    Planning on going back out to the old lock 8 site on the ouchita river early in the morning.

    Gonna leave real early and hope to get there before anyone else does so I can get on the rock dam and fish at the bottom of it.

    The old loc 8 site is just a rock dam that blocks off the river so they could put in the new loc 8 (Thatcher lock and dam) on the ouchita near Calion Ark.

    That far back there is not any water movement as such but there is some good looking spots and bank fishing is easily accessible.

    I will be using multiple baits so the fish will have a full menu from treated hot dogs, worms, liver, and live and cut bream.

    Wish me luck.

    No John the Old lock 8 isn't part of Felsenthal. The road you turn off of to get to it is on hwy 167 N between El Dorado and Hampton. It's almost right across from where you turn to go to Champanoillle creek.
