At Rising River Guides, traditionally we are fly fishing the white river. However, sometimes we understand you are just not into fly fishing. We still want to take you fishing! We believe in conservation and taking care of the fish that take care of us. Spin fishing can often be very hard on the trout, but not always. Jigs are the exception.
One of the most deadly techniques for trout fishing is spin fishing with a jig. We use lightweight spinning tackle and fish marabou jigs. These jigs can imitate shad, crawfish, sculpin, and an array of other baitfish. The jigs are irresistible and easy to fish. Most importantly after we pinch the barbs they are basically just flies.
Trips DO NOT include: Arkansas fishing license or trout stamp.
These will need to be purchased prior to meeting your guide.
ALL trips require a $200 deposit.
When you book a spin fishing trip, there are a few things you can expect to experience. First and foremost, you’ll be fishing in some of the most beautiful locations that Arkansas has to offer.

When it comes to the actual fishing, you can expect to use lightweight spinning tackle and fish with jigs, as mentioned earlier. Your guide will provide you with all the necessary gear, including rods, reels, line, and jigs. They’ll also teach you how to cast, retrieve, and work the jig to entice the fish to strike.
