The story of the White River Trout Club starts at The University of Arkansas, when fraternity brothers David Burgher and Stephen Balogh first met. The two quickly bonded over their love for all things fly fishing and trying to find the best fishing the natural state had to offer (in between classes, of course). After graduation, best friends David and Stephen chased opportunities to fish all over the world – living and guiding in places like Alaska, South America, Colorado, New Mexico and the Catskills. It wasn’t until 2020 that the two decided to join forces and officially call Arkansas home again. With their combined experience working in some of the greatest fisheries in the world, David and Stephen embarked on their latest journey of creating what they hope will become one of the greatest fishing lodges on The White River – The White River Trout Club.
