District 2, Arkansas Game & Fish Commission Programs, Newsletters, & Reports (scroll down past photos) Monthly Game & Fish newsletters and annual lake reports keep you up to date on stockings, progress on issues affecting our fisheries, and new projects. The three hardworking, hands-on biologists shown here are the men who produce the newsletters and annual lake reports, and who have spent long hours coordinating numerous fisheries enhancement projects. Mark and Ken contributed the technical articles for this web site, as well as most of the photographs. They, along with State trout biologist John Stark, as well as many others at Arkansas Game & Fish, have made the Arkansas Ozarks fisheries what they are today.
