: Arkansas River: Pinebluff - The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Bass Team said water temperatures are in the mid to upper 60s in backwater areas and around 60 degrees in the main channel of the river. Water visibility is around 1 foot within Lake Langhofer, and backwater areas. The main channel is muddy from the recent rains with visibility less than half a foot. There is flow in the river, but it is still at a mild rate. Bass are moving into post-spawn locations in backwaters and transitioning from sandy flats back to their typical rocky shorelines. Good stringers of fish have been weighed in recent tournaments, being caught with small, medium-diving crankbaits and jigs.
Little Rock Pool - McSwain Sports Center (501-945-2471) said crappie fishing is good on minnows and jigs in the backwater areas. Bass can be caught on crankbaits and soft-plastic worms. Catfishing has been great on skipjack below Terry Lock and Dam.
