Conditions : Beaver Lake: Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said Surface water temperature is in the lower 50s. Stripers are moving into tributaries and backs of long coves, and they are feeding intermittently throughout the day. Fishing is fair 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 and 16a crankbaits 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 when worked through schools found on the depth finder. Small striper and white bass are schooling all over the lake so have a 1/2oz kastmaster ready for surface feeding fish. On the mid- and lower sections of the lake, be sure to check Hybrid Cove near the dam, near the power lines in Indian Creek, around Lost Bridge North, points 5 and 6 and the Ford and Cedar Creek area. In the upper section, be sure to hit the Highway 12 Bridge and the flats and bars around Prairie Creek. Blackburn Creek, Beaver Shores, Hickory Creek and War Eagle have all been hot spots for stripers, white bass and especially walleye. Most walleye are being caught around 5 to 10 feet deep on three-way rigs with a No. 11 Rapala and flat line trolling a Hot-N-Tot, Wiggle Wart, Rapala Tail Dancer or Ripstik in natural blue or black back colors. Slow death rigs, shakee blades and spinner rigs featuring orange and chartreuse beads are working very well on a bottom bouncers or three-way rigs tipped with minnows, nightcrawlers or leeches. Gulp! or Power Bait will also work in place of live bait. Jigs with curly tails in white, chartreuse, orange or black are good options as well.
