Free Fishing Weekend in Arkansas

In a May 18 proclamation from Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, anyone may fish in Arkansas without a fishing license or trout stamp from noon Friday through midnight Sunday.

Arkansas Game and Fish Director Austin Booth stated the weekend presents an excellent opportunity for people to try fishing for the first time, or try a new form of fishing, without investing in an Arkansas fishing license or trout stamp.

For anglers who fish primarily Arkansas’s warm water lakes and rivers, the weekend also provides the opportunity to try out some of Arkansas’s cold water fisheries below the Norfork, Bull Shoals and Greers Ferry dams or the Spring River for trout. The proclamation also applies to residents and nonresidents.
