Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Charles Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said water temperatures are in the upper 50s to lower 60s. The river is dingy, with clearer water in the creeks and backwaters, but the rain should change that and muddy up the backwaters as well. Bass have been good on topwaters in the morning and evening. Buzzbaits, frogs and Pop R’s have worked around any fry you see. Flipping lizards, baby brush hogs and Bamboozie craws has worked for bedding bass. Staging bass have been good on spinnerbaits, crankbaits, Rat-L-Traps and jigs. Striped bass have been biting well. Fish swimbaits and topwater prop baits in areas with a lot of current. White bass are in the creeks and are biting well on white grubs and small white crankbaits. Crappie fishing has improved with good size crappie caught on minnows and chartreuse, black/chartreuse and pink jigs along the edge of grass and stumps. Bream have been biting well in the creeks around stumps and laydowns on worms and crickets. Catfish have been good and will improve with the rain. Worms and minnows in the creek and cut perch and shad in the river should produce well.

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.
