The lake is slowly starting to warm now that Table Rock has reduced the amount of generation into Bull Shoals. Fishing has started to improve, by may take some much needed sunshine to really get these fish up on the banks.
Black Bass – Fair on small plastics and shaky head rigs in the coves. Surface debris making it hard to throw a crank bait or spinner bait around the K Dock area. Better bass reports have been south of the marina around the Bee Creek area. Had reports of some really good Small Mouth bass hitting on the points.
Crappie – Fair to Good on live minnows as well as swimming minnows. Really need some warmer water for the crappie to start spawning on the banks in the coves. For now, focus on trees and brush piles in the coves.
Walleye – Fair on medium crank baits and shiners. Better results from the Arkansas line back to Mincy Creek cove. Also fair on spoons, jigs and jerk baits.
White Bass – Good in the Beaver Creek arm. Small spinner baits, white rooster tails and 3″ swimming minnows.
