Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said the lake turnover has begun. You will notice the green stuff building up on your line as you are fishing, and this has got Beaver Lake stripers on the move using main lake structures and mouths of coves, etc. Some stripers are using gravel bars, points, humps, treetops and cuts in the shoreline to corner bait. Fishing weighted-down lines will definitely get you some fish. There has been some topwater activity from striper and white bass. Beaver Lake striper fishing will be good with stripers taken on live shad fished on down lines from 30-60 feet deep; also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartreuse for stained water, and plugs like Rapala No. 14 husky jerks in black back or purple back colors and Smithwick Rogues in similar colors in 5-6-inch model on downriggers. Jerkbaits like flukes, swimbaits and jigs will also produce. With water surface temperatures on the mid- and lower sections, check out these hot areas: Dam and Hybrid Cove, Point 1, Indian Creek, Lost Bridge North, Point 3, Lost Bridge South, Point 4, Big Clifty, Point 5, Point 6, Rambo Creek arm, Rocky Branch and Larue. White bass have been seen surfacing at Prairie Creek, Beaver Shores, and Hickory Creek, War Eagle and the War Eagle/White River junction. Check the daily lake level and flow data on Mike Bailey’s website.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the hot conditions of late summer continued to factor is mostly fair fishing in their area. Look for fish to be bunched up and schooling until the weather breaks. The lake is clear and the surface temperature was 80 degrees. Water level at Southtown is low. Bream are biting fair on worms and crickets. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs as well as trolling. Bass bite is fair, and the fish appear to be deep and kind of scattered. Topwater lures, including Zara Spooks, are bringing in the most bass. White bass also are fair. Catfish reports were poor.
