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 very active and being caught schooling and near structure. The top water bite is still very good on all areas of the lake. Try a bone colored super spook jr. or run a 1/6 oz. white roostertail through schooling fish for some great action.

Walleye are still good. C.C. spoons, jigged vertically, or drop shotting a live night crawler are still the best methods for catching these fish.

Stripers are good on live bait or slow trolling shad colored crank baits. The top water bite has started for these fish; be prepared with a big Zara spook or a C-10 redfin.

Bream - No report.

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

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