The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission partners with the Arkansas Big Bass Bonanza to generate awareness of the protection, conservation, and preservation of the Arkansas River. During the event, fisheries biologists hand out oxygenated bags containing largemouth bass fingerlings at each of the five weigh in sites for anglers to release along the river. Up to a half million jumbo fingerling largemouth bass have been released since 2006 during this innovative bass conservation program.
