Arkansas River: (Little Rock Pool) Vince Miller at Fish N Stuff (501-834-5733) said the closure of the Broadway Bridge between Little Rock and North Little Rock for construction has turned off the fishing in his area, with few to any anglers.
McSwain Sports Center (501-945-2471) said water clarity is clear and at a normal level and current. No temperature was recorded. Bream are fair on worms and crickets. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs. Bass are fair on spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Catfish reports were poor in the Clear Lake area, but were good near Terry Lock and Dam, where the clarity was muddy. Near the dam, worms and blood bait were getting catfish bites. Bass were also hitting topwater baits along with spinnerbaits and crankbaits in the dam area.
Little Maumelle River - River Valley Marina (501-517-1250) said water was clear and surface temperature was at 70 degrees. Level and current were normal. Bass fishing was excellent using spinnerbaits, crankbaits and topwater lures. Bream bite was good on worms and crickets. Crappie were good on minnows and jigs. Catfishing was good using worms, blood bait and shad. White bass fishing, like that of largemouth bass, was excellent.
Pinebluff - The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Bass Team reported water temperatures are around 70 degrees and visibility is about 1 foot. Black bass are biting fairly well now that the water is cooling a bit and there is less fishing pressure. Both small and larger fish are being caught on wind-blown banks in Lake Langhofer that have baitfish activity. Anglers are having best success with squarebill crankbaits and small-bladed spinnerbaits in shad colors. Good-sized fish are also being caught with jigs worked around and in woody cover and brush.
