: Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is stained and 64 to 68 degrees. Bass are biting well on topwater baits, spy baits and crankbaits fished on points with cover. Drop-shot rigs are still producing some good spotted bass when baited with finesse worms and live crayfish. Walleye are fair on ¾-oz. CC spoons jigged vertically near structure. Stripers are fair to good on live bait, hair jigs and some topwater lures on main lake points and humps. Crappie are biting very well around brush in 20 to 30 feet of water on jigs, small spoons and minnows. Catfishing is good on nightcrawlers and stinkbait.

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.
