    possibly the warm water discharge at sooner lake.I have read on the arkansas site that they have been catching them at the nuke plant in russellville.I catch mine in the spring and summer below eufala and kerr dams,then freeze em for fall and winter fishing.I imagine fresh is better,but I ahve had real good luck with the frozen.when i lived in little rock,a bait sore named hatchett jacks,by murry lock and dam,sold it frozen for 3.50 a pound!

    There are a few that get caught below Keystone and the Zinc Dam in the summer ,but there very few and far between. There in the Arkansas Navagation Channel...closest spot to catch them in any real quanity would be L @ D 16 at Webber Falls. There a super bait when found in the water your fishing but IMO won't do much better than shad in area's that don't have any.
