LITTLE ROCK — The summer heat can push most fish deep, especially during the middle of the day. Finding these fish is all about finding the cover they’re holding on. Thanks to the work of the AGFC, thousands of deep-water hot spots are available for anglers. Here’s how to find them.
You are hereby notified that Commissioners of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will meet on the following dates and times to consider any business that may be brought before the Commission. Unless otherwise stated, meetings will be held at the AGFC offices, 2 Natural Resources Dr. in Little Rock.
LITTLE ROCK – The dove season opener may be the highlight of Labor Day Weekend, but it’s also the first shot of the year for waterfowl hunters to break out the decoys and calls. The statewide early Canada goose season in Arkansas runs from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30.
Another happy angler landed a rainbow trout last week in the cool tailwater of north Arkansas.
BENTONVILLE – If hunter education has a “decathlon,” it’s the Youth Hunter Education Challenge, a National Rifle Association-sponsored competition involving clubs and individuals from coast to coast in outdoors-related disciplines.
MAGNOLIA – The sun may have cooked away any rainbows over Lake Columbia on Saturday, July 27, but local angler David Lee Sisson certainly found the proverbial pot of gold when he netted a fish few in the fishing world have ever heard of. A golden crappie surfaced at the end of his line during one of his frequent trips to the 3,000-acre fishing destination in Columbia County.
EL DORADO — Landowners and representatives from timber companies, non-profit organizations and state agencies representing more than 1.1 million acres of private land in southern Arkansas collaborated during June workshops in Hope and El Dorado to improve habitat for turkey, quail and other wildlife in Arkansas.
