Lake Overcup

Lake Overcup is a 1,025-acre lake located just north of Morrilton in Conway County, Arkansas. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) completed the construction of this impoundment on Overcup Creek in 1963. The main recreation at this lake is crappie fishing.


AGFC records indicate that about 30 percent of visiting anglers focus on catching crappie in this lake. The average Lake Overcup crappie weighs about eleven ounces, and the crappie limit is twenty. Although bank fishing is popular here, some of the best fishing is in waters accessible only by boat.
