Letters from some of our
2015 - Miss Debbie--
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
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.)
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.
Missouri) "Awesome! 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."

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.
First Time Fishing
Debbie and Ron,
What a great first time fishing experience I had
I think I'm hooked on fishing--I found it very
relaxing; the guys were so much fun and
the food was wonderful.
Again, thank you so much and take care.
Hope To See You Soon
Sorry no Email. Could not get my computer
started. I choked it and choked it but
it still would not start. Pictures came
out really well. Hope you enjoy.
Boy not to catch em all. Hope to see you
(Pretty Boy is our guide Wayne, aka "the
purdiest guide on the river!" Those
pictures of Jimmy's big fish are on display at
the dock now.)
We Enjoyed Bobby As Our
Dear Ron and Debbie,
We enjoyed Bobby as our guide.

Could Not Have Asked For
Any Better Service
Dear Mrs. Gamble,
Thank you very much for a most enjoyable fishing
experience. My son-in-law Gill and my
Grandson Paul and I could not have asked for any
service. We really appreciate the
friendliness and expertise of all of you.
Give your cat a pet from us.
Thank you once again for a fabulous trip last
weekend. The fishing was excellent, Cheeko
was a phenomenal guide and the weather held out.
I definitely look forward to another trip soon.
Have a great summer.
Put Us On Fish All Day
Debbie and Ron Gamble:
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 fish.
As our guide, Bobby Flippin kept us out of the
wind and put us on fish all day.
Thanks for 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!

One To Put Down In The
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

Exceeded Our Expectations
Debbie, Ron, & Greg
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 them?
Thanks again and hope to get back ASAP!
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
Best to you ~ D. King (King_J slideshow).
FEELS LIKE WE'VE KNOWN
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 is
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 land.
He's not massive but really a gorgeous
fish. Sorry I look terrible, but
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.
Experience We Will Never
Dear Ron & Debbie:
Jean & 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
Thanks again for everything!!
See ya next year or sooner!!
Judy & Jean T.
150 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 the future.
Had A Blast
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
