Free Fishing weekend
Residents and nonresidents may fish anywhere in Arkansas noon Friday, June 11, until midnight Sunday night, June 13, without fishing licenses or trout permits. Regulations for Arkansas waters apply: daily limits, slot limits and length limits must be observed. An annual tradition sponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and approved by Gov. Hutchinson, Free Fishing Weekend gives many people the opportunity to enjoy the amazing angling The Natural State has to offer.
In addition to the lifting of the license requirement, the AGFC has stocked nearly 50 Family and Community Fishing locations across the state and will host fishing derbies at the four hatcheries below on Saturday, June 12 for young anglers and their families.
