- Sadly, there are NO Smallmouth in Arkabutla Lake. It is the wrong type of habitat. Not cool enough and not rocky enough.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Arkabutla Lake at 44 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Smallmouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Smallmouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Arkabutla Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Arkabutla Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you thing white bass fishing is hard to you and if you are having hard times finding the white bass
in the lake than go to the spillway in artlabutla or the outlet channel.I have fished there at times and
catch like 10 sometimes around 20!What you need to use on the spillway is little stick bait that
represents a blue squid and a yellow squid that is what you need to use.I forgot the name which I am
very sorry but what you are looking for white bass fishing is a little stick bait that look like yellow or
blue squid.I am really sorry if you didn't catch fish on it but I do know I used it caught a ton of them in
the spillway.

Arkabutla Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
