Fishing is fantastic throughout Hot Springs Village. The lakes in Hot Springs Village have been stocked with bass, catfish, sunfish and other species. The fish population is now monitored by the Hot Springs Village Property Owners Association Lakes Management department and additional stockings are done if needed. In addition to the Hot Springs Village POA’s specific regulations, all U.S. and Arkansas fishing and boating regulations apply to Village lakes, and an Arkansas fishing license is required for anyone 16 years and older. While all owners are encouraged to purchase an annual lake use decal for boats, daily permits are available at each boat ramp for $10. Annual lake use decals or extended term lake use permits are available at the POA main office.
