THE FISH ARE BITING! Up two weeks ago and caught more Rainbows and Browns than I could count. The river is in beautiful shape, clear and cool with minimal generation. Headed up that way again today and will post up some pictures when I get back. E-mail me if you would like more info on a great place to fish, ride and relax.

Exit. Stage West.
I'm inquiring on behalf of two TWT riders and a few others from around the country that participate on a small forum called ActualRiders. We are a small group that meet annually for a few days. Usually from 5-8 riders arrive from Canada, Minnesota, Michigan, Utah and Texas. We've all met and known each other for over five years; they were my first group of riders to ride and meet up with. We are more than just a group, we are a family.

Next year's candidate is the Ozarks and we are looking for a base camp, aka cabin. Your place was suggested by a fellow TWT rider. I'd like to discuss with you if this is a possibility.
Thanks.

When the river is high and the sun is blazing............grab a cold one and head down to the dock.

My friend Mike from Minnesota with a late afternoon catch this past week.

February Bump....

Spent a week at the cabin late January and early February.. River levels were low and the fish were biting on the Norfork and on the White at my cabin. Last minute rentals are not a problem, so if you see a warm weather spell forecast and want to get away, give me a call.

Just got back from a few days at the cabin. River is finally down and the fish are biting..caught lots off the dock. Great time to go for a ride, fish, or simply head up to relax.

I've stayed at the cabin before and it's quite enjoyable. Has anyone who rides a big cruiser stayed there? I have a couple of riders interested in going but they are on big baggers.

Are the baggers coming on a trailer or riding? The hill up and down to the cabin can be a bit hairy but is doable by just about any bike out there and I've seen pics of lots of folks with all sorts of bikes at the cabin.

That said, if they arrive on a trailer, it might be wise to trailer them back over the hill and drop them off at the main road depending on rider skill and such.

It's totally doable, but will put some riders out of their element for sure if they aren't prepared.

It's an unpaved country road up and over a hill. No biggie except for those on street bikes who never leave the pavement.

I have an alternate route through a neighbors farm that bypasses the hill entirely. The alternate does go over a rough railroad crossing but it is not too bad at all. The other, normal route down the hill to the river bottom is very steep and can be a little spooky for big street bikes. There is 2 miles or so of good gravel road from Calico Rock but you can ride this on any bike. Ive done it on my old BMW R80RT and on sport bikes.

Bit of bad news....my neighbor chained her gates and I will no longer be able to grant access to the cabin via the alternate route. Seems some local riff raff were taking advantage of the access without permission and ruined it for all. You will need to go down the steep hill for access. The good news is the county came in and fixed up the road, grading and grooming so it is in excellent shape. Keep in mind you can drive the with most any car. The road is not muddy or rutted, just a bit steep.
