: Lake Atkins: Lucky Landing (479-641-7615) said water is clear and the surface temperature earlier this week was 62 degrees. Bream reports were fair. Crappie also were fair, with minnows and jigs both working some. Bass reports were good. Spinnerbaits and crankbaits are the best baits. Catfish should bite well if you bait the hook with a redworm.

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.
