Default Lake Ouachita:

By Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
Lake Ouachita: Mountain Harbor Resort said the water temperature ranges from 60- to 68-degrees. The lake level is 576.48 feet, and the water is clearing. Largemouth bass are schooling. For the best results, try using Roostertails, Boy Howdies or Super Flukes on the main lake points and creek channels. Walleye are slow; there are reports of these fish being caught over or near large moss flats and humps. Jigging spoons or jigs tipped with minnows are still the most effective. Try water depths of 18 to 30 feet. Stripers are still excellent on live bait, hair jigs or top-water C-10 redfins. These fish are still located around main points and rock bluffs near or in the river channels. All areas of the lake are still getting good reports. Bream are still slow on crickets and worms. Try water depths of 10 to 20 feet. Crappie are good and are being caught over brush piles and moss flats using feather jigs, 2-inch grubs and minnows. Try main lake points and large moss flats 10- to 25-feet deep. The best colors are white, silver and Tennessee shad. Catfish are still fair and being caught with night crawlers, stink bait, hot dogs and live minnows.

Stripers are hitting on live bait, hair jigs or silver spoons. These fish are staging in pockets and old creek channels.and are moving up the river channels.

Default Lake Ouachita

Lake Ouachita State Park Marina said the lake is clear and about 10 feet low. Bream fishing is good on the outside edge of the moss beds on crickets in 15 to 18 feet of water. Striped bass are breaking early in the morning until one hour past daylight. Most of the stripers are between 6 and 12 pounds and are hitting small topwaters. Spotted bass are holding on deep rocky points and secondary points in 20 to 30 feet of water and are biting well on 4-inch worms and crawfish. Catfish are biting excellently on chicken livers anywhere you can find flowing water.

Lake Ouachita: As of Wednesday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake?s elevation at 567.58 feet MSL.

Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is clear and the surface temperature ranges from 70 to 76 degrees. Largemouth bass are very good early and late. Bass can be caught with top-water frogs fished over the moss or with a jig-and-pig in the moss. The floating worm bite is improving; try orange and watermelonseed trick worms. Spotted bass are excellent on live crawfish in 18-25 feet of water near or in brush piles. Walleye are still good with reports of these fish being caught on main lake points in brush piles. Silver spoons are the most effective. Try water 25-40 feet deep. Stripers are good on live bait, spoons or hair jigs. They are being caught on all areas of the lake. White bass are starting to school on the west end of the lake. Bream are fair on crickets or worms. These fish are best in water depths of 15-22 feet. Crappie are very good. The best locations are still around brush piles and moss flats using feather jigs, 2-inch grubs and minnows. Try main lake points and large moss flats 15-35 feet deep. Catfish are good and still being caught on live bait or cut bait in water 10-20 feet deep.
Lake Ouachita State Park Marina said not many people are fishing lately. The action should start picking up soon.
