Braelyn Bridgeman, age 13, and his uncle Kyle celebrate the catch of a golden rainbow trout on Memorial Day. The trout was caught right above Crooked Creek before the catch-and-release area toward Rim Shoals while they were camping with family at the White Buffalo Resort. After this catch of a lifetime, Braelyn released the trout back to the waters for maybe someone else's future fishing story. Photo provided by Joanna Bishop.

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.

Some of the trout stocked were golden rainbow trout, which have proven popular with Arkansas anglers the last few years.
