Default Fly Fishing lake Catherine, AR

Hello all; glad to be a new addition to this community!
I live in Austin, TX and thus am accustomed to catching LMB, redbreast, crappie, bluegil and the like. However, I will be camping in Lake Catherine state park in Arkansas this coming weekend and am currently trying to get myself as prepared as possible. I've spoken with a few friends who have some experience fly fishing Lake Catherine and they've given me some pointers but I am hoping to gain a little more insight from anyone who will lend it
So far my list of equipment for the trip consists of;

9'0 6wt Cabelas TLr w/ Prestige 2 reel

8' 1/2 5wt Pflueger w/cahill reel

small assortment of poppers

small assortment of clousers

some varied streamers

different top water and some midwaters

Based on recent fishing reports and suggestions from friends, I plan to target trout, walleye, bass and stripers (in one very specific area of the lake)

Any suggestions on flies, tactics areas to fish would be GREATLY appreciated.

James J.
