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."
