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

First Time Fishing Experience
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.
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.)

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!
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 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
John A. F.
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!
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

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 is
good for the kids on Spring Break, but we do need
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

We Will Never Forget
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
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
