Stripers are fair, and scattered throughout the lake. War Eagle river is starting to clear up some, so if the weather stays fair, you might want to try up there in the river. White river is still muddy, and the middle part of the lake is holding lots of thredfin shad and the Stripers are near it. Good luck, and if you need a Good Striper Guide, look up Ed Chapko at www.striperguides.net

"http://www.beaversafari.com Beaver Lake Striper Report BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE (479)366-8664 stripers are in the creek arms and the rivers. There is a mud line at the mouth of the war eagle where it meets the white river. The edge of the mud line provides cover to actively feeding striper, they will use it to ambush shad. The white bass run has started and will peak near the 10th of April. Try using Spoons, Spinners, or Grubs/Jigs in White or chartreuse. The morning bite has been the best, most of our fish have been caught by 8a.m. However if it is over cast the bite could last all day. Most striper are keyed on the flats where they can hunt shad. Balloons with bait fished 5-6ft deep without any weight, ""Free linning"" or ""flat linning"" are the live bait technique's to use. Troll slowly! And expect to cover water, you will have to make a ""milk run"" of several spots to get your fish. An umbrella rig will also produce, remember to use chartreuse in the stained water. Try trolling redfins, rapala's and other shallow plugs about 150ft back. Try using planer boards with your plugs or live bait in order to spread your efforts in an attempt to locate the most active stripers. Live bait as always on Beaver Lake when fishing for Trophy Stripers is the go to approach. For daily Beaver Lake levels and flow data go to my website and click on the Daily Beaver Lake Level and Flow info link. There is a 20 inch minimum and a daily possession limit of 3 striper or hybrid or combination of. There is no limitation on white bass. If you have trouble with identification look on page 39 the Arkansas Fishing Guidebook or click this link, the fine is very expensive and you could loose your fishing privileges! The following area's will be holding striper at different times during the day. On the white river from the hwy 12 bridge to mouth of War Eagle where it meets the White river. The area known as Creech has been the best. War Eagle/White river junction-Look in the mouth of the War Eagle up to the side-walk hole. Water temperature is in the mid to high 50's. White bass and hybrids are really stackin' up in this area. Free-line and balloons 8-10ft deep for striper and cast spoons or roster tails for whites and hybrids. Some nice fish are being caught up at the side walk and the 50cent hole's. Spoons, Spinners, grubs in White or chartreuse for white's and 'brids. The lake level needs to be at about 1127 for access past the last shoal on the War Eagle in order to get a boat up to the two dollar/cemetery hole where white bass are stackin' up. No fish at the ""Mill"" yet. You will need to pay The land owner $2 for access through the gate to the deeper hole's where the whites are stackin' up. Remember you are a guest on their property, treat it with respect! DO NOT LITTER! White river-White bass run is heating up. Fish are piled up near Neils bluff and white bass are being caught all the way up to slick rock. Spoons, Spinners, grubs/jigs in White or chartreuse. Water temp's in the mid to high 50's. Blue springs area-412 bridge is holding some fish, during bright sun they are suspending in the shade of the bridge. Good late morning spot. Cedar Bluff area-Flat is holding fish. Water temps in the mid to high 50's. Hickory Creek- Fish activity is fair. Look in Hickory creek cove. Fish are shallow, use a ""free-line"" approach with a decent sized bait about 4-6 inches long. Water temp's in the mid to high 50's. Horseshoe Bend-Fish are up river/creek arms but will return in a few day's. On the mid and lower sections check out these area's. Water temp is in the mid to high 50's. Prairie Creek -Some fish still in the area but most are moving up river. Look for fish from the bridge up river on the flats"" including Beaver shores. Copper mine-Fish are up river but will return in a few day's. Rocky Branch-Fish are up river but will return in a few day's. On the lower section try Indian creek-Holding some Striper Lost Bridge-Holding striper in the area known as ""Fish Trap Hollow"""

"Monday, March 15, 2010 Beaver Lake Striper Report BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE (479)366-8664 Fishing has been good, the stripers are moving into the creek arms as daily temperatures continue to rise near the 60 degree mark. The bait is staying near the surface looking for the warmest water. The white bass run has started and will peak near the 1st of April. Spoons, Spinners, grubs in White or chartreuse. The striper have started their push up river. The activity level will increase as the ambient temperature continues to rise. Find the warmest water. The morning bite has been the best, most of our fish have been caught by 8a.m. However if it is over cast the bite could last all day. Most fish are 8-20 deep.

For daily Beaver Lake levels and flow data go to my website and click on the Daily Beaver Lake Level and Flow info link. The following area's should hold fish, however try to find the warmest water possible (Look in the backs of coves they will warm the fastest). This will also depend on lake flow. You will find a link to the Beaver Lake level and Flow charts for Beaver Lake on the Area/species information page of my website. Here's on old guides trick, if you are fishing up river where the water is dirty try dipping your shad/minnows tail in a chartreuse dye it doesn't matter if it is scented it just makes the bait more visible to the fish. On the white river from the hwy 12 bridge to mouth of War Eagle where it meets the White river."

Beaver Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Beaver Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When larhemouth bass fishing in overcast conditions try jerking a weightless silver fluke on the
top the water around brush. WORKS EVERY TIME.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
75 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Beaver Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- rite now is prime time for the ol dookie fish to start bitin. if you catch one kill it. those damn things taste like pure schit

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.
Beaver Lake Crappie Rating:
3.5
Beaver Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie are holding close to main lake coves. I have also found them on main lake points around 10 to 13 feet. They are holding close to rip rap and isolated stumps in flat regions. Main colors are solid white or chartruse.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Beaver Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Beaver Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Walleye are not an easy catch, but this time of year they become a little more predictable. Find a school
of baitfish in 20-30 FOW and look for a telltale walleye arc or "christmas tree" below and you have found a
school of feeding eyes.

Lead core line and the silver river rockers have been good, wiggle warts, and pointer minnows too.

If you can't mark any that way, work brush piles in 20-30 FOW with a Silver or gold Spoon, a Sonar or a
Darter.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.
Beaver Lake Catfish Rating:

Beaver Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catfish are held up in the cavern. alabamarigged wolly buggers and copper johns tipped with wax worms.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Beaver Lake White Bass Rating:

Beaver Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The white bass are just starting to enter the mouths of the rivers. Some females are being caught most are males. The water temp is around 57 and the the water is stained. Crank baits and road runners being trolled and some casting is working. Green or red and black is the color to use. So get to lake if you can it's just a matter of time before it's in full spawn.
