About Lake Picthorne near Cabot

Tommy L. Sproles Pickthorne Lake is one of three public lakes greater than 300 acres located in the densely populated central Arkansas area. Because of its size, accessibility, and close proximity to the cities of Jacksonville and Cabot, Pickthorne Lake is a popular lake for many anglers. Aside from typical warm water species anglers also have a unique chance to catch stocked saugeye in the lake. Catfish have been stocked in the lake as well. There are some stands of timber along the edges of the lake, providing good fish habitat for both bank and boat anglers.” –AGFC
