Arkansas Free Fishing Weekend Coming Up!

Governor Hutchinson and the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission have announced a second Free Fishing Weekend for the state of Arkansas coming up June 12-14th! That means anyone can fish in Arkansas without a license from Friday, June 12th at 12pm until Sunday, June 14th at midnight!

Ben Batten, chief of the AGFC’s Fisheries Division, says that June will be an excellent time to catch a few in Arkansas rivers, lakes and ponds, and that it will be made even better when people are now able to return to camping and the great outdoors.

Free Fishing Weekend is an event sponsored by the AGFC and then approved and declared by the Governor.
