Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said water surface temperature is in the high 60s. Stripers are patrolling submerged brush, trees and rocks feeding on spawning shad. Walleye are also using the same areas and are biting in the 4- to 10-foot range. Fishing is good on live shad fished from the surface down to 25 feet deep. Also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartreuse for stained water. Trolled Rapala No. 14 Husky Jerks and Smithwick Rogues are working on weighted lines. Stripers are also being caught at night by casting main lake points with large surface lures like Redfins and Rapalas or large Rat-L-Traps. Walleye are being caught along the riprap of the dam and along Lost Bridge North. Stripers and white bass also are being caught in this area. Also check the channel that skirts the humps between the Big Clifty and Henry Hollow arms! At Rocky Branch, the bluff in front of the marina, the island and the smaller islands in front of the Larue Cove are all producing stripers. Copper Mine and Ventris also are some good striper hot spots.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the water is muddy and high. Crappie are fair on trolled crankbaits. White bass are fair. Largemouth bass are fair on topwater lures and shaky head worms. The bass are post-spawn now, so they'll be moving deeper. Catfishing is good on worms and live bait. They are still prespawn, so expect the action to pick up soon.

Tailwaters - Austin Kennedy of Busch Mountain Fishing Guide Service (479-640-8733) said water temperatures have been a little cooler, ranging from the mid 40's from Houseman to Spider Creek this week due to all the rain. Fishing has also been slow with all species. White bass and walleye are still being marked, just not catching them in the numbers as previously reported. The trout are biting on light terminal tackle with various Power Baits. Also try pulling Rapala Countdowns or Floating Minnows. There's still no sightings of bait balls, but I am seeing bait. I suspect when the weather starts to calm and river temperatures increase, we will see quite an improvement.
