Worms have been working really well with an occasional topwater bite with Chug Bugs and Zara Spooks. Main river flipping wood with worms and structure bugs, and crankbaits off of drops. Striper fishing has been really good using chatterbaits with a scamshad trailer, white or pearl blue, as well as swimbaits in the same color. Fish outside the buoy line along gravel, rock jetties, the inlet of the nuclear plant and in the deeper holes of the bigger creeks where are the topwater bite has been pretty good early in the morning.

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.
