the most consistent season for large striped bass, March thru early may, is booking up fast on lake Ouachita. Need to make your reservations now. For the best chance at a real trophy 40 pound class fish, make sure your guide uses live bait which we do.

Just saying Happy New Years seems so Hollow.
 I started thinking about my clients and about the true depth of my gratitude which has created an awareness of all the amazing things they brought me this Year.
My work has allows me to meet awesome, inspiring people, young and old. Some whose trip may have been their last.
I’m so fortunate.
Thank you to my clients, colleagues, friends and competitors for all you do for me.
Here's wishing all of you a Happy, Healthy 2015

Minn Kota has introduce the worlds most advanced Trolling Motor, the fully automatic Ulterra. Never have to touch your trolling motor again. The Ulterra features Automatic in the water and retract, power trim a redesigned foot pedal and Universal Sonar 2 and your choice of i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link.
The first Minn Kota trolling motor I ever owned was a 24 volt trolling motor purchased in the 70s and still today I use only Minn Kota motors in over 200 trips a year.
I endorse very few products. but the minn kota line is one I would recommend to anyone.

As of 12/29/30 Lake Ouachita water level is 577.6 ft.
I get asked is the lake low or high all the time. The answer of course is "it depends on rain fall" Lake ouachita was designed and built as a flood control Lake first for the lower Ouachita river valley. Second is generation of power for the Southwest Power Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy. The top of the flood stage or flood poole if you prefer is 578' above sea level. Once the lake reaches that point or above and depending on the amount of water in the lake and the condition of the water levels down the Ouachita river,  rain fall and expected rain fall plus energy demands, water is released or held. So the water level will fluctuate year to year. In the last five years the average fluctuation has been 15.60 feet. The high water monts in that same period have been in March, May 3 times and June. In the same 5 year period the lowest water levels were recorded in January twice, December Twice and once in October. To learn more go to  Lake Ouachita Average Lake Level By Year and Month.
Information on Lake Ouachita Average Lake Level and flucations by year and month from 2005 thru 2013.

The surface water Temperature of Lake Ouachita reached 50 degrees today for the first time in 2015 (February 14th). We have an Arctic blast coming in the 15th that most likely will keep the temperature in the high 40s a little longer. Unlike last year when the lake temperature stayed unseasonably cold, this year is looking normal for the spawning season.

A question I get asked a lot about Striper fishing on Lake Ouachita is, When is the best time to catch a trophy Striper? First lets get the definition of a "Trophy Striper." For our description on Lake Ouachita we will use the 30 pound mark. Your trophy could be a 20 pound or a 60 pound striper. To start with let me say a 30+ fish can be caught in any month. But for our discussion we will focus on The CONSISTENTLY BEST TIME over the years to catch a Big Striper. since stripers don't know what month of the year their in, what determines when the big bite is consistence? The answer is WATER TEMPERATURE. Water temperature from 50 to 65 degrees in the late winter to early spring. So Corresponding months for this water temperature on Lake Ouachita is Late February to Early June.

There you have it, the most consistence time to catch a trophy Striper on Ouachita is Late February to early June with the water temp between 50 and 65 degrees. 

Now the next Question is, What type of bait/lure and presentation do you use?
I won't answer that on today, but a clue is "It's Alive.
Book a late winter/spring Striper guided trip on Ouachita early those days fill fast in the new year. Give me a call 501-318-3092 or visit at the link below.

As the weather and water Temperatures cool down on Lake Ouachita in December and January the striped bass fishing will be heating up. One of the best days of top water action I have ever had was on a December 13th just ahead of a cold front.

The Striped Bass are on the move this week on Lake Ouachita. Fishing is excellent around mid lake. Live bait, especially on down rigs, continues to be the top producer, with umbrella rigs second. Early morning and late evening are the best times to be on the water. Some early morning spot breaking with fish being caught on top water lures is being reported.

Stuart Wooldridge AGFC Biologist in charge of the Lake Ouachita Striped Bass Program said they got all the striper eggs needed by the Hulsey Fish Hatchery in Hot Springs, Arkansas in 3 nights of netting on lake Ouachita in April of this year.

Stuart said the collection process of  stripers went much smoother than recent years. The stripers will be taken to the Hulsey Fish Hatchery where the dedicated AGFC team will tirelessly work 24-hours a day.

Once the staff has fertilized the eggs they are moved to hatching jars and after about 3 days the eggs will hatch. Then they will be transferred to nursery ponds and raise to fingerling size. Once they reach fingerling size. they will be seined and loaded in hatchery trucks to be stocked in the Arkansas Lakes.
Fingerlings will be ready in June. Lake Ouachita is scheduled to receive 110,000 Striped Bass.
