ARKANSAS FISHING LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Arkansas fishing regulations help protect the sport of fishing by outlining specific fishing seasons and limits for each species. Without these important fishing rules and laws, our fish populations would become depleted. Always check for updates to state fishing regulations before each trip since laws can vary depending on the region and body of water.
IT’S NOT A FEE, IT’S A CONTRIBUTION
Responsible anglers strive to learn as much as they can about conservation best practices. If you are wondering what you can do to help with conservation, research local conservation activities and get involved with resource-enhancement projects.
