Conditions : Lake Maumelle: Fosters Four Seasons (501-868-9061) said water was clear and at a normal level. Bream bite has been steady and good on worms or crickets. Crappie are good on minnows. Bass fishing has been good using spinnerbaits, crankbaits and topwater lures. Catfish are being brought in on limb lines and trotlines with chicken hearts and chicken livers. White bass reports have been good. All the fish species have been chasing shad in the lake and seem to favor all colors of shad-like baits, walking baits and flukes, according to one local angler. Fosters has all anglers’ needs in the way of bait and food, and also sells non-ethanol gas.

Jolly Roger’s Marina reported the cool weather has changed from fishing deep to shallow water, and fishing is really good! Black bass are excellent. They are biting on wacky rig worms and spinnerbaits both early in the morning and late in the day. Blacks can be caught in 3-10 feet. The cooler weather has activated the bass. Would be trying shallow lures and spinnerbaits. Kentucky bass are excellent and are being caught on crankbaits and jigs. They can be found in 4-9 feet of water. They are mixed in with the black bass. White bass fishing is excellent. Use Rooster Tails, CC Spoons or deep-diving Bandits and Bombers. They are all over the lake. They are being caught schooling in the Main Lake on CC Spoons, white jigs and Rooster Tails. Crappie fishing has been good. Rain recently has improved the crappie fishing. They are being caught on minnows and jigs. Crappie are 20 feet deep; try the edges of the channels and on the old road beds. Lots of 6-9-inch crappie being caught, so it should be great winter fishing. Bream are good and can be found at 15 feet on the bottom. They are being caught on crickets and live worms. Catfishing is good and they are being caught in 15-20 feet of water on stink bait, small bream and chicken livers.
