Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort (870-867-2191/800-832-2276 for out of state) said water surface temperature is ranging 78-82 degrees and the water is clear. Black bass are still fair and being caught with jig and pigs and crankbaits. Brush piles on main lake and secondary points are still producing the best results when fished with live crawfish for “spots.” Walleye are good and are being caught jigging CC Spoons. Stripers are still fair on live bait. The central and east areas of the lake are still the best areas for these fish. Bream are fair. Crickets, maggots and redworms are best fished 20-25 feet deep. Crappie are slow to fair. Try using minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 25-30 feet deep fished on the bottom near brush. Catfish are still fair. Try nightcrawlers, trotline minnows or hot dogs in depths of 15-20 feet. Contact Mountain Harbor’s guides – Mike Wurm (501-622-7717), Chris Darby (870-867-7822) or Jerry Bean ( 501-282- 6104) – for more information.

David Draper of the Lake Ouachita Striped Bass Association said LOSBA reports good fishing over the weekend. Surface temperature is around 84 and clear water. The full moon made it a little tough but the fish are in the trees (60-80 feet deep) if you can find them. David said one thing he saw on Sunday was five floating stripers all around 3-5 pounds. David netted one and it had been hooked, so he wanted to please remind everyone they should never release any caught fish. Not only do the fish not survive, but they count toward your daily limit, so if seen you could be fined for being over the limit.

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.
