Arkansas anglers both young and old will be able to fish for free next weekend. No license or permit required.

Thanks to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s free fishing days, the event, which is held annually, starts at noon Friday and will continue until Sunday. During the free fishing days, anglers of all ages will not be required to have a fishing license or trout permit to fish anywhere in the State of Arkansas.

Here is a little information for you on the basics of trout fishing.

 

Kids’ Fishing Day normally held at the Commission’s fish hatcheries on Saturday during Free Fishing Weekend has been cancelled because of coronavirus concerns. 

Residents and nonresidents may fish this weekend without fishing licenses or trout permits. Regulations for Arkansas waters apply: daily limits, slot limits and length limits must be observed.

A fishing license regularly costs $10.50 from the AGFC for Arkansas residents. For nonresidents the cost is $40.
