It's time to grab your fishing gear and head out to one of Arkansas' beautiful lakes and go fishing. This weekend it is the Arkansas Free Fishing Weekend from noon on Friday, June 7, until Sunday evening, June 9, 2024.

Arkansas State Parks give us access to 18 rivers and 25 lakes. So there are a lot of fishing opportunities for anglers. This weekend enjoy fishing and take advantage of full-service marinas and boat docks with boat rentals, fishing supplies, fuel, and more. This is also a great time to take the kids out and share your love of fishing with them.

Free Fishing Weekend is made possible by a proclamation by Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission sponsors the annual Free Fishing Weekend. This event allows both residents and non-residents of Arkansas to fish without a license or a trout stamp. But please be aware that all daily limits and fishing regulations will remain enforced. No license will be required from noon on Friday, June 7 until 11:59 PM on Sunday, June 9.
