As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation was 577.80 feet msl (flood pool – 578 msl). (Updated 4-23-2014) Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said the lake temp is in the 60s and the lake level is at full pool. Black bass are being caught on just about anything you want to throw. This is floating worm season, so that is always fun. Also try a jighead worm in the guts of pockets. A carolina rig is a great way to catch a good one and sight fishing is how most tournaments are being won. Crappie are in brush in 5 feet of water and less. White bass are still in most major creeks. (Updated 4-23-2014) Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said black bass are still very good on jig head worms and floating worms fished near shallow spawning areas. Carolina-rigged lizards and brush hogs are still producing quality sacks fished slightly deeper than the bedding bass you can see shallow. Walleye are biting well on Shad Raps and lipless crankbaits fished on main lake points. Stripers are biting well on C-10 Redfins. Try main lake points in all three river basins. Bream are fair but showing improvement and being caught around brush about 10 feet deep. Crappie are picking back up and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs. These fish are being caught 6-14 feet deep and some are spawning. Catfish are good and being caught on trotlines fished near main lake and secondary points.
