The White River near Mountain Home, AR

Guide Miles Riley

Solo trip to  fish the White river. Wadeable water all day. I fished one of my favorite spots, Rim Shoal in the morning and only had three strikes.  After lunch I headed for Wildcat Shoal and tore them up on soft hackles, including a nice 16 -18” brown and a rainbow almost that big. And there wasn’t another angler in sight all afternoon!

Fished with guide Miles Riley all day. We motored up to Buffalo Shoal where we had the area all to ourselves and I caught many rainbows, a few browns, and even a couple of smallmouth bass. Fly of the day was a #12 olive/black woollybugger.
