Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said the lake temp is in the 60s and the lake level is at full pool. Black bass are being caught on just about anything you want to throw. This is floating worm season, so that is always fun. Also try a jighead worm in the guts of pockets. A carolina rig is a great way to catch a good one and sight fishing is how most tournaments are being won. Crappie are in brush in 5 feet of water and less. White bass are still in most major creeks.

Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is 56 to 60 degrees. The water is very stained from the recent rains. Black bass have slowed a little due to the stained water, but are still very good. Jighead worms and floating worms are hot right now. Carolina rigged lizards and brush hogs are producing quality sacks as well. Walleye are biting well on small lipless crankbaits and crappie jigs fished near main lake structure. Stripers shut down with the cold front and the top water bite has hit a brief standstill with the colored water. Spoons, jigs and Alabama rigs might be needed the next few days until the water clears, but don’t give up on throwing a Cordell C-10 Redfin near major points on the river channels. Bream are still fair and being caught around brush in the 20-foot range. Crappie are still good and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs in 6 to 14 feet of water. Catfish are still fair and being caught on trotlines fished near main lake and secondary points.
