: Lake Atkins: Lucky Landing (479-641-7615) said water is clear and the surface temperature has been ranging mid-70s to upper 80s under full sun earlier this week. The level is normal. Best reports of the week came from largemouth bass. Anglers reported good results catching bass in slots here and there. Plastic worms and spinnerbaits worked best. Bream were poor; keep trying worms or crickets, though. Crappie are fair; the fish are hit and miss. No reports on catfish. 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.
