BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE(479)366-8664 Beaver Lake striper are leaving their deep water summer haunts as the water is beginning to cool. Watch for surface activity from stripes, whites and hybrids. Beaver Lake Striper are using main lake points, humps, ridges, rock piles, brush lines and ditches on their annual up lake migration and in the search for food and scattered throughout the lake. They will be making their way into the creek arms soon as the water temp is beginning to cool. 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 the surface down to 30ft deep also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartrues for stained water, plugs flat lines or slightly weighted lines like Rapala #14 husky jerk's in black back or purple back colors and Smithwick Rogues in similar colors in 5-6inch model. Striper are also being caught at night by casting main lake points with large surface lures like Redfins and Rapalas or large rattle traps ar producing fish.

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.
