Catch and Release Works!

There is no question as to whether or not catch and release has made our fishery a better place. Our fish population, in particular, our brown trout, have flourished and average sizes have grown each year with our increase in regulations. Within a two week span, I witnessed the exact same fish caught on the same bank and fly, both times by a lady angler! How cool is that? Check out the pictures below!

Thanks Arkansas Game and Fish and everyone who practices catch and release. It’s always important to continue to grow the sustainability of our fishery for future generations!
