Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said Beaver Lake stripers are using main lake points, humps, ridges, rock piles, brush lines and ditches on their annual downlake migration in search of food. The night bite has been best. Striper fishing is good on live shad fished from 20-to 30-feet deep. Also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartreuse for stained water. Trolling with weighted lines and Rapala no. 14 Husky Jerks and 5- to 6-inch Smithwick Rogues in black back or purple back is working well. Stripers also are being caught at night by casting main lake points with large surface lures like Redfins and Rapalas or large Rat-L-Traps. The hot spots for stripers this week are Lost Bridge North, Points 3, 4, 5 and 6, Lost Bridge South, Rambo Creek, Rocky Branch and Larue. Walleye are also using the same areas and are biting in the 10- to 20-foot range. Try three-way rigging Rapalas in natural colors for clear water or chartreuse/orange and clown colors in areas of stained water. 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.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the water has cleared dramatically, but is still very high. The surface water temperature starts at 85 degrees in the morning and warms to 90 by midday. Bream are biting well on worms and crickets fished in 6 to 12 feet of water near the bank. Crappie are fair on Bandit 300 series crankbaits trolled near channel turns. Bass are fair on black spinnerbaits, jigs and worms fished at night around brush piles and submerged cover in 12 to 20 feet of water. Catfishing is good on trotlines baited with live minnows and bream.

Tailwaters - Beaver Dam Store said there is still a lot of high water, and there have been some good reports of nice brown trout being caught lately. Large spoons and crankbaits are catching the browns the best. There is very little bank access because of the high water, so most fishing is being done from a boat. Worms and white PowerBait are working well for bait fishermen, and streamers are the ticket for the fly-fisherman right now.
