BEAVER LAKE ARKANSAS STRIPER GUIDE FISHING REPORT

06/02/2017

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. We are still getting topwater action! They are on the feed even with the stained water and most striper using 20-100+fow. The mud line is clearing nicely. Some Beaver Lake Striper are using gravel bars, points, humps, tree tops and cuts in the bank to corner bait. Fishing free lines and lightly weighted down lines will definetly get you some fish. Shad are spawning in the buck brush, on tree lines near deep water and on floating debris. Night fishing under the full moon has also been productive in these areas. Some Striper are keyed on the spawning shad and patroling areas that the shad are spawning in. There has been some topwater activity from striper and whitebass.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 free and down lines from the surface down to about 50 feet deep 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 plane boards with snap weights to get some depth and stagger your presentation. Jerk baits like flukes, swim baits and jigs will also produce. Topwaters like redfins in 7", spooks, pencil poppers etc!!! Have 'em tied on and ready!!!

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.
