Lake Information for Millwood Lake


Millwood Lake is a lake in southwestern Arkansas, United States. It is located 9 miles (14 km) from Ashdown. The lake is formed from the damming of the point where the Little River and the Saline River meet.

A series of boat lanes meander through timber, marshes, and oxbow cutoffs making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing haven. Famous for bass tournaments, this 29,260-acre lake abounds in largemouth, catfish and crappie. Spring and fall offer anglers great crappie fishing here, and catfish and bream fishing in summer. Bird watching is another popular activity here because of the lake's variety of year-round inhabitants, and wintering eagles.

Facilities and Parks: 

There are twelve launch ramps located around the lake to provide access to this fishing haven. All twelve launch ramps require a day use fee of $3.00 or you may purchase an Annual Day Use Pass for $30 that is valid for the entire year. Boats are not allowed inside the buoy line of the dam. There are “boat lanes” that mark paths on the lake that boats may follow to navigate around the lake. The “boat lanes” are composed of pilings driven into the lake to make paths. There are signs posted giving directions to different areas of the lake and to mark the river.

Fishing Description: 

Millwood is a superb place to fish, mainly due to its vast acreage of submerged timber that make excellent homes for the many varieties of fish in the lake. Millwood has also been known as one of the best bass fishing lakes in the United States. Every year it is home of many bass fishing tournaments and fishing derbies, all in search of Millwood's lunker largemouth bass.

The submerged timber also provides an excellent habitat for white striped and spotted bass, channel and flathead catfish, bluegill, sunfish, buffalo carp and drum.
