: Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is clear and the surface water temperature ranges from 50 to 55 degrees. Black bass are still biting well near structure on a jig-and-pig combo or finesse worm. Walleye are still slow, but a few have been caught on a vertically jigged spoon or drop-shotted nightcrawler. Stripers are biting well on Alabama rigs fished around major creek basins. No report on bream. Crappie are excellent near brush in 12 to 16 feet of water on minnows and crappie jigs. Catfishing is fair on nightcrawlers and cut bait.

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.
