Beaver Lake 2/6

Postby Beaver Lake Crappie » Wed Feb 06, 2008 3:39 pm

Beaver Lake : As of Tuesday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 1,113.54 feet MSL.
JT’s Crappie Guide Service (479-640-3980) said bass fishing has been best in the Big and Little Clifty area. Crawdad-colored Wiggle Warts and watermelon jigs fished along chunk rock banks have produced some bass. Points with timber have been holding bass as well. Try using suspending jerkbaits in clown or bone colors. Crappie fishing continues to be best in the river arms. The Neals Bluff area and Friendship Creek have been good spots. Look in shallow bays on warm sunny days around laydowns and brush piles. On cloudy days try around standing timber near the channel in 10-25 feet deep. The best baits have been minnows and Shineee Hineee jigs. White bass are still in their winter haunts along deep main-lake points. Indian Creek, Eden's Bluff and Point 12 are all good spots to look. On warm, sunny days, they may venture out to flats or in shallow bays. Jigging or casting spoons will work best. Stripers have been in Prairie Creek and south towards Monte-NE. Umbrella rigs with 3/8-oz. jigheads dressed with white grubs have produced well. Catfish are biting well along bluff lines on shad or liver.

Thanks BLC.

I have a question...what's with the Corps of Engineers report regarding the elevation of the lake? Does that change a lot over the course of a season? How does it affect the fishing there?

I do the fishing report for the Arkansas Game and Fish, that is where why it is in that format. The elevation is above sea level and it does fluctuate if we get rain or don't get rain. I've seen it as low as 1105 feet and as high as 1130 feet above sea level! I put brush piles in different dephs so it does not effect the fishing to awful bad for me!
