CENTERTON STATE FISH HATCHERY
CENTERTON STATE FISH HATCHERY
About the size of a large farm pond, Lake Bentonville is tailor-made for bankfishing. There's no boat ramp here, because boats aren't needed. Anglers find plenty of fishing action sitting in lawnchairs on the bank. Visitors can fish from the shoreline around the entire lake.

Lake Bentonville is first and foremost a catfish lake. The Centerton State Fish Hatchery is just 4 miles away, and when brood catfish grow too large to fit in the hatchery's 25 gallon spawning barrels, they're often stocked here. The lake has produced catfish up to 35 pounds.

Lake Bentonville also supports a fair population of largemouth bass, bluegills, and crappies, although fishing pressure on this small impoundment limits the numbers of these fish available to anglers.


Location
Centerton State Fish Hatchery is located near Bella Vista, Bentonville and Fayetteville
