Is it legal to use fish traps in Arkansas ? I’ve looked at the regulations and can’t find any information about it.
Arkansas River. Catfish. Homemade pvc pipe trapBait traps are legal for bait fish up to 4 inches. Most all other types of traps require a collection permit that are given to biologists for research purposes. Unless you're talking about a hoop net then you're only allowed to use a small fiddler net or get a commercial license for bigger nets.
What type of trap are you wanting to use? What kind of fish are you wanting to catch?
