Letters from some of our
August 2015 - Miss Debbie--
Thanks so much for your
hospitality in setting this trip up. We have fished the White River over
a dozen times over the last 40 years with our families and friends, and
Paden ranks among the best guides we have ever had. He was very polite
and helpful, especially as we had to alter our game plan to deal with
the rain and lightening.
So we appreciated
this trip more so for his willingness to adapt to the conditions. (And
your lunch was great--the home grown tomatoes were a real hit.)
We will definitely be repeat customers for you. Best to you until we see you again.

Here is the big brown caught by Jack M. on May 8,
2008. The weight was 12# 12oz and ~31 inches long.
Thanks again for a great time - Mike was a great
guide! You have been sent 1 picture.

The camping, the fishing and the food--all just
awesome. Ron has everything so well organized.
The guys talk about the camp trip for weeks ahead of
time. It's a great employee award."

Company, Aurora, Missouri, brings a group of
friends, family, and employees camping each spring
and autumn. Jerry asked us to provide his
private cell phone number 417-461-6830 to anyone who
would like to speak to him personally for a
reference for fishing and camping at Cotter Trout
Dock. Thanks, Jerry!

Debbie and Ron,

Grandson Paul and I could not have asked for any

Give your cat a

Put Us On Fish All Day
Debbie and Ron
We had a
excellent time on the White River from the Cotter
Trout Dock again.
Even with the
inclement weather, we still caught many and great
As our guide,
Bobby Flippin kept us out of the wind and put us
on fish all day.
a great trip!
Caught About 100 Fish
Here are some
pics of our trip from a year and a half ago.
I hope you can use some of them on your web
page. We caught about 100 fish that day, but
did not take a single picture of one of
them. Please enjoy them as much as we
enjoyed our trip!
To Put Down In The Memory Book
Just wanted to
say thanks for the awesome trout fishing trip on
Saturday. Even with the rain, we had an
awesome time. One to put down in the memory
book. I appreciate the guides being willing
to fish in the rain.
It will probably
be January before we all get together again...and
maybe not even then as Landon may be getting
redeployment orders soon. Again, thanks,
John A. F.
Exceeded Our Expectations
Thanks again for
a wonderful day of fishing. Dia and I really
enjoyed ourselves. Gregg is a wonderful guide and
exceeded our expectations. He also mentioned that
you may be looking to upgrade your fleet of boats
and the ones you currently have may be for sale.
If I may ask would you be selling these boat and
motor, and what would you be asking for it or
Thanks again and
hope to get back ASAP!
Debbie and Ron .... we are delighted to have our
photos on your Cotter Trout Dock
website. Had I known that you would be
preparing slide shows with numerous photos, I
would have sent along more! I do not know if
any more can be added to our slideshow at this
point, but if you find that these would make good
additions to the White River scenes that you are
depicting, please feel free to use any or all of
my photos below as you have used the others.
These have been
hiding in my hard drive for months, and seeing
them sure gets me yearning for springtime
when we have our next trip planned to
Cotter! Can't wait! It is so lovely
there, and the men are never happier than when
they are hauling in rainbows!
Best to you ~ D.

LIKE WE'VE KNOWN YOU FOREVER
Hope all is well
in Cotter! We are great here in Muskogee,
OK! We have
managed to miss
the rain all week here they were predicting, which
good for the kids
on Spring Break, but we do need some moisture.
Anyway, I have
attached the pic of the brown that Bob help me
He's not massive
but really a gorgeous fish. Sorry I look
I was fishing and
trying to stay warm. That's the priority!
Also, FYI, we ate
at Letty's the other evening and thought it was
great. The portions are huge. Mike and his
son ordered fajitas and they each only ate about
half of it and took the other half home. It was
really good. THANKS for the info.
ALSO THANKS SO
MUCH FOR THE WONDERFUL TIME AND TRIP. YOU
ALL ARE WONDERFUL, FEELS LIKE WE'VE KNOWN YOU
FOREVER. WE REALLY ENJOYED BOB TOO.
WE'LL GET WITH HIM AGAIN I'M SURE JUST TO SPEND
TIME WITH HIM TOO.
LOVE TO YOU ALL,
BOB AND DEANN M.
We Will Never Forget
Dear Ron &
I just wanted to drop you a line and say again
"Thanks for the best fishing trip ever!!!"
Jean & I travel all over the world with our
business, and this undoubtedly is the best fishing
we have experienced. Eddie, our guide, was
awesome!! We caught so much fish, my arm was
getting tired of reeling, LOL!! The food was
out-of-sight, and the experience we will never
forget. Can't wait till next year to do a
repeat!! Even thinking of bringing our
little granddaughters with their parents for a
fishing trip they will thoroughly enjoy!!
again for everything!!
See ya next
year or sooner!!
Fish In The Boat
I wanted to thank you for a great trip. Even
with the rain we had a fantastic experience.
Michael was a colorful and knowledgeable guide and
kept us entertained and on fish all day. We
may not have gotten into any big boys but we had
to put close to 150 fish in the boat on Saturday.
Thanks again, and
we look forward to a return trip at some point in
We had a blast with our trip and we wanted to send
you all and Mike a couple of pictures that we
took. Have fun and we look forward to seeing you
all again soon.
Guides Went Above And Beyond
- Camp Trip
I didn't get a chance to talk to you before we
left, we were in such a hurry to get cleaned up
and head back to Georgia. We all had a
FANTASTIC time and are looking forward to seeing
you in the spring...WHEN THE WEATHER IS COOLER.
The food was great, especially Lonnie's 'trail
mix' slaw!!! All the guides went above and
beyond to see that we caught plenty of fish and
had a good trip.
Please give Wayne my regards and I hope he is a
"new papa" by now. Hope you and Ron have a
great summer and
Ron and Debbie
