Fishing Report

Beulah Lake - 3/19/2018 9:59:53 AM

***Due to high water and to minimize the flooding of people's houses and properties, the entirety of Lake Beulah has been declared a no-wake zone. Any boating activities on the lake must not cause any wake at all.  Please be a good neighbor and abide by this order at Lake Beulah.***

The public boat ramp is underwater and there's no public access to Beulah besides coming in from the river.  Fishing is usually poor during floods like this, and it can be dangerous to be out there too.  Your best bet is to avoid fishing at Beulah until the water goes back down and fish at another nearby lake outside the levee instead.



Lake Beulah can be located by turning West on Main Street from Highway 1 in the town of Beulah. Take the left ramp to go up the levee then the next right. This will take you to the public boat ramp on the North end of Beulah.

Lake Beulah is at a relatively high elevation compared to other Mississippi River oxbow lakes. When the river is below 18 feet (Ark. City) the water level of the lake is stable. Between 18 - 20 feet lake level is controlled by drainage through culvert in dam. Above 24 feet lake rises/falls close to same rate as changes in river.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters.   Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
