Grab a fishing rules and regs book from WalMart or wherever. Its got the specifics in there, can't remember off the top of my head. I'm pretty sure lakes and impoundments it is year round 24 hrs a day. Sunrise to midnight in creeks, streams and most rivers. I think there are stipulations on portions of the Missouri, Mississippi, and I think the St. Francis rivers where it is 24 hrs also. But I do know it is in the booklet I mentioned, they're free and a lot of gas stations and farm stores have them too. Pretty much anywhere you can buy hunting and fishing licenses will have them by the register. Hope this helps.
