Conditions : Lake Overcup: Lacey Williams at Lakeview Landing on Arkansas Highway 95 (501-242-1437) said, "The water levels are higher than they have been since last spring, I believe. The rain has kicked up a lot of murky water. It's throwing the fish off, but I believe by Friday the water temp will even out more and make for a better fishing day. “Crappie are really liking the pink minnows. And if you're jig fishing, then try white with red or black tips and chartreuse tails. Redworms for bream, and catfish haven't made an appearance that I know of yet. “Y’all remember to have your life jackets if not on your body at least by your side. The high water levels may be hiding stumps – if you're trolling around, be careful. You can always call me (501-242-1437) and I will let you know what the fish are doing at that time

Johnny “Catfish” Banks at Overcup Bait Shop and R.V. Park (501-354-9007) off Arkansas Highway 9 said the water level is up by 1 foot and clarity is murky. Johnny was unsure on surface temperature. “Not anything to report, seems like nobody is getting out at the moment. Things should start turning around soon.”

About: - Lake Overcup is just north of the small town of Morrilton, Arkansas. The 1,025-acre lake is a favorite of crappie enthusiasts throughout central Arkansas. Creel surveys by AGFC personnel indicates that crappie are the second-most popular fish here, with about 30 percent of visiting anglers fishing for them. The surveys also show that the average crappie caught weighs about 2/3 pound (11 ounces), though much larger specimens also fall to Overcup anglers. The daily crappie limit here is 20.

Much of the best fishing is in brushy, stump-laden waters accessible only by boat. In April, when the spawn is underway, most crappie will be around shoreline cover or in old stumpfields scattered around the lake.

Lake Overcup also has two wheelchair-accessible fishing piers: one adjacent Overcup Landing on the lake's northeast corner and another beside the landing just off state Highway 95. At times, fishing around sunken brushpiles in deep water near the piers' ends can produce limit stringers of 1- to 2-pound crappie.

Two exits on Interstate 40 at Morrilton provide access to the lake. Turn north at Exit 107 to follow state Highway 95 to Lakeview Landing. To reach Overcup Landing, turn north at exit 108 and follow state Highway 9 to the junction of state Highway 915. Turn west on Highway 915 to the lake. Signs mark the turnoffs on state highways.
