While fishing information often travels by word of mouth in Arkansas, mobile applications and other online resources can greatly enhance the fishing experience. Apps offer information on fish species, relevant statistics, lake information, weather knowledge, and date calculation.

Here are five mobile apps to enhance fishing in Arkansas.
