Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Chuck Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said surface water temperature is 88 degrees and visibility is as good as 3 feet away from current. Stripers are holding on the ends of the jetties upriver and will hit swim baits, large white crankbaits and Rat-L-Traps. The topwater bite has slowed. Largemouth bass have been hit-and-miss, depending on current. Jigs, worms, deep-diving crankbaits, drop-shot rigged finesse worms and Carolina-rigged lizards are working on the deep side of jetties and sandbars. Frogs and jigs fished in vegetation from mid-river to the lower river are working well, as are crankbaits and Texas-rigged worms at the mouths of creeks. White bass and small stripers are schooling in the creeks and the backwater of the river; spoons, tailspinners and small Rat-L-Traps are working well. Crappie are biting on white jigs, small minnows and trolled crankbaits in 10 to 12 feet of water around brush. Catfish are biting well on cut skipjack and shad at the mouths of creeks. Bream are biting well on crickets and worms in the main river around rocks with grass in the creeks around brush piles and 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.
