Conditions : Beaver Lake: Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said water level is high and the water is clear. No temperature was recorded. Bass appear to be in their summertime slow period. Reports were fair, with topwaters getting reaction early in the day and spinnerbaits and crankbaits working late in the day. Also, plastic worms got some reaction. Best bet is to work the brush piles. Bream, though, are good and biting both redworms and crickets. Crappie are fair. They’ve been slow in the daytime, with trolling crankbaits the best way to get a reaction. Catfish are fair on trotlines, limblines and hitting thrown live baits. Try using worms, blood bait or prepared bait.

Tailwaters - Guide Austin Kennedy (479-244-0039) said the trout bite has picked up quite a bit this week. Most trout are being caught between Spider Creek and Parkers Bottom. Trout are biting on various ¼-ounce spoons, various PowerBaits fished with light terminal tackle. One particular thing noted, a lot of these fish have been quite a bit bigger. The biggest one caught this week weighed 8 pounds. However, 2-pound trout have also been caught in nice numbers. The water temperatures in the area mentioned above has been between 55-58 degrees. Hybrids are being caught between Beaver town and Holiday Island pulling various Rapalas and Berkley hard baits in 6-10 feet of water. The weather has been great, so get out there and catch some fish.

Beaver Dam Store reported the water below Beaver Dam has fallen enough to get out there and do some wading. Fly-fisherman and bait fisherman are catching their limits, as many gravel bars are finally exposing themselves allowing fisherman to get to "that" special spot to catch them elusive trout. Nightcrawlers and waxworms are working well for catching trout. PowerBait in dough or balls are also working well. Fish the Bertrand and the launching ramp just below the dam using PowerBait. Also, try fishing the Parker Bottoms area. When water is flowing, throw ¼-ounce spoons. Flicker Shad are also doing the job. Don’t forget: The annual one-fly, one-lure tournament is in October; pick up a registration form at the front desk of the Beaver Dam Store.
