: Arkansas River: Morrilton - Charleys Hidden Harbor at Oppelo said fishing continues to be very good on the river. Catfishing is good around the jetties early and late in the day on live shad or bream. Drift-fishing and hitting the tips of the jetties during the middle of the day is working as well. Bream are biting well around woody cover and grass near sandbars. Bass are biting topwater lures early and late in the day, but when the sun is up, switch to a finesse worm for the best results. White bass and spotted bass are holding around jetty tips most of the day and can be caught on CC spoons.
Little Rock - Vince Miller from Fish N Stuff said crappie are biting well on minnows and jigs fished around brush in 10 to 15 feet of water. Bass are biting well in backwater areas on topwater lures early in the morning and on finesse worms and trick worms later on rocky areas and jetties. Catfishing is good on worms and cut bait near the main river.
McSwain Sports Center (501-945-2471) said below Terry lock and dam, bream are biting fairly well. Crappie are fair on minnows. Bass are biting well on crankbaits and soft-plastic worms. Catfishing is good on skipjack and shad fished near the main channel.
