AGFC Approves Trout Permit Increase

LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission voted unanimously to increase the fees for resident and nonresident trout permits during Wednesday’s regularly scheduled meeting in Little Rock. The new price for resident trout permits will be $10 annually, while the nonresident trout permit will increase to $20 annually.

This is the first increase to the resident stamp since 1987 and the first increase to the nonresident stamp since 2003. The increase in revenue from the stamp will be dedicated to funding the renovation of the AGFC’s Jim Hinkle Spring River State Fish Hatchery, trout management efforts and improving fishing access and opportunities. The resident stamp’s increase was authorized by Act 886 during the 92nd General Assembly earlier this year. The increase will not go into effect until Aug. 1.    MORE
