The AGFC strongly recommends that adjacent landowners not use lake water for irrigation of lawns or gardens through March 1, Park had no report. Brewer Lake updated Larry Walters at Bones Bait Shop said Wednesday morning the water is rising rapidly and not much fishing is going on.
The clarity is muddy and the water has a surface temperature of 47 degrees. Level has been normal of late. Crappie reports have been good. Crappie are in feet of water and responding well to minnows and red jigs.
Fish for them around the brush piles. Bass are good around the rocky points. Fish with a crankbait. No reports on any other species. Lake Maumelle updated Jolly Rogers Marina said the lake is coming up fast.
It was 4 feet down and has come up almost 2 feet as of Wednesday morning and is expected to come up 3 more feet in the next few days. This will drive the white bass wild, Roger says. The temperature yesterday was 43 degrees in front of the marina and 54 degrees at the west end of the lake. Black bass fishing is great. Black bass are biting on shaky head worms, crankbaits, drop-shot and jerkbaits. They can be found off steep rocky banks. Drop feet in deep water.
Kentucky bass are good. Kentucky bass are being caught on hair and finesse jigs. They can be found near the edge of the creek channel. White bass are excellent. More reports are coming in this week of limits being caught. They can be found on the west end of the lake and under the Highway 10 bridge.
They are being caught on crappie minnows and soft plastic bodies with a weighted jighead. Try using chartreuse or lead as well as bladed jigs. Fish in the channel or under bridges. No reports have come in this week on bream or catfish. But they have catfish, bream, crappie and bass. But the bass have to be returned immediately back into the lake. Be sure to check the fishing regulation guide for other limits; we have plenty if you need one.
This too is a great place to take kids, Lisa says; it has a paved walking trail all the way around it. Take a kid fishing and make some great memories. It is also the same lake that the Benton Police Department holds their kids tournament around May. I always keep people posted on my Facebook page on the date and time. He was using No. He reported that they were out about 8 feet from the bank.
That was earlier in the morning, around 9 a. They ended up catching seven crappie and two catfish. That was the first time either had ever fished there.
It has pretty clear water and it's a great place to take kids to fish. But the back one, called Lake Charles, gets the most attention. It is fished under state regulations. So when the creek floods then they run in to Norma and Charles, and then when the creek goes back down the fish from the creek are in there. All this rain, I bet some new fish will be going into them lakes, so wait a couple of days after it stops raining and the creek goes back down; you will probably do good.
There have been bass, catfish, bream crappie and even yellow bass caught out of the two lakes. Lots of people ventured out to the spillway, using brooder minnows. Some weren't as lucky as others. Fishing for the walleye from a boat can be done, nut better results come from going there and getting out on the bank. Or heavy line or colored. All that extra stuff usually gets the attention of the walleye and it's like a warning to them. She suggests anglers use BB split shot, plain shank No.
My husband went this past weekend and they only came back with two walleye. They did catch some huge smallmouth and a nice Kentucky. They hit the Saline early Sunday morning a little after 5: They missed a lot. The area that they were at was a little high but not too high, the color was just right though.
They ended up running out of minnows, but they still had a great day of fishing. However, with all the rain Tuesday night and Wednesday morning the river has risen considerably, 10 feet or more, making fishing not good until it goes back down, she reported. There are not a whole lot of crappie in there but the ones she has seen caught out of there were big.
Bass are abundant in there; one of her customers has been hitting it in his kayak using No. Crickets do very well out there on the big redear bream fishing on bottom. One of her customers lives at Hurricane Lake and he fishes for bream at Lake Norrell. Some catfish are being caught off of minnows as well as on black salties and nightcrawlers. He said catfish are in deep holes. Use shad with nightcrawlers. Bass are around jetties; use worms. Crappie are in the Petit Jean River.
Float jigs in feet of water. Sauger are biting below No. Water temps are currently degrees. The bite is very, very slow. Water color is actually pretty good as of Feb. Most of the baitfish is in about 20 feet of water in backwater holes, or slackwater holes off main channel. Follow that, he suggests. But, he says, he did spend some time graphing the main river. He marked several large fish on washed-up trees just on the edge of holes and current.
Typical depth was about feet. Cody expects that fishing will get better just as soon as we get some sun and warmth. He says he will also be spending more time on Lake Conway as well this year, so be on the lookout for those reports! Water level and current are normal.
No temperature was recorded. Crappie are good in feet of water and are biting minnows and jigs. Bass are fair on crankbaits.
No reports on bream. No reports on catfish or white bass. Crappie are good and anglers are finding them in the main channel in a depth of about feet. Use black and blue jigs. They are by grass in the backwater and in the main channel near jetties. No reports on catfish. Crappie are in feet of water. Use white and chartreuse jigs.
They're mostly around the brush piles and are favoring red-chartreuse and orange jigs. The water level is high as of Wednesday morning.
Best reaction has been to minnows. Bass are good on plastic worms. Catfish reports are good. Use hot dogs for bait.
