Conditions : Lake Maumelle: Fosters Four Seasons (501-868-9061) said water is at normal level and clear. Anglers are still fishing for bass in the early part of the day or late at night and are getting good results using spinnerbaits, crankbaits and topwater lures. Bream are good on worms and crickets. Crappie reports have been good on minnows and jigs. Catfishing is good using chicken liver. Fosters has all anglers’ needs in the way of bait and food, and also sells non-ethanol gas.

Jolly Roger’s Marina reported the results of its Tuesday Black Bass Tournament “Fish Off,” held last Saturday, and Lee Brazzara and Wes Lowder hauled in 14.08 pounds to take first place. They also landed the Big Bass, a 4.02-pounder. The top five places eash caught more than 11 pounds of bass on Saturday, with Mett Hedrick and Brandon Crain second at 13.14 pounds and Kyle Wise and Keaton Blaylock at 12.54 pounds, just edging the fourth-place team of Crighton Sawyer and Keegan Belk (12.46 pounds). The regular anglers will find black bass biting well on wacky rig worms, spinnerbaits and jerkbaits. Best success is early in the morning or late in the day, and the bass are being caught in 15-20 feet of water. The fish are on the sharp banks and 15 feet off the weeds. Kentucky bass are being caught on crankbaits and jigs. They can be found in 10 to 15 feet mixed in with the blacks. The white bass bite is excellent. Use a CC spoon or deep-diving Bandits and Bombers. While they are all over the lake, they are schooling in the main lake they are hitting CC spoons, white jigs and Rooster Tails. Crappie are good, as recent rain seemed to improve the fishing. Crappie are biting minnows and jigs and are 20 feet deep. Try the edges of the channels and on the old road beds. Bream are excellent and can be found at 15 feet on the bottom biting crickets and live worms. Catfish are good in 15-20 feet and are being caught on stink bait, small bream and chicken livers.
