing and navigating the river and Steves knowledge and patience is second to none!

If you want a great experience, please give these folks an opportunity to earn your business. You won't be disappointed!

Thank you Julie and Steve for making our anniversary a memorable one! We will be back soon to see you both!

I've been visiting here for many years and I highly recommend His Place to anyone wanting to experience White River Trout fishing! The owners are super friendly and more than willing to help you have a memorable experience. Take a trip there just once and I know you'll be "Hooked"! :-)

Best place on the White river to fish out of. That's my 28 lb, 35" brown trout monster I caught a few years ago. Julie is the best hostess you will ever find!

Enjoyed our stay. Cabin was very clean and contained everything you could need. I had to adjust our cabin needs at the last minute and appreciated your help. We will be back and would recommend to all.

We had such a wonderful time! The room was super clean, and I loved the special touches in the room too--a welcome card and a bag of cookies. This was one of th...e most relaxing places I have ever been to. This is truly a one-of-a-kind place and was run perfectly; the owners were helpful from fishing to finding food. We can't wait to come back! See More

This is a little bit of heaven on earth. The Raines are the sweetest folks, always striving to please. Chastity, who cleans accommodations and campsites, i...s the best. Highly recommend this campsite. Private and quiet with all the amenities. Will be heading back every chance I get. Caught 11 rainbows first day and 15 the second day at Turkey Island. See More

We spent three days there and had a great time. Julie's hospitality is top notch. The accommodations are clean and almost too good for fishermen. A+++++

Hey, everyone! Guess what???

For the FIRST TIME SINCE 2011, the Cotter Annual Trout Tournament is once again OPEN TO ALL MAKES/MODELS OF BOATS!!!


This is great news for those of you who haven't participated since 2011 because of the former restriction to Shawnee/Supreme boats.

It almost didn't happen at all this year, which is why the announcement is so late. A BIG THANKS to everyone at the Cotter / Gassville Chamber for getting it going again! There are some changes, see the info below, along with the application form and the rules.

Make your lodging reservations NOW if you want to be in the tournament, and we'll get another TEAM HIS PLACE RESORT going!!! BECAUSE OUR FISHERMEN ARE BETTER!!!


2017 Annual Trout Tournament - Open Invitational


It’s once again time to gear up for the 2017 Cotter-Gassville Chamber of Commerce White River Open Trout Tournament. This year’s tournament will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the Big Spring Park in Cotter, Arkansas. We are anticipating a large turn-out for this tournament and are limited to the first 125 teams.

This year’s tournament is open to any type or make of boat. The entry fee is $100.00 per team and an optional $25.00 is required for the Big Fish Pot. In addition to entry into the tournament, your fee buys you two tickets for the meal and two tickets for the door prizes. Winning payout is based on number of teams entered and the Big Fish Pot is 100% payout.

Major changes for the 2017 tournament are as follows:

1) There will not be a boat draw as in previous years.

2) Big Fish Pot winners big fish weight will be deducted from the team’s total placement weight.

3) There will be no fly fishing only bonus.

And here's Tom L., on his first trip Trout Fishing on the White River at His Place Resort... Now, I will say, this man is a very proficient, avid, fisherman to begin with. But never having trout fished before, he had some amazing success... We'll let him tell you himself... check it out!

Tom L. talks about his first trout fishing experience on the White River at his place Resort

Francis Wells is back! and better than ever! She is, without reservation, our all-time MOST awesome guest EVER!!! Now, I love you all, you know this... but Francis wears the White River Crown!!! Check her out!

World famous , ( well maybe White River famous, anyway) Francis Wells is back on the White River again! Just as gorgeous as ever... Trout beware!

And another beautiful photo... This one was caught on our sister Creek on the North Fork... The water was up a little bit that morning here on the White River and Tim L. decided to go over there to see what he could do... :-)
(for those of you that don't know, the North Fork is only about a twenty-minute drive from here.)

And this is how it's done right off the boat dock at his place Resort! This fish was released unharmed... :-) 25 inches Kama 15.5 inches girth. Way to go, Robert W 3rd!

Kids going back to school in this area already... y'all need to come on out! Low water, at least most mornings (been coming up later in the day for the most part) is conducive to wade fishing for those that love it that way! Here's an article about attractors I thought you might find interesting...…/4-must-have-attractor-fli…/…

Regardless of what the trout are thinking, anglers expecting success need a basic variety of such attractor flies and knowledge of how to fishing them.
