You can buy your fishing license from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission website, a regional AGFC office or from an authorized dealer. Trout and alligator gar anglers, as well as those visiting the border lakes in the White River area will need additional specialty permits. Residents and non-residents are able to choose from various licenses depending on factors such as where you want to fish, what you want to fish, how old you are, etc. Prices range from $5 (resident trout permit) to $35.50 (combination sportsman’s license for residents).
