Arkansas residents and non-residents can fish free. Trout fishing is included on this weekend. Normally you are required to have a separate permit to trout fish. Regular creel limits and length limits apply the same as for other times of the year. Commercial fishing gear cannot be used. This free weekend is for sport fishing only.
To find out where to fish, or ask questions about how to fish, call or visit any office of the AGFC, marinas and boat docks, bait and tackle stores or a friend that fishes.
Visit Fishing-arkansas.com for information on fishing categorized by species, water, season, and region. It also contains information on tournaments and resources.
