Clouds are slowly starting to break over Lake Dardanelle. Lots more fish catches are starting to be reported around the lake, with some teams reporting their 6 fish limits.

Just left one of the McKendree University boats that has a limit of 3 fish for 9-10lbs. Clouds have come back in very thick and temps have fallen back to the 50’s.

Tough bite for most of the teams we have talked to. Reaction baits still seem to be what most teams are going with. Water temp is 60-64 degrees, air temp is in the 60’s with lots of clouds. The one that got away, always a tough pill to swallow.

Anglers fueling up before launch!

Saturday March 25th, 2017 6:41am

Talking to the anglers this morning before launch and everyone is wondering what the 1.2 inches of rain that fell last nigh will do to the lake. Being on Arkansas River Lake Dardanelle is effected more by rain and rising water than some area lakes. Anglers will have to adjust for rising water and water more stained than they saw in practice.

As anglers launch this morning onto Lake Dardenelle one thing that’s a major topic of conversation this week is that seven of the top ten ranked teams according to Cabela’s School of Year rankings are present in this field.

It will be interesting  to see if the top four teams who are not from this area can hold their positions or if some of the teams from the middle part of the nation can make a move up in the standings.
