Little Rock, Lake Conway & Lake Maumelle
The folks at
Bates Field and Stream said bream fishing has been excellent at
Lake Conway using worms, wax worms, crickets or a brown, black or
chartreuse Danamax bream jig. Crappie fishing is still good,
although the fish are smaller around stick-ups and cypress trees
with minnows. Bass are fair with watermelon colored lizards and
buzz baits. Catfishing is fair with bream or trotline minnows.
They also mentioned over at Toad Suck Lock Dam fishermen are
snagging some catfish and spoonbills below the dam. Anglers are
also catching some catfish around the rock jetties on the river.
The folks at
River Valley Bait on the Little Maumelle River said the river has
been muddy and the bream and redear fishing is excellent with
fair using minnows. Bass are biting good on spinnerbaits,
crickets and minnows. Catfishing is excellent and they are biting
all types of baits. Lake Maumelle black bass are on the banks and
have been spawning. Crankbaits, lizards and spinner baits are
working well in the early morning hours or at sunset. Kentucky
bass have moved into shallower water and are going after plastic
worms. Crappie are hot and can be found in 5 to 10 feet of
water. The crappie are hitting small minnows. Bream have moved
into shallow water and are being taken on crickets and worms.
Catfishing is improved and they are being taken on prepared baits
in 10 to 15 feet of water. White bass are up the river and have
begun to be caught again.
RECENTLY CAPTURED IN LITTLE ROCK
A black bear
reported in the Heights neighborhood of Little Rock was recently
captured without incident. A sighting had the bear near Cantrell
Road and the I-430 interchange when the Arkansas Game and Fish
Commission was called to help capture the bear. After a short
search, the bear was spotted and was shot with a tranquilizer
dart. The bear was tagged and data collected before it was
released into the Ouachita Mountains. There had been reported
several sightings of this bear - at a dumpster at the St. John’s
Seminary, on North Grandview Street and in the Foxcroft area
eating bird feed. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission officials
said it was a little unusual that a bear would be in such a
populated area. The bear weighed approximately 155 pounds and was
in good health. The bear was probably in search of food. There
are reports of bears in and around Little Rock every year.
Arkansas has about 3,000 bears, mostly in the Ozark and Ouachita
mountain areas. Bears were once so plentiful, that they were
hunted commercially, and Arkansas was known as the Bear State.
But nearly all were wiped out by the early 20th
century. A restocking program in the 1950’s and 1960’s brought in
254 bears from Minnesota and Manitoba, Canada making the state’s
black bear population one of the nation’s most successful
