Beaver Lake NW Arkansas 2/20

JT’s Crappie Guide Service (479-640-3980) said bass are slow but hitting clown, silver/black and bone suspending jerk baits along points with timber and crayfish-patterned jigs along steep chunk rock banks. The War Eagle Arm has been good as well as the Prairie Creek area. Crappie fishing has also been tough. Fish are holding tight to cover in 10 to 30 feet of water. Best thing to do is drop your bait to the bottom next to the brush pile and slowly reel it past the cover. Good places to fish have been up either river arm. Best baits have been Shineee Hineee jigs and minnows. White bass continue to be on main-lake points on the deep side and a few are venturing into the mouths of major creek arms on the lake. Good places to fish have been the mouth of War Eagle, Piney Creek, Indian Creek and the cove just north of the dam. Reports have been that stripers are being caught from Horseshoe Bend south to Point 12. Best baits have been live brood minnows trolled slowly 10 to 30 feet deep. Catfish have been feeding heavily on dying shad, so finding a dead or dying one and putting it on a No. 1 circle hook and fishing along steep bluffs should do the trick.

Southtown Sporting Goods (479-443-7148) said water conditions are about normal with temperature in the low 40s. Crappie are biting well on minnows and jigs around brush piles. Bass are fair on jerk baits. A few stripers have been caught on large minnows.
