Fishing Report

Beulah Lake - 11/4/2019 3:51:23 PM
Species Detail
Bass Bass should be in water between 4 and 8 feet deep near structure. Good bait choices include soft plastics andspinnerbaits. Try fishing around the fishing piers on the Mississippi side of the lake. Or try around the old Fireman's Club ramp lately as well. Normally the best bite occurs on a slow fall of the river.
Crappie Try fishing for crappie along the deepest edges of the fishing piers, especially those with lots of structure sunk around them. Another good place to try if you are trolling is the two deep blue holes on the Arkansas side. Most anglers are using jigs or minnows.
Bream For bream, look for fish to be in water 4-6 feet deep, especially around logs, brush tops, or other structure near the shoreline. Most anglers use crickets, but red worms are also a good bait choice. Bream fishing is usually slow this time of year.
Catfish For catfish, try tightlining or fishing trotlines along the shoreline in water less than 6 feet deep. Blues, channels, and flatheads are all present in Lake Beulah. Best baits for blues and channels should be nightcrawlers or chicken liver. For flathead use live bait like goldfish. The catfish bite is often slow in the winter.
Silver Carp Please be aware that Silver carp are very abundant in Lake Beulah and may jump out of the water and collide with boater, skiers, and anglers.
