Conditions : Lake Ouachita: Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said the surface water temperature is in the 80s and the lake is at full pool. Black bass are being caught on topwater along timber lines in creek chanel swings. Try a Spook or any other walking-type topwater lure. Many people are catching bass in 12 to 16 feet of water on a Texas-rigged or jighead worm. Bream are still biting on the bottom in 5 to 8 feet of water in the guts of pockets.

Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is clear and the surface temperature ranges from 80 to 84 degrees. Black bass are biting well on Texas-rigged worms and drop-shot worms. Top-water action is still good with Zara Spooks, Zoom Super Flukes and buzzbaits druing the day and black ¾-oz. spinnerbaits at night. Walleye are very good on drop-shotted nightcrawlers and crawler harnesses on a bottom bouncer. When you find a few, make sure to have a ¾-oz. CC spoon handy for vertical jigging. Stripers are fair to good on live bait. Try main lake points and humps. Bream are still very good and being caught around brush in the 15- to 25-foot range near brush. Crappie are still fair and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs. These fish are being caught 15-20 feet deep. Catfish are still good and being caught on trotlines and jug lines fished in big bays and major creek basins.
