Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said the lake is rising and the water temperature is dropping from all the recent rain. Stripers are on the move due to lake turnover and are looking for clean water. Stripers they are feeding intermittently, with only fair success by anglers during turnover. Most are still in the mid-section of the lake. Fishing is fair on live shad fished from the surface to 30 feet deep and on trolled umbrella rigs with white grubs, Rapala no. 14 Husky Jerks and Bomber 15As. Bink Pro Scale 1-oz jigging spoons in white, white with red throat, white many shad and silver many shad are producing fish when worked through a school found on your electronics. The spoons also are producing walleye. Striper are currently found in the mouths of large arms and coves a typical fall pattern. Small striper and white bass are schooling all over the lake so have a 1/2oz Kastmaster ready for surface feeding fish. Check the following hot spots this week: The large gravel bar at the mouth of Indian Creek, The backside of the island at Lost Bridge North, Honey Creek, the cedar thicket at Point 4, the channel that skirts the humps between Big Clifty and Henry Hollow Arms, the Van Hollow Area, Ford and Cedar Creeks, Larue and Copper Mine. Walleye are being caught at Prairie Creek, Copper Mine, Blackburn Creek, Beaver Shores and Horseshoe Bend on medium-diving plugs, jigs and spinner rigs with a minnow or nightcrawler trailer. Be sure to check out Escapalia Hollow, Falls Hollow and Horseshoe bend, as stripers and white bass are feeding on the surface and walleye are being caught below them in big numbers.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the water is high and off-colored. Bream are fair on crickets. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows. Bass are fair on topwater lures early in the morning. No report on catfish.

Tailwaters - Beaver Dam Store said fishing this weekend should be great. The weather is supposed to be kind; there are still a lot of fish and lots of wadable water. On spinning tackle, try a Trout Magnet or PJ's Jig below a bobber with light line. Fly-fishermen have been having the best luck using different variations of pheasant tails. The first boat ramp below the dam is still washed out and unusable for boats. Kayaks and canoes can still launch there. Nickel and gold Colorado spoons are hard to beat for casting. A 3.5-inch Rapala in generating water or the muddy water will make you smile as well. White and yellow Power Bait with a wax worm is good as always.
