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 good and being caught near structure. Try a pig and jig or drop shot a finesse worm for some good action near structure.

Walleye are still slow. C.C. spoons, jigged vertically, or drop shotting a live night crawler may be the best bet for producing some fish.

Stripers are good on Bama rigs. Concentrate on major creek basin areas for locating these fish.

Bream - No report.

Crappie are excellent. They are being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs at depths around 12-16 feet deep.

Catfish are fair and being caught on rod and reel fished near structure with night crawlers and cut bait. Jug lines are effective in these same areas.
