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 good and being caught with drop shot rigs, Texas rigged worms and pig-n-jig’s on points near structure in deeper water. Horny toads, buzz baits, poppers and chugger baits are working when fished shallow near structure.

Walleye are good and are still being caught on main lake points and humps. 3/4 oz. C.C. spoons jigged vertically near structure are producing the best results.

Stripers are good on live bait and hair jigs. The best areas are main lake points and humps on the eastern end of the lake for locating these fish.

Bream are still good and hitting worms, grubs or crickets near brush 15-25 feet deep.

Crappie are slow. They are being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 15-20 feet deep.

Catfish are very good and being caught with night crawlers or stink bait.
