The Family and Community Fishing Program provides memorable fishing opportunities throughout Arkansas. We bring fishing events, beginner fishing clinics, and tagged fish contests to selected cities throughout Arkansas each year.
April, May, June, September and October
Thousands of pounds of 13- to 15-inch channel catfish are stocked periodically at all Community Fishing Destinations from March through October.
More than 50,000 catchable-sized rainbow trout are stocked each winter from November through February across the state in Family and Community Fishing Program destinations. While most trout average just under a pound, a few 2-5 pounders are stocked each year.
