Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Charles Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said water temperatures are in the upper 80s. Water clarity in the upper river is dingy, while the mid-river and lower river are both dirty, with some clear backwater and creeks, but for the most part everything is either stained or dirty. Bass fishing has been tough after the rain, but bass still can be caught on Rat-L –Traps, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and an occasional topwater bite with frogs, Whopper Poppers and Zara Spooks. Trap and bass are still just outside of the buoy line on sandbars in 20-25 feet of water. Swimbaits, chatterbaits and spinnerbaits are the way to go. White bass are schooling on points in the main river. Use in-line spinners, small Rat-L-Traps, small crankbaits and jerkbaits. Bream have been excellent along the main riverbank with many being caught on crankbaits, worms and crickets. Look for areas with wood along the bank. Catfish has been fair in the main river channel on worms, shad and cut 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.
