: Lake Ouachita: Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is clear and the water temperature is 55 to 58 degrees. Black bass are active and being caught near structure. The topwater bite has slowed, but is still good on all areas of the lake. Try a jig and pig or drop-shot a finesse worm for some good action near structure. Walleye have slowed. CC spoons, jigged vertically, or drop-shotted nightcrawlers are still producing some fish. Stripers are very good on Alabama rigs. Concentrate on major creek basin areas to locate these fish. No report on bream. Crappie are biting well. They are being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs around 12 to 16 feet deep. Catfish are biting well on nightcrawlers and cut bait.

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.
