Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Chuck Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said surface water temperature is 75 degrees. The water clarity is good upriver and is improving in the midriver area. The lower lake is still a bit dingy. Bass have been slow from dam to dam, but the action has been improving on cloudy days. Look for bass around wood cover early in the morning with buzzbaits, topwater walking baits and prop baits. Jigs and chatterbaits have been working well around midday. Stripers are biting well on jetties, jerk baits, topwater prop baits and swim baits. White bass have been schooling on the bank side of the jetties. Try tailspinners, small white crankbaits and spoons. Crappie have picked up on minnows in 10 feet of water around trees. Bream have been excellent in creeks and backwaters with many being caught on the surface using flies. Crickets and worms also are working well. Catfish have been slow, but worms fished in the creeks and cut bream fished along river points has worked for a few.

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.
