Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Dardanelle: Chuck Morrison at Classic Catch Guide Service (479-774-9117) said the surface water temperature is 76 degrees and warming to 80. Water clarity is dingy in the river with some clear backwater areas. Largemouth bass have been biting very well from dam to dam on jigs, buzzbaits, Rat-L-Traps and Sweet Beavers, and on spinnerbaits on windy days. Work the shallows in the mornings and evenings; it hasn't been taking the fish long to head deep once the sun comes out. Chatterbaits worked around heavy vegetation have worked well, as have frogs. Stripers have been fair on large prop baits below the dam and on Rat-L-Traps and other crankbaits in the creeks late in the evening and early in the morning. White bass have been schooling in the river; try small Rat-L-Traps, tailspinners and topwater poppers. Crappie have been fair in 7 to 8 feet of water around brush in creeks. Catfish have been good on cut skipjack and shad around the mouths of the creeks.

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.
