Beaver Lake Striper Fishing Guide Report



BEAVER LAKE ARKANSAS STRIPER GUIDE FISHING REPORT

07/11/2017

Striper activity forecast for the week is:GOOD

POOR-FAIR-GOOD

BAILEY'S BEAVER LAKE GUIDE SERVICE(479)366-8664 Beaver Lake Striper are back on the main lake. They have gone deep for the most part and they are on the feed with most striper using 40-100+fow. Some Beaver Lake Striper are using gravel bars, points, humps, tree tops, bluffs and cuts in the bank adjacent to the main channel to corner bait. Fishing down lines with live bait will definetly get you some fish. Night fishing has also been productive in these areas.

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 on down lines from 30' down to about 60 feet, also try trolling small umbrella rigs with white grubs or chartrues for staind water, plugs like Rapala #14 husky jerk's in black back or purple back colors and Smithwick Rogues in similar colors in 5-6inch model on down riggers or snap weights to get some depth and stagger your presentation. Jerk baits like flukes, swim baits and jigs will also produce.

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