Jonathan Still put his kayak to good use on Overcup Lake in Conway County, hooking this nice crappie. Lacey Williams of Lakeview Landing at Overcup, who provided the photo, says crappie are moving in slowing, and some are still out in deeper spots of Overcup. Jigs are the go-to bait right now. While they're also still waiting on fish to move back toward the dock, the angling around the levee "is great," Lacey said. Lakeview Landing is off Arkansas Highway 95.

LITTLE ROCK – A study more than five years in the making, complete with mapping and detailed observations of microhabitat characteristics, has been conducted by a University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff researcher that will tell anglers more than they’ve ever known about the spawning habits of wild brown trout in the Greers Ferry Dam tailwater of the Little Red River.
