Really enjoyed my time on the White River, just south of Beaver Lake in Arkansas. This is a very docile river, at least at this stage. Lake is still high and so is the river- high and slow. There were some pretty incredible back bay type areas, chock full of White egrets and Blue Herons, as well as an abundance of Kingfishers.
I fished it as well in preparation for the kayak fishing tournament I entered for the next day. On the map where it ends, there was a really nice, fast run. If I was to continue on, I would probably portage it to the other side. Instead, I parked on a rock bank and swam for a spell in the river. That felt good considering it was in the mid 90's. I will be coming back again to paddle and fish this stretch of river. Check out the video below to see what I mean.
