- Sadly, there are NO Smallmouth in Arkabutla Lake. It is the wrong type of habitat. Not cool enough and not rocky enough.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Spring Fishing Tip Provided by Guide Chatt Martin:Though the redbud bloom always turned out to be a good guideline, we now know that when the water gets to about 55 degrees and the days start getting longer, crappies come in to the bank to spawn (breed). They're very easy to catch during this period, as long as you’ve got some minnows or small jigs and bobbers, a gravel bottom (rocks about the size of a pea are just right), and something sticking up off the bottom like a tree, a dock piling, or a brushpile. If you're not sure, just look for a place where the bank has been trampled down by all the other fishermen! Creeks and rivers that don't have much current are still just as good places to start as they were when I was a kid. If you're fishing a lake or a pond, start on the north shore where the water warms fastest. Remember that crappies always feed upward, so if you're in 3 feet of water, put your jig or minnow about a foot under your bobber.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they aren’t 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.

- I don't know if they are striped bass in artlabutla but I do know what to use.You need to use
crankbaits like spoons and rapala lures they are more than likely if they are in artlabutla going to be
swimmming in the middle or the deep part of artlabutla.

Arkabutla Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you really want to do trout fishing you are either strolling in middle or the deeps of the lake.Or you
can go to the river system connecting to artlabutla lake.And what I woulda use is,well first let me tell
you about strolling for trout.You need to use like squid jig or a spoon.Spoon to me are pretty
effective for strolling for trout in artlabutla lake.And for the river you need to use spinning or fly tackle
and need to use stuff like flies,(for fly fishing)crankbaits,spinnerbaits,and stick baits.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full 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.
