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.
