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 bassare still good and still being caught with Zara spooks, flukes and other top water baits over main lake and secondary points.

Walleye are very good and are being caught on main lake and secondary points. Trolling or casting a jerk bait over humps and points 10-15 feet deep is producing some fish. Try trolling a #5 Flicker Shad by Berkley for best results!

Stripers are still good on live bait and top water C-10 redfins. The best reports are still coming from the Cedar Fourche, Bird Island and main lake areas for locating these fish.

Bream - are still very good and hitting worms, grubs or crickets near brush 20-25 feet deep. We have had a couple of reports of quality fish being found shallow this last week!

Crappie are fair. They are being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 10-16 feet deep.

Catfish are still very good and being caught with live bait. Trot line minnows or night crawlers on jug lines or trot lines have been the most effective.
