Escape from the common drudgery of the 9 to 5 world and experience a peaceful day fishing one or more “honey holes” near Arnold. From quick-biting bluegill for the kids to bass and trout for the more serious anglers, Arnold promises a great fishing trip—the kind where you actually catch fish. The Arnold Recreation Area offers large-mouth bass and bluegill year-round, and each fall the Nebraska Game and Parks stocks “put and take” trout into the 22-acre public lake. The Middle Loup River boasts catfish in every deep hole while good bass and bluegill fishing can be found in several privately owned ponds that are “permission only.” For a free guided Arnold fishing trip, contact local angler Ranald Ferguson. You’ll be glad you did. If you don’t like Ranald, your “like device” is broken.
