Conditions : Beaver Lake: Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) the Everett Chevrolet Big Bass tournament is this weekend. If you see a duck decoy floating in the water and you’re not in the tournament, please leave it be. Tournament contestants who find these decoys can turn them in for a prize. Visit https://www.facebook.com/EverettChevroletBigBass to learn more about this tourney. The water is still high and the water clarity is good. Bream are fair on crickets. Crappie are biting well on crankbaits trolled near brush piles in 8 to 10 feet of water. Bass are excellent on topwater lures early and late in the day and on spoons and drop-shotted finesse worms in 25 to 30 feet of water during the day. No report on catfish.

Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said the water is in the mid- to high 70s. Stripers are leaving their deep water summer haunts as the water is beginning to cool. Watch for surface activity from stripers, white bass and hybrids. Stripers are using main lake points, humps, ridges, rock piles, brush lines and ditches on their annual uplake migration. They are searching for food and are scattered throughout the lake. They will be making their way into the creek arms soon as the water temp is beginning to cool. Fishing is good with live shad fished from the surface down to 30 feet deep. Also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartreuse grubs for stained water. Plugs trolled on flat lines or slightly weighted lines will work. Try using large, slender plugs like Rapala no. 14 Husky Jerks in black back or purple back colors and Smithwick Rogues in similar colors in 5-6inch model. Striper are also being caught at night by casting main lake points with large surface lures like Redfins and Rapalas or large Rat-L-Traps. Hot spots include main lake structure sand secondary points around points 1, 3, 5 and 6. The bluff in front of the marina, the island an the smaller islands in front of Larue Cove are all producing stripers. Also check Cedar Creek, Ford Creek and Goat Island at Larue.

Striper activity is picking up around Prairie Creek and Coose Hollow, be on the lookout for topwater action. Most walleye have moved to the second drop and are being caught about 20-30ft deep they can be caught using a variety of methods. Try three-way rigging Rapalas in natural colors for clear water or chartreuse/orange and clown colors in areas of stained water. Also try Shad Raps in natural colors and Rat-L Traps trolled at 1-2 mph. Bink pro scale 1-oz jigging spoons in white or white/chart combo are producing walleye.
