Locations And Strategies For Catching Arkansas Walleye

Sep 15, 2008
There are many areas in Arkansas for fishing walleye. There are different strategies for each area, but one thing always remains the same. The walleye light to be in locations with low light.

The weather conditions are going to affect the outcome of the days catch as well. Anglers in the Arkansas area have some prime walleye fishing locations. The seasons that are the best are spring, summer and fall. The cooler months of winter are good for fishing, but the best time is right after the spring spawn. This is the prime time for walleye fishing. The fish are done with the spawn and starting to eat more than before the spawn.

Greer's Ferry Lake has some incredible walleye fishing. The best way to bait the walleye is with a jig and a minnow or with a jig and a night crawler. The walleye are hiding around the steep drops in about thirty feet of water. The smaller rock formation on the lake is another area the walleye can be caught. If you look for the schools of shad, the walleye will be close by. The walleye seem to be slower during the summer, but pick up after August around the shallower waters. Sometimes trolling works, but most of the time, it is more important to vertical drop the bait. The biggest fish taken out of Greer's Ferry Lake was twenty-two plus pounds.

Lake Ouachita is located by Hot Springs and has become quite popular for walleye fishing. The walleye seem to be slower during the summer, but pick up after August around the shallower waters. Trolling the lake works well during the day hours, but at dusk, you should move to the shallower waters by the shorelines.

The months of September and October are great for walleye. They are starting to feed for the winter. Although the temperatures do not get cold like northern states, the walleye still feed for the change in seasons.

Bull Shoals Lake is located near Mountain Home and is said to have some great walleye fishing. The best way to fish is with night crawlers by the underwater rock formations and the weed beds. Bull Shoals has always been popular for fishing, but the walleye fishing picked up in the last few years. You can fish at sunup or at sundown and find the walleye biting. Days with bright sunlight will mean you have to move to the deeper parts of the lake. A map will help you move about the lake and nowhere the underwater structures are located.

Lake Greeson is another lake to fish for walleye. The nice thing about this lake is you can take a charter and use your GPS to mark the spots where you get some bites. This means that you can go back on your own and fish the same areas. The fish are biting at minnows and night crawlers. There are a few good charters to use, but you can easily find the walleye by asking the local bait shops. It seems as if the anglers are always sharing different ways and locations for catching walleye.
