Today's post is not the normal fishing report, but rather a notice that our guides, Jim Mautte and Sam Ward, have each decided to retire (AGAIN!).

Jim and Sam want to thank all of the fabulous friends they have made over these last years. This has been a fantastic experience and it was our great pleasure to guide you to an outstanding outdoor fishing adventure. Although we are closing down Hosanna Hills Guide Service as a full-time business operation, you can bet that Jim and Sam will continue to fish. Both of these guys are open to occasionally guiding a trip so hang onto their phone numbers if you are interested in a trip sometime in 2017. We will probably even post a fishing report and some pictures from time to time.

Without your very kind reviews on Trip Advisor and Facebook, we would not have been one of the top outdoor venues in the Eureka Springs area, and we want to thank you again for that. Special thanks, also, to our friends locally in the lodging business, who have made referrals for our services.

See you on the river!
