Lake Catherine was created in a virtual wilderness between Hot Springs and Malvern when the Arkansas Power and Light Co. completed Remmel Dam in 1924 to generate electricity. It was the state's first major hydroelectric facility. Though 11 miles long, the lake covers a mere 1,940 acres, nestled in narrow valleys of the Ouachita Mountains.  One of Arkansas’ five diamond lakes.

Try live minnows, night crawlers, bright colored crankbaits, Carolina-rigged minnows, jerkbaits, c-10 redfins and crickets out here.
