Find Your Favorite Fishing Hole
You could spend a lifetime sport fishing the hundreds of lakes in South-Central Arkansas.  Or you could just settle for 11 of the best ones right here in Hot Springs Village.  Fishing enthusiast win either way.  Some of the largest Bass Stripers in the nation come out of Lake Ouachita, just 15 minutes from the West Village gate.  Lake Ouachita fishing is idyllic, with almost 40 thousand acres of clean, clear un-touched water that was recently named the cleanest lake in the country.  It recently played host to the World Series of Bass Fishing, the Forrest Wood Cup Championship. Lake Ouachita fishing is good enough for a spot in the "Top 100 Bass Lakes of America" list compiled by Bassmaster Magazine. All Hot Springs Village fishing lakes are stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.  You’ll find bait and fishing supplies at our local marinas.  Grab your rod and reel and let’s catch us some!
