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.

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.
