Episode 90 of The Destination Angler Podcast – May 4, 2023 Podcast on fly-fishing the mighty White River in Northern, Arkansas with Chad Johnson, owner of CJ’s White River Outfitter.
Our destination is fly-fishing the mighty White River in Northern, Arkansas with Chad Johnson, owner of CJ’s White River Outfitter. The White River below Bull Shoals Dam offers over 55 miles of quality trout water and is world-famous for Brown trout the size of your leg, including 38 lb. brown trout caught just a few years ago.
Chad grew up in Mississippi catfishing on the Perl River until he was invited on a weekend fly-fishing trip to Arkansas. Even after catching only 4 trout, he became obsessed with fly fishing, moved to Arkansas to work at Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher, and now is the head guide. Chad shares his expertise on targeting big Browns, springtime hatches, and nymphing year around, along with some funny stories about his good friend, Dave Whitlock. Bonus: where to wade when the water is high.
