: Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the surface water temperature is 66 to 70 degrees and the water clarity is clearing up, but the rains may change that. Largemouth bass are still biting very well on floating worms, creature baits and Carolina-rigged lizards around main-lake and secondary points. Walleye are biting well on shallow-running crankbaits in the mornings and evenings. Stripers are biting well on C-10 Redfins with the west end of the lake being hot. Bream are excellent on crickets, redworms and maggots in 10 to 20 feet of water. Crappie are biting very well on minnows and jigs in brush around 8 to 15 feet deep. Catfishing is very good on live bait and cut bait in 20 to 25 feet of water.

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.
