White River – After Action Report 8/21 & 8/22

Lyle with a great way to close out the trip … Larry Anderson pics

Some great images and a report from Larry Anderson, after he brought a crew in to hit the White River with our guides.



My group had a great time fishing with the Levin Bros and Mississippi Chad this past Thursday and Friday and I wanted to share a brief after action report.

Thursday morning the hopper dropper bite was good, when we met for a shore lunch all 3 boats reported landing 30-35 fish that morning.

Several peeps in my crew reported catching rainbows, browns and the Snake River Cutthroats all before noon on Thursday.

Larry, the brown and the hat

Later that afternoon I landed a 20” brown….. both the fish and the Stetson were successfully released into the river unharmed – lol.

Friday morning was a solid start at Rim Shoals, since we were lodging there and it was a bloody Mary morning….. when Chad called and said to meet at Rim for the morning float that was a welcome decision!

Late Friday afternoon Clint Auten from Irving Texas, landed a 20” brown on a hopper with an exciting fight.

Lyle Bellows from Gainesville, Texas and I finally had our turn in the boat with Chad and we decided to target the big boys on the streamer bite,  Lyle skillfully cast streamers in every imaginable fishy looking spot for a solid 4 hours….just as we were about to run out of daylight Lyle landed our 3rd 20” brown of the trip on a Sex Dungeon.

Awesome trip, Great Guides, we will be back for bigger Browns soon!

Best Regards,


Clint and his hopper brown
