Summer Fishing

By Seasons

Summer Bass Fishing in Arkansas Going summer fishing in Arkansas? Fill your stringer with bream and redear in June, when wade fishing is good. Hot summer nights are perfect for catfishing.

Lookin' for a fight? Bowfin, a.k.a. grinnel, is best during warm months in the rivers and oxbow lakes, bayous and swamps of eastern and southern Arkansas. While it's not an often sought fish by most anglers, it can add some hot action to the middle of your day when panfishing action tapers off.

Summer bass fishing in Arkansas is a blast! For intense, top water fun with white bass, try summer bass fishing anywhere clear water is coming into a river, tailwaters of a lock and dam channel, and large man-made reservoirs such as Beaver Lake.

Enjoy summer walleye fishing with minnows, jibs, crankbaits and spoons in Arkansas. Fishing for walleye in Arkansas's moderate to shallow waters during the summer months is recommended, especially in waters with gravel or rocky bottoms.
