Lake Catherine Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Catherine: Shane Goodner, owner of Catch’em All Guide Service said water temperature below Carpenter Dam is 61 degrees with clear conditions in the tailrace. Entergy has reduced daily generation times from 16 to 12 hour periods, which has allowed temperatures to rise slightly in the area but has given anglers more time to fish slack water. Trout fishing is very slow, with few trout remaining in the tailrace. Stockings will not begin again until November, and trout fishing will be tough until then. White bass are in and out of the tailrace, chasing schools of threadfin shad. Most fish have been caught below the bridge in the late evening on shallow-running crankbaits and tightlined minnows near the dam. A few walleye have been caught on jerkbaits and Carolina rigs tipped with nightcrawlers. Stripers and hybrids have been spotty, with a little topwater action observed during generation. Be ready with a large soft-plastic jerkbait or Zara Spook and heavy line in case one surfaces near you while you're fishing for other species.

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.
