Mike Eakle landed this nice catfish caught off Blackburn's Resort and Boat Rental's dock on Norfork Lake using a live shiner. While black bass, stripers, crappie and now some nice walleye have been heavy targets for anglers of lake on Norfork, the catfish are biting well, too, as resort owner Steven Street notes from Blackburn's.

Mrs. Willie Bethea of Camden, a client of Millwood Lake Guide Service, was fishing with her husband and enjoyed the crappie bite on Millwood this past week, despite the darkening skies and impending rain. Guide Mackey Harvin took his clients to the crappie hot spots. Warmer temperatures helped the bite, and crappie have begun migrating to cypress trees for their spring spawning ground movements at Millwood. A few nice 2- to 2.5-pound crappie have been hitting jigs and minnows over the last week. They've also been hitting bass anglers' baits, such as spinnerbaits and lizards, which fishing the cypress stands. Photo provided by Mike Siefert.

Mark Crawford guided Hannah (no last name available) to a nice rainbow catch on the Spring River this past week. The Spring River has a lot of water now, making wading difficult, but the boating anglers are finding trout biting great when they add a little more weight to get the fly down. Also, Mark notes that the campgrounds have all opened for the summer season, and  they'll provide more wade access when the high water drops. Trout stockings have add more catch possibilities, too, he says.
