Default BEAVER LAKE ARKANSAS REPORTS

Beaver producing fish both hybrids and stripers We kept
depths mixed and caught fish on all rods ranging from 5 feet deep to
40 ft. The weather this weekend was cloudy, cooler and quite windy
for Beaver this time of the year.
Fish were caught in 40' of water and 150' of water (channel).
Cloudy overcast days produce well for stripers.

Beaver laker Arkansas

Hybrids to eight pounds between 30' and 40' trolling slow over the trees.

From J Kustel member Oklahoma striper association
One reputable guide I talked to while packing up said, "Drop your

shad to 60 feet over an intersection of some type in deep water 100-

150 where an old road bed or creek channel intersects the main

channel and let em' sit there and try not to move too much. The fish

will eventually cruise by and come up a long way out of that deep

water to grab your baits" He had 5 fish over 20 lbs. in his boat.

Default Beaver Lake Arkansas

By Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
Nov 28, 2004

Beaver Lake: Southtown Sporting Goods said the lake temperature is 59- to 60-degrees. The water is lightly stained all the way to the Hwy 12 bridge, and the rivers are muddy. The lake level is 2 feet above normal pool. Bream fishing is good using crickets. Crappie fishing is good using minnows. Bass fishing is good fishing shallow with spinner baits and jigs. Stripers are biting really well in both the Rocky Branch and Point 12 areas. Try using a ? - to 1-ounce Roadrunner, top-water lures, or troll with live shiners or shad. Some good whites and hybrids have been mixed in with the stripers. Hickory Creek Marina said there?s been a 2-ft. water rise, and the water is off-colored. A clear pattern for black bass has not been apparent. However, try spinner baits and crankbaits on the flats and spoons. As fish acclimate to the rising current, look shallow. Some striped bass are in the rivers, but they are scattered and in short supply. The water temperature is 60.9 degrees, putting it in the proper range for the migration. Also, the current in the upper lake has been significant to trigger additional migrants. Several fish have been observed from the dock. Again, there haven?t been many good reports, but there has been some success trolling with crankbaits. Try looking in every major channel bend south of the Hwy 12 Bridge near an adjacent flat. The larger fish are usually scattered. Early and late in the day, look on the flats, and fish deep at mid-day. Crappie are on the poor side of fair because it is difficult to find consistent concentrations. For the best results, try fishing with minnows from 12- to 15-feet deep. Many fishermen have complained about short fish (some allege catching 1 "keeper" to 10 "shorts"). Whites have been moving day to day. Try fishing at water intake points like Piney Creek, Point 12, Kelly Creek, Sidewalk Hole and Wooley's Island. There has been some surface activity both early and late in the day. Use anything white or yellow that is about 1? - inches long. Jigging spoons (1- to ?-ounce) are producing fish in the channels. The incidental catch of catfish continues to be awesome. There have been some major fish caught around schools of shad while fishing for other species, particularly whites and stripers. Large minnows are the catfishermen?s bait of choice. A slip bopper and minnow combination at 30-feet deep is the most popular terminal tackle. Bream have moved deep.

Beaver Tailwaters: Striper fishing is hot in the War Eagle area of Beaver Lake as well as up in the Indian Creek area

The lake is clear and at normal pool. Stripers are biting on live shad in the river arm.

Hi Koolaid
Hope you catch one on Beaver and give us a first hand report.
Foghorn reports are DNR ranger reports and tackle shop press reports.
