Fishing & Lakes

Arkansans know a thing or two about outdoor water recreation. After all, The Natural State has 9,700 miles of streams and 600,000 acres of lakes that are scenic havens for boating, fishing, and other water sports. We have crystal clear lakes for scuba, wake boarding, skiing, tubing, jet skiing and swimming activities. Sport fishing is phenomenal as well for black bass, trout, catfish, panfish, striped bass and walleye. Whether you seek our famous trout tailwaters, bass fisheries or just enjoy a sunset cruise on the lake, we welcome you to discover the beauty of our lakes and rivers.
