Arkansas Anglers will be able to fish for free June 8 – 12 thanks to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s free fishing days.

The event, which is held annually starts at noon Friday and will continue until Sunday.  During the free fishing days anglers will not be required to have a fishing license or trout permit. to fish anywhere in the state of Arkansas.

A fishing license regularly costs $10.50 from the AGFC for Arkansas residents, for nonresidents the cost is $40.

The state of Oklahoma also held a free fishing event last weekend.
