Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Phillip Kastner of Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said on US97 radio said that like on Lake Hamilton, the spawn is still going but the lion's share is over. He's hearing reports of lots of fish now are being caught on topwater baits, and he's hoping for some rain because Ouachita is still only a foot from full pool. He says that a significant amount of rain this week would put water up in the buckbrush, and that leads to some of the best topwater fishing all year -- the flooded buckbrush of May. "Some rain and I think that will be fun." Kastner also says a spinnerbait is fine in the buckbrush, but his favorite bait for those conditions lately has been the Stanley Ribbit Frog. "I'd rather throw a frog than anything else. That little trick works."

Kastner said that last weekend's Trader Bill's Appreciation Day tournament on Ouachita produced 10 teams that caught more than 14 pounds of bass, with the winning team hauling in nearly 20 pounds.
