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 fair and being caught with drop shot rigs, Texas rigged worms and pig-n-jig’s on points near structure.

Walleye are still very good and are being caught on main lake points and humps. Drop shot rigs and bottom bouncers tipped with night crawlers are very effective or try jigging a spoon for best results!

Stripers are still very 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 good and hitting worms, grubs or crickets near brush 8-15 feet deep.

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

Catfish are good and being caught with live bait or stink bait.
