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.

 

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