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. Texas rigged worms and drop shot finesse worms are working well at this time.

Walleye are still excellent. Try using a C.C. spoon near brush for these fish.

Stripers are good on live bait. Major creek mouths and main lake points on the eastern part of the lake are the best for these fish.

Bream are good and being caught on crickets and worms in 15-25 feet water near brush.

Crappie are slow and being caught on minnows or jigs in 15-18 feet of water near structure.

Catfish are still very good. Cut bait, live bait and stink bait are all producing good bags.
