Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Chuck Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said upriver bass have been very good on jigs, buzzbaits and lizards fished around jetties and in the backwater. Spotted bass have been caught on the main river with flukes and spinnerbaits. Mid-river bass have been very good in backwaters on crawdads, lizards and jigs with buzzbaits late and early. Around Illinois Bayou, bass have been very good on lizards, jigs and buzzbaits with some fish moving out to drops and points already. Crappie have been very good upriver on the backsides of jetties around dead grass. Around mid river, crappie are being caught on spawning flats with jigs. On the lower river, brush piles near the strip pits were the best places to find crappie. White bass have been slow upriver, but many are being caught around the mouth of the nuclear plant on white crankbaits, taillspinners and in-line spinners. Striper fishing has been very good below the dams. Catfish have been very good on cut shad and skipjack in the main river with many being taken in the creeks on dead minnows and worms. Bream have been very good in the smaller creeks on crickets and worms around stumps.

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.
