Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Maumelle: WestRock Landing in Roland (501-658-5598) reported that their boat ramp and access to Lake Maumelle will be closed (by order of Central Arkansas Water) from midnight Sunday (12:00 a.m. Monday, April 15) to 6 p.m. Friday, April 19, so that CAW can perform treatment on hydrilla. The lake will remain closed to all boat traffic from 12:01 Monday, April 15, to 6 p.m. Friday, April 19, unless otherwise posted.
Water temperature is 64-66 degrees in most areas, and 61-64 degrees in a few other areas. Maybe the fish are sensing the upcoming closure, as all species were fishing slowly this week. The largemouth bass bite is slow. Males can be found shallow in 2-8 feet of water, while females are being found deeper in areas of 10-15 feet. Jigs, Alabama rigs, crankbaits, swimbaits are reportedly working. Jerkbaits are the bait of choice for fishing shallow in the afternoons. Spotted bass (Kentucky bass) also are slow. Reports of them being found around brush in 8-12 feet as well as in shallow water. Try jigs or shaky heads.
WestRock Landing Tuesday Night Tournament results this week saw Andrew Wooley and Cameron Nesterenko catch a winning 5-bass limit of 11.52 pounds. Cody Bryant and Brad Lequieu, who were second, landed a 4.55-pound Big Bass.
Crappie are slow. Some reports of the crappie being pushed out during the cold snap and can be found anywhere from the teens to 20 feet. Anglers report catching smaller ones. Warmer weather will help but it’s a tough bite now. Try using jigs and minnows.
Bream are slow. Try using crickets and worms. Catfish are slow. Small bream, liver and worms might get some action.
White bass are slow. No reports this week. Try using twister tails
