- River Trout Fishing - Shore Lunches
and Camping Meals
At Cotter Trout
Dock we are famous for our shore lunches and
camp cooking as well as the great White
River and Buffalo River fishing.
Field & Stream and other outdoor
magazines have written several articles
about us, and they all raved about our
meals. But the article we are most proud of
is one that appeared in Gourmet Magazine.
They had many good things to say about our
meal and our guides. We bet you will too!
We use top quality ingredients like corn-fed
beef, local tomatoes (when possible) and
cooks who know what to do with them.
A Shore Lunch is freshly caught trout,
bacon (cooked a special way) and tomato
sandwiches, french fries, hush puppies,
blackeyed peas (seasoned a special way) and
banana pudding or strawberry
This is all cooked by your guide over
charcoal along the riverbank or on a gravel
bar in the middle of the river. We
have some guests that say they come here
just for the Shore Lunch.
After fishing all morning on
the White River or Buffalo River, groups
and individuals enjoy pulling up to a
gravel bar at noon for a great hot home
On overnight trips on the White River or the
Buffalo River you'll be accompanied by an
advance commissary boat operated by
one of our excellent cooks. This craft
carries all provisions and gear, and travels
ahead to the camp site. Everything is set up
and meals ready when you arrive. One
commissary boat supplies up to 6 fishermen.
For larger groups we provide additional
boats and cooks.
Cooks arrive ahead of guests so that lunch
will be ready when they come ashore. A
rain fly is set up for shade and tables are
set up. Your guide brings the boat chairs
that you have been using and sets them
around table. Lunch takes about an
hour, then it is time to go fishing again.
You'll eat heartily at the end of the day!
Delicious camp meals prepared by skilled
outdoor chefs and the invigorating air
