Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Charles Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said water temperature was 87 degrees warming to 90. Clarity is beginning to improve on the river. Creeks are clear with dingy backwater. Bass fishing has been excellent, with many different ways to catch them; perch jigs around low-hanging trees that has mayflies in them has been a good technique. Casting frogs around the shad spawn has been an excellent technique. Crankbaits off of drops and points have been working well, also. Buzzbaits around the jetties have been working well, too. Stripers and white bass have been good at the heads of the creeks on topwater popbaits and swimbaits. No word on crappie, but have been seeing a lot on the graph around 11 feet. Bream has been excellent on worms and crickets and mayflies around low-hanging trees and on rocks with grass. Flathead has been good on small perch along jetties and bluffs. Channel cats have been good in the creeks on minnows. Blues have been excellent in the mouth of the creeks on cut shad and skipjack.

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.
