BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE(479)366-8664 Beaver lake striper are on the prowl for food. Early morning and the night bite has been best. Most striper are still in the mid-section of the lake. Make sure you do not keep striper under 20 inches and not more than 3 striper or hybrid or combination, Walleye must be 18 inches long with a limit of 4! Beaver lake striper fishing will be GOOD with striper taken on live shad fished from 30 to 60ft deep also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs and Downrigger trolling RAPALAS, Bomber 15a-16a or spoons.

Fish location is greatly influenced by lake level and current flow, current in the lake from generation will generally position fish on upstream or down stream edges of structure......check the daily lake level and flow data link on my web site.

Live shad as always on Beaver Lake when fishing for Trophy Stripers is the go to approach.
