Conditions : Lake Maumelle: Fosters Four Seasons (501-868-9061) said the lake was stained this week but the water remained at normal level, and the fishing overall was excellent. Some 40- to 60-pound catfish were being pulled out with worms and chicken liver. Crappie was excellent around stumps using No. 6 minnows. Bream were excellent around brush piles using crickets. Bass could not keep up with the rest of the fishing, still rating good, however, with spinnerbaits and crankbaits bringing them in.

Jolly Roger’s Marina reported water is 0.2 feet above the spillway and the water temperature is 77 degrees in the mid of lake and 79 at west end. Black bass fishing is excellent, with the bass biting in shallow water on Wacky rig worms, spinnerbaits, jerkbaits and just about everything else, and they can be caught in 5 to 8 feet of water. The temperature is about 80 on the banks. Spawn is over. Kentucky bass is good, mostly on the same lures as blacks. Their being caught on crankbaits and jigs and can be found in 3-10 feet. White bass fishing is fair; use deep diving Bandits and Bombers on this side of bridge. They also are being caught in the main lake on CC spoons, white jigs, and Rooster Tails when schooling. Crappie are moving off the banks and the fishing is fair. They’re being caught on minnows and jigs. Bream fishing is excellent. They can be found at 13 feet on the bottom, using crickets and live worms. Catfishing is excellent in 15-20 feet depth. Use stinkbait, small bream and chicken liver.

Hatchet Jack’s (501-758-4948) reported no change in the fishing from last week. Bass fishing was excellent using spinnerbait, topwater lures and creature bait. Catfishing was poor, and white bass fishing was poor. Crappie fishing was good with minnows and red and white jigs. Bream fishing was fair with redworms and crickets.
