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 to good. Pig and jigs are effective near structure and deep diving crankbaits or spinnerbaits are effective in the same areas.

Walleye are still good. C.C. spoons jigged vertically are the best method for these fish.

Trolling crank baits near main lake points and structure is still a good technique right now.

Stripers are very good on live bait or down rigging hair jigs. Try main lake points and humps.

Bream are still fair and being caught around brush in the 15-25' range near brush with crickets and worms.

Crappie are good and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs. These fish are being caught 12-20 feet deep.

Catfish are good and being caught on rod and reel fished in big bays and major creek basins with night crawlers or stink bait and jug lines are effective in these same areas.
