As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 1,115.09 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 1,120 msl).

The annual Beaver Lake Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs (HOFNOD) event will be held on Beaver Lake Nov. 25. Coordinators are looking for volunteers with boats to take kids fishing on this day. There are more than 300 kids in the HOFNOD program in this area, so every boat helps. For more information please contact Mike Bailey (479)366-8664 or email him at the link in his fishing report below.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the water is slightly low and clearing up a little bit. The surface water temperature is around 70 degrees. Crappie are biting well, with many large crappie coming on minnows and soft-plastic jigs. Bass are fair on drop-shotted worms and smaller baits fished in 25 to 30 feet of water. White bass are biting fairly well on spoons fished around shad schools. No report on catfish or bream.

Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said the lake is rising and the water temperature is dropping from all the recent rain. Stripers are on the move due to lake turnover and are looking for clean water. Stripers they are feeding intermittently, with only fair success by anglers during turnover. Most are still in the mid-section of the lake. Fishing is fair on live shad fished from the surface to 30 feet deep and on trolled umbrella rigs with white grubs, Rapala no. 14 Husky Jerks and Bomber 15As. Bink Pro Scale 1-oz jigging spoons in white, white with red throat, white many shad and silver many shad are producing fish when worked through a school found on your electronics. The spoons also are producing walleye. Striper are currently found in the mouths of large arms and coves a typical fall pattern. Small striper and white bass are schooling all over the lake so have a 1/2oz Kastmaster ready for surface feeding fish. Check the following hot spots this week: The large gravel bar at the mouth of Indian Creek, The backside of the island at Lost Bridge North, Honey Creek, the cedar thicket at Point 4, the channel that skirts the humps between Big Clifty and Henry Hollow Arms, the Van Hollow Area, Ford and Cedar Creeks, Larue and Copper Mine. Walleye are being caught at Prairie Creek, Copper Mine, Blackburn Creek, Beaver Shores and Horseshoe Bend on medium-diving plugs, jigs and spinner rigs with a minnow or nightcrawler trailer. Be sure to check out Escapalia Hollow, Falls Hollow and Horseshoe bend, as stripers and white bass are feeding on the surface and walleye are being caught below them in big numbers.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said the water is high and off-colored. Bream are fair on crickets. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows. Bass are fair on topwater lures early in the morning. No report on catfish.
