Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Greeson Marine, hometown dealer of the Arkansas born-and-bred, all-welded Xpress fishing boat in Hot Springs, reports lake conditions clear to slightly off color depending on what part of the lake you are on. Lake temps have risen back to the mid- to high 80s. Bass still reads as follows: lousy. Fish are being caught, but any size is few and far between. Our resident pro Derek Sandlin, who fished a tournament with Marc Davis, (YES THE MARC DAVIS) only weighed in 8 pounds and culled nearly 25 fish. The only go-to at the moment is the drop-shot rig in black, green or salt-and-pepper and over brush piles. Sporadic fish will be caught on crankbaits and spoons, but it may be a good time to take up another hobby like croquet or just practicing trash-talking the other anglers, which many consider to be the only reason to fish in the first place. Catfish are good, as usual, on drop-offs. Crappie have been fair in 15-20 feet of the main channels and on brush. “Good luck! Go Greeson!”

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.
