The Chicken Farmers Sneak Off For Some Trout Fishing

Last week Larry and I took off on a short get away to Cotter Arkansas with my parents, trout fishing at the White River.  My parents began bringing our family here way back in 1994 and we've been going there ever since.  We absolutely love this beautiful place!  We always stay at the Rainbow Drive Resort in Cotter, they have everything you need right there.  Lodging, fishing supplies, boat rentals and lots of trout.

If you've never been to the White River, it is a beautiful amazing place.  The water is crystal clear, you can see the trout swimming all around your boat and the water temperature stays in the 50's. No mater how hot the day is you can catch a cool breeze off of the water.

This is a rainbow trout I caught, not a huge fish but still nice.  I was raking in the fish on this day.  Larry and my dad both are asking, how are you doing that?  I said they like a little action, I give it a reel reel, jerk jerk.  Well they called me a real jerk the rest of the day. 

This is a brown trout Larry caught last year on our fishing trip to the White River.  Brown Trout need to be 24 inches long to keep, so this beautiful fish went back in the water.

Each evening just before dark a thick fog begins to rise up from the water and the river turns ghostly white. It's an absolutely beautiful sight.  The fog hangs on the water until late morning the next day.

Long legged bird fishing in the fog.

Fog is rolling in.  This is the boat dock, boats are to be back at the dock by 6:00 p.m.  I can see why.

This is my dad.  He taught me to fish at a young age and I'm hooked for life.  I'd rather go fishing than shopping, how many women do you know that can would say that?

It was a much needed get away and we had a wonderful time!  Now it's back to chicken farming.
