Arkansas Fishing License Information

Nonresident fishing trip licenses cost $10 for three days, $15 for 7 days and $20 for 14 days. To fish in trout waters, an additional $7.50 nonresident trout permit is also required.

Licenses may be purchased at boat docks, many locations selling hunting and fishing supplies, some discount chains or directly from the Game and Fish Commission. They may be ordered by phone at 800-364-4263. Have your credit card and driver's license ready when calling.
