The typical fishing boat used on the White River is a 20 foot long, flat-bottom John boat. These boats are well designed for running the Ozark rivers and streams because they are able to run in shallow water or higher flows and still comfortably and securely accommodate three fishermen.
Many will agree that using a White River John Boat is the best way to experience the river as well as to find the best fish. Floating with the current, being able to see fish in their habitat through the clear water, is both exhilarating and relaxing. It is also possible to view many different types of wildlife from the river including deer and eagles. Using a boat enables one to see many more miles of this beautiful Ozark river valley, too.
The White Hole Resort boats are fully equipped and ready to run. Included with the boat is a 9.9 hp Mercury outboard motor, a full tank of fuel, 3 padded swivel seats, live well, net, paddle, life jackets, throw cushion, and a drag chain. Fishing boats are available for rent for either half-day use or full-day use. Our dock operating hours are from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm in the summer months and 7:30 am until dusk in the winter months. Rental boats are not equipped to be on the water after dark.
