Conditions : Lake Maumelle: FFosters Four Seasons (501-868-9061) said the water clarity is fair and the surface water temperature is in the low to mid-60s. Bream are excellent around shallow rocky areas on crickets. Crappie are biting well on minnows fished around any shallow brush. Bass are fair on spinnerbaits and crankbaits. The bass are bedding right now. Catfishing is excellent. Some bream anglers are even catching catfish on crickets while they’re searching for sunfish.

Jolly Roger’s Marina said the water is 0.3 feet above the spillway and the surface water temperature is 66 degrees at mid-lake and 70 degrees at the west end. Largemouth bass are biting well on wacky-rigged worms, spinnerbaits, jerkbaits and many other shallow-water lures. They are bedding in 3 to 6 feet of water, but the spawn is wrapping up. Spotted bass are biting well in 3 to 10 feet of water on jigs and crankbaits. White bass are fair and are moving back out into the lake. Deep-diving Bandit crankbaits and Bomber crankbaits fished on the east side of the bridge are working, as are spoons, white jigs and Rooster Tails in the main body of the lake when you can find the fish schooled up. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs. The crappie are moving back off the banks now that their spawn is over. Bream are biting well on worms and crickets fished around brush in 20 feet of water. Catfishing is good on stink bait, small sunfish and chicken livers in 15 to 20 feet of water.
