Lake Dardanelle: The Arkansas River has for many years been popular with fisherm en for its large catfish. Record Flathead, Blues, and Channel are caught using many methods. White bass are native to the river, with adults traveling in schools and feeding near the surface. Bream, crappie, and largemouth bass are stocked in the lake and provide excellent sport fishing. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission studies of bass tournaments across the state revealed that Lake Dardanelle is the most productive bass fishery in the state of Arkansas. With no closed season and mild winters, fishing is good year round. Located near the Ozark and Ouachita National Forests, the area has an abundance of wildlife. There is in-season hunting for deer, turkey, water fowl and other small game. The success rate of the growing Canada Goose Season is proof of the excellent breeding ground the lake and river provides. [Lake Dardanelle. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 02/03/2008]...turtles.
