Feb 28, 2014 - Arkansas is known for its fishing — it may have more hunters and fishermen per capita than any other state.
When the subject is Arkansas fishing, the topic of conversation usually turns to bass, crappie, catfish and trout. But anglers shouldn’t forget about walleye when fishing the Natural State.
Here's more from Keith Stephens of the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission:
When the second half of February arrives, it’s walleye time in Arkansas. The tasty but challenging fish move up to shallow, graveled areas for spawning.
A number of lakes and rivers in the state have walleye, and the best known fishery is in Greers Ferry Lake in north-central Arkansas. Spawning sections of the lake are several tributaries – South Fork, Middle Fork and Devil’s Fork especially.
