Vacation Fishing Trips in Arkansas

With The Natural State's four distinctive seasons and moderate weather, even during the winter months, Arkansas has some of the best year round fishing available, which makes the Natural State ideal for vacation fishing trips.

Central Arkansas Fishing

Central Arkansas is a great destination filled with exciting cities, festivals, shopping, and history; yet, fishing opportunities abound amid its rivers and lakes.

The Arkansas River dissects the state as it runs through Central Arkansas and numerous lakes punctuate the region as well. The Arkansas is loaded with game fish, including largemouth bass and catfish. Managed by the U.S. Corps of Engineers, there are numerous public use areas including campgrounds, boat ramps and fishing areas along its length.

Lake Maumelle Fishing Guide

Maumelle Park, the only public campground in Little Rock, is a U.S. Corps of Engineers facility on the river that features a fishing pier, playground, showers and flush toilets, 98 camping spaces with water and electricity, a boat ramp, and a day-use picnic area.

Girl with fish

Lake Maumelle, Arkansas provides Little Rock's main water supply (no swimming allowed), but is also a popular boating and fishing lake. Lake Maumelle, dammed in 1957, covers an area of 14 square miles and has a 70-mile shoreline. Bass is the main Lake Maumelle fishing lure with white, black and hybrid striped being popular catches. Kentucky bass, crappie, bream and catfish are other species found in the lake.

Extensive Little Rock, North Little Rock and Maumelle park systems also provide the chance to play golf or tennis, hike leafy trails, talk to the animals in the park-like Little Rock Zoo or picnic in beautiful natural settings.
