Stocked To Reel In The Record Breakers

Lake Ouachita's bounty lies in more than her beauty and recreational opportunities. Beneath, in her clear, clean waters lie a wealth and variety of sporting fish. Stocked each year with young schools, Ouachita abounds in large mouth bass, bream, catfish, cool water walleye and even rainbow trout (mainly at the dam and spillway). And there's always a good chance of pulling in one of our lake's huge trophy stripers.

Our professional guide service offers not only the best in equipment and experience, they're also wonderful sources of the folklore and traditions of Lake Ouachita. Championship tournament winners, they understand the ways of the bass and the brim, the lure of the great stripers and they know all the best "hidey holes."

Black Bass Walleye Stripers Bream Crappie Catfish

Black bass are still good. Texas rigged worms and drop shot worms are producing some quality catches right now. Top water action is still good with Zara Spooks, Zoom super flukes and buzz baits and a black 3⁄4 oz. spinnerbait is working well at night.

Walleye are still very good. Drop shot and bottom bouncing live night crawlers is the best method for these fish and make sure you have a 3⁄4 oz. C.C. spoon for vertical jigging tied on to a bait casting rod.

Stripers are fair on live bait. Try main lake points and humps.

Bream are good and being caught around brush in the 15-25' range near brush.

Crappie are fair and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs. These fish are being caught 15-20 feet deep.

Catfish are good and being caught on trot lines and jug lines fished in big bays and major creek basins.
