Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort (870-867-2191) said the water surface temperature has ranged 84-86 degrees. The water is clearing. Black bass are fair and being caught with Texas rigged worms and creature baits. Brush piles on main lake and secondary points are producing the best results. Walleye are excellent and are being caught trolling shallow running crank baits and jigging CC spoons. Stripers are good on live bait. The central area of the lake is the hottest right now. Bream are very good. Crickets, maggots and redworms are best fished 12-25 feet deep. Crappie are still fair. Try using minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 20-30 feet deep near brush. Catfish are excellent. Try live bait or cut bait in depths of 15-20 feet. Mountain Harbor fishing guides Mike Wurm, Chris Darby and Jerry Bean are available to take anglers out to the best spots.

David Draper of the Lake Ouachita Striped Bass Association said water is clear and the white bass are spot-breaking, as are the striper. Surface temperature was 84 degrees and the fish are moving down, but you will see the occasional spot-breaker. He reports he didn't catch anything Saturday, but he saw fish in the areas of Crystal Chute, around points 6, 7, 12, 13 and 28. The thermocline was between 58 and 780 feet, and that’s where he saw most of the fish. The lake is getting very busy with boats, so be careful.
