Arkansas River Locks and Dams

There are 18 lock and dams on the Arkansas River, 5 in Oklahoma and 13 in Arkansas, which have created some of the best fishing areas in the country.

Backwater Areas and old Oxbow lakes fed by the river are stocked by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission with sport fish such as bass, crappie, catfish and bream, along with natural spawning of these species make the river a popular fisheries.

Thirty-seven public access points in Arkansas provide easy river entrance. The river is managed by The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Little Rock District

Striped Bass can be found along the entire 320-mile length of the Arkansas River Kerr McClellan navigation project in Arkansas, from the river's mouth below the Pendleton Bridge to Fort Smith on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border.

The Arkansas River's Last 40 Miles below Dam 2 flows in its natural state to the Mississippi River creating a unique unsurpassed experience.
