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 top water baits and spy baits on points near structure. Drop shot rigs with finesse worms are producing quality 'Spots' when fished near brush.

Walleye are slow. 3/4 oz. C.C. spoons jigged vertically near structure are the best bet for results.

Stripers are fair on live bait and hair jigs. The best areas are main lake points and humps for locating these fish.

Bream are slow. Try worms, grubs or crickets near brush 15-25 feet deep.

Crappie are good. They are being caught near brush with small spoons, minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 20-30 feet deep.

Catfish are slow and being caught with night crawlers, cut bait or stink bait.
