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]

Lake Dardanelle Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another.
