Built in 1956, the 752-acre
lake is one of several relatively shallow, timbered lakes built on feeder
streams of the Arkansas River in west-central and central Arkansas. It's a
cousin to Lake Conway, Lake Overcup and Harris Brake Lake. All four have
reputations of four or more decades of good bream, crappie catfish and
largemouth bass fishing.
