 - Anglers looking for bass on Arkabutla Lake are finding success hitting largemouth bass on spinner baits or soft plastics on main lake points with bushes, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers weekly fishing report.
The Corps reports most of fish caught are less than a couple of pounds, however.
However, the best fishing luck has been for white bass found schooling off sandy main lake points where they will bite small, shad-imitating lures, such as jigs, tail spinners, or small crank baits.
The Corps reports that crappie fishing has been improving, somewhat. Anglers are spider rigging jigs and/or minnows and fishing about 8-10 feet deep in about 10-18 feet of water, mostly on the south side of the main lake. Some have been pole fishing around the green bushes in similar depths.

The best reports for catfish recently have been using stink baits or night crawlers in inflowing water in the river and creeks.
Fishermen will find the best luck in the outlet channel will be for white bass or catfish in the faster water.
