Well's Lake: Ft. Smith


Recommended Posts

Just FYI to any of you in the river valley area. Arkansas Game and Fish have stocked Well's Lake at the Janet Huckabee Nature Center with rainbows for the winter months. I have seen some taken just below the surface on flies, and they are hitting most glitter power baits (chartreuse is hot they say). Not sure where the best place to fish is. The only water movement is along the roadside at the dock/spillway.

Update:

Loaded up at daybreak with my son to try my luck there at Wells. No action near spillway/dock area. Lots of action in middle of the lake and at the far end past the new footbridge. Talked to a few guys, seems like the rainbows were taking canned corn or pink powerbait. We caught nada, but had 2 hits and saw a heavily used gametrail. Six year olds just love finding tracks.
