LITTLE ROCK — With the crappie spawn in full swing, many anglers have ditched their catfish poles and bass-fishing rods and headed to the bank for some of the best-tasting fish to swim in Arkansas waters.

MAYFLOWER — Anglers on Craig D. Campbell Lake Conway Reservoir will again see improved infrastructure to help them navigate its waters safely with a new phase of boat lane renovations later this month. Contractors working with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will use a specially modified barge to cut stumps under the water’s surface that have posed navigational hazards for decades and given the lake the nickname “Ol’ Stumpy,” from its anglers.

ROGERS — Anglers competing in the Beaver Lake Crappie Series L.O. VanZant Memorial Tournament on Beaver Lake did more than show off their skills last weekend, they also contributed to the future of fishing in northwest Arkansas. Thanks to a partnership between tournament directors and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, 130 crappie were placed into the lake’s nursery pond to lay their eggs and produce hundreds of thousands of crappie fingerlings that will be released into the lake later in the year.
