: Lake Atkins: Lucky Landing (479-641-7615) said that water was clear and surface temperature was 60 degrees. Water level was normal. Crappie success ranged from fair to good. Minnows or jigs were working. Bream tended to be slow, but there were fair reports using worms and crickets. Bass reports leaned on the poor side with the action being slow. Catfishing was good using chicken livers. No reports on white bass.

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.
