As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 1,113.28 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 1,120 msl). (Updated 10-1-2014) Bailey’s Beaver Lake Guide Service (479-366-8664) said the stripers are on the move due to lake turnover. They are feeding throughout the day with peaks in the morning and at night. Most stripers are still in the mid-section of the lake. Live shad fished from 20 to 40 feet deep and trolled umbrella rigs with white grubs and Rapala Husky Jerks, Bomber 15As and Smithwick Rattling Rogues are all working well. Bink pro scale 1oz jigging spoons in white, white with red throat, white many shad and silver many shad are producing fish. Work the spoon through the school and hang on tight jigging spoons are also 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. The water surface temperature is in the mid- to high 70s. Be sure to check out hybrid cove by the dam for stripers. Lost Bridge North has been a hot spot. Check the large gravel bar at the mouth of Indian Creek. Also look on the back side of the island and in the cut between the island. Point 3 and Point 6 are also hot. In Rocky Branch, check the channel between the front of the marina and the road bed that extends to the island. Also check the channel around the little islands in front of the Larue boat ramp and at Goat Island around Larue. Walleye are being caught around Copper Mine, Blackburn Creek, Beaver Shores, Hickory Creek and especially War Eagle on medium-diving plugs, jigs and spinner rigs with a minnow or nightcrawler trailer. (Updated 10-1-2014) Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said bream are fair on crickets. Crappie are biting fairly well on slow-trolled minnows and trolled crankbaits. Bass are biting on tailspinners and other drop baits, but it's been slow. Catfishing is fair on prepared baits.
