Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water temperature is 70-74 degrees and the water is stained from the recent rain. Largemouth bass are biting well on jig and pigs. A topwater bite is still going well. Some very nice spotted bass are also being caught on live crawfish and drop-shot rigs fished near main lake points and humps. Walleye are biting well on spoons jigged vertically around main lake points with timber. Stripers have slowed a bit, but are still biting well on live shad and slow-trolled Alabama rigs around main lake points and humps. Bream are fair on crickets and worms fished 15 to 25 feet deep around brush. Crappie are still biting well around brush in 12 to 20 feet of water on minnows and crappie jigs. Catfishing is very good on nightcrawlers fished near major creek basins and large bays. Jug lines are effective at night in these same areas.

Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said the surface water temperature is in the 80s and the water level is 5 feet below full pool and falling. Black bass are being caught on topwater lures along timberlines in creek channel swings. Try a Spook or any other walking-type topwater lure. many people also are catching bass in 12 to 16 feet of water on Texas-rigged or jighead worms. Bream are still biting on the bottom in 5 to 8 feet of water near the guts of small pockets.
