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 fair and still being caught with Texas rigged worms, Pop R's and buzz baits. Brush piles on main lake and secondary points are producing the best results when fished with Texas rigged plastics. Drop shot finesse worms are working good for 'spots.'

Walleye are excellent and are being caught trolling shallow running crank baits and jigging CC spoons.

Stripers are fair on live bait. The central and east areas of the lake are the hottest right now.

Bream are
still good. Crickets, maggots and red worms are best fished 12 - 25 feet deep.

Crappie are still fair. Try using minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 20-30 feet deep near brush.

Catfish are very good. Try live bait or cut bait in depths of 15-20 feet.
