Lake Ouachita Sponsored by

Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort (870-867-2191) said water surface temperature has been 82-88 degrees. The water is stained. Black bass are still fair and still being caught with Texas-rigged worms, pig-n-jigs and buzzbaits. Brush piles on main lake and secondary points are producing the best results when fished with Texas-rigged plastics or jigs. Drop-shot finesse worms are working well for “spots.” Walleye are still excellent and are being caught trolling shallow running crankbaits and jigging CC spoons. Stripers are fair to good on live bait. The central and east areas of the lake are the best areas for these fish. Bream are good. Crickets, maggots and redworms are best fished 20-25 feet deep. Crappie are fair. Try using minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 25-30 feet deep near brush. Catfish are fair to good. Try night crawlers, trotline minnows or hot dogs in depths of 15-20 feet. Call Mountain Harbor fishing guides Mike Wurm (501-622-7717), Chris Darby (870-867-7822) or Jerry Bean (501-282-6104) for more information.

About: - Situated among the beautiful pine forest, Arkansas's Lake Ouachita is the largest lake located entirely within Arkansas. It is known for its scenic beauty and clear waters. Created when Blakely Mountain Dam impounded the waters of the Ouachita River near Hot Springs, the lake is virtually surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest and has one of Arkansas's most pristine shorelines at some 970 miles.
