Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Catherine: Shane Goodner, owner of Catch’em All Guide Service said water temperature below Carpenter Dam has risen to 71 degrees with clear conditions in the tailrace. Entergy is currently scheduling minimum flow to maintain lake levels. Rainbow trout stocking begins in mid-November, which will mark the beginning of quality fishing. October brings much cooler temperatures which cause threadfin shad to move into the tailrace, bringing white bass and stripers to feed. Topwater action has been observed below the bridge in the early morning and late evening by small schools of stripers. White 1/4-ounce jigs and 5-inch soft plastics hooked weightless have taken fish in the 10-pound class. Walleye in the 3-pound range are also in the area, chasing baitfish and have been caught on Carolina rigs tipped with minnows and on firetiger Rapala jerkbaits. Timing is the bottom line with these fish as feeding periods are inconsisent and short-lived. Much of the day very little action is seen or experienced.

About: - Lake Catherine was created in a virtual wilderness between Hot Springs and Malvern. Eleven miles long, the lake covers a mere 1,940 acres, nestled in narrow valleys of the Ouachita Mountains.

Fishing: Anglers come to the lake for its largemouth bass, spotted bass and striped bass, crappie, bream, and catfish and walleye fishing. A rainbow trout fishery, stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, exists in the lake's tailwaters below Remmel Dam.

Lake Catherine State Park offers 17 fully-equipped cabins with kitchens, 70 campsites, a marina selling bait and fuel in summer and renting boats throughout the year, a launch ramp, a swimming area, picnic sites, playgrounds and hiking trails.
