Conditions : Lake Catherine: Shane Goodner, owner of Catch’em All Guide Service said water temperature below Carpenter Dam is 51 degrees with clear conditions in the tailrace. Entergy is scheduling generation times every few days to maintain lake levels. These flows are unannounced and are short in duration. Rainbow trout are in the tailrace and being caught by bank fishermen and boaters alike. Live bait presentations such as nightcrawlers, redworms and wax worms fished just off the bottom with a marshmallow floater have accounted for many limits of trout. Artificial lures cast around rock structure and sand bars are working well when the turbines are running. Rainbows seek injured shad in the current and willingly strike small jigs, Super Dupers and Little Cleo's which are a close match to area baitfish. Rooster Tails in white or brown have taken quality trout around shoal areas in the late evening. Trout tend to congregate close to the banks in times of current flow so it is important to remember not to overcast your presentations. Spin fishermen should concentrate on areas protected from direct current flow such as eddies and backwater bays. Fly-fishermen can easily wade to areas that hold good numbers of fish and are having success casting olive colored woolly buggers, San Juan worms in red, and small white streamers around sand bars and rock structure.

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.
