BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE(479)366-8664 Beaver lake striper are still in the tributaries and the longer arms like Blackburn creek. They are using main lake points in the surch for food and they have spawn on their mind. 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 25ft 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.

Know your species and make sure you identify any fish you keep. There is no limit on white bass, there is a 3 fish limit on striper/hybrid and a 20 inch minimum length on striper. You may not keep more than 3 striper and hybrid in combination.

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.

  WALLEYE  

Most walleye are being caught about 5-10ft deep and can be caught using a variety of methods. Three way rigging Rapalas in chartreuse/orange and clown colors in areas of stained water. Slow death rigs, shakee blade and spinner riggs featuring orange and chartrues beads are working very well on a bottom bouncers. Jigs tipped with minnows, nightcrawlers or leeches, gulp or power bait will also work in place of live bait. Jigs with curly tails in white, chartruese, orange or black are good options as well. Bink pro scale 1oz jigging spoons in white or white/chart combo are still producing walleye in the deeper holes.
