Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Charles Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said water temperature is in the mid to upper 70s. Clarity is poor, with the current reducing. There are some stain along with some clear water in the creeks. Bass fishing has been hit and miss due to the rising and falling water. Bait of choice has been spinnerbaits and Rat-L Traps, with a squarebill and a soft plastic jerkbait bite occasionally. Pop-Rs, Zara Spooks, Whopper Poppers, buzzbait and Chug Bugs all have been working well on top. Stripers have been poor due to the muddy water. White bass have been poor due to the muddy water, but in some of the creeks you can still catch a few on sunny days with in-line spinners, Pop-Rs, Rat-L Traps and crankbaits. Crappie have been caught in 8 feet of water in backwater areas using jigs in Fire Tiger and black red colors and in submerged trees. Catfishing has been fair on cut perch, stink bait and large minnows just outside the buoy line and around the mouth of creeks. Catfish in the creeks has been good on live minnows and live perch.

About: - Lake Dardanelle is one of the most accessible and attractive recreation areas in Arkansas. Located about half-way between Little Rock and Fort Smith, the lake stretches some 50 miles.

Fishing: The lake, which is extremely popular with anglers, boasts populations of big catfish. White bass are native to the river, with adults traveling in schools and feeding near the surface. Bream fishing is excellent in the lake, which has also been stocked with crappie and largemouth bass.  With no closed season and mild winters, fishing is good year round.

Facilities: Public boat docks offer boat and motor rental services, fuel, food, and other supplies and services. Some 250 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campsites are available around the lake, plus Lake Dardanelle State Park welcomes visitors at two shoreline locations.
