Your Guides

Most of the fishing guides we reference have been fishing for an extended period of time. Fishing trips on the world famous White River are memorable. The guides are adaptable, knowledgable and have a down-to-earth laid back lifestyle. They are familiar with the river and know where all the "honey holes" are. They strive to introduce the great sport of fly fishing to whomever is interested.  From kids to adults and novice to advanced, all ages and abilities are welcome.  For those of you staying at our resort, inquire about a special discount that is available to you regarding all things fly fishing.  You can follow updates under "Water Levels" right here on our home page.

If you would like to enjoy a day floating on the river with your pals or just get acquainted to the sport in general with some simple casting instruction, Copper John's has you covered. If you have questions reqarding guides, fees, or gear, please contact us or 870-431-4454. We do not offer boats to rent. There are several places close by that offer boat rentals.They are a first come first serve basis as well.

Independent Guides 

  • Guides are not employees of Copper John's Resort. They are independent and have clients that call them directly and seperate from us. They maintain their own schedules and bookings. We have an agreement and they honor our discount based on a good ol' hand shake and a smile. Also you would want to pay them directly. Most of them prefer cash. They pay close attention to water generation schedules, as well as the weather radar. These details help them make an informed decision on the details of your fishing trip.
