Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said said the lake is on the rise with all the rain and the water temperature is in the mid- to high 50s. Striper are moving around the lake looking for clean water and feeding intermittently throughout the day. Most stripers are making their way into the creek arms. Fishing is fair with stripers taken on live shad fished from the surface to 30 feet deep. Also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs and downrigger trolling Rapala No. 14 Husky Jerks, Bomber 15A or 16A cranks or spoons. Bink pro-scale 1-oz. jigging spoons in white, white with red throat, white many shad and silver many shad are still producing fish. Work the spoon through the school and hang on tight. Jigging spoons are also producing walleye. Striper are currently found in the mouths of large arms and are making their way up them in search of food. Small striper and white bass are schooling all over the lake so have a ½-oz. Kastmaster spoon ready for surface feeding fish.Most walleye are being caught about 5 to 10 feet deep on 3-way rigs with No. 11 Rapalas or flatline trolled Hot-n-Tots, Wiggle Warts, Rapala Tail Dancers, Shad Raps, Reef Runners or Ripstiks. Slow death rigs, shakee blade and spinner rigs featuring orange and chartreuse beads are working very well on a bottom bouncers or 3 way rigs tipped with minnows or nightcrawlers. This week’s hot spots are Lost Bridge North (walleye, stripers and white bass are being caught in this arm in large numbers), Big Clifty (striped bass are being caught around the channel that skirts the humps between Big Clifty and Henry Hollow), Point 6 (Check the Van Hollow area near Twin Coves), Rambo Creek Arm, Ford and Cedar Creek, Prairie Creek (Walleye, white bass and stripers are in this arm and the Avoca arm and are occasionally surface feeding), Blackburn Creek (Walleye, white bass and stripers are being caught here) and Beaver Shores (Walleye are being caught in numbers here).

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said crappie are biting well on minnows fished around brush in 10 to 20 feet of water. Bass are fair on spinnerbaits and crankbaits. The jerk bait bite has begun for bass as well. No report on catfish or bream.

The annual Beaver Lake Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs (HOFNOD) event will be held on Beaver Lake Nov. 25. Coordinators are looking for volunteers with boats to take kids fishing on this day. There are more than 300 kids in the HOFNOD program in this area, so every boat helps. For more information please contact Mike Bailey (479)366-8664
