Adventurous anglers can try their luck at catching Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, Bream, White Bass, Blue Channel Catfish, Hybrid Bass, and the Striped bass, for which Beaver Lake is famous. Fishing guides are available and highly recommended for those wanting to take on hybrid and striped bass. Find out more about our Beaver Lake fishing guides.
Spearfishing is open all year for rough fish. Each year, millions of fingerling game fish from the Blackburn Creek Nursery Pond are released into the clear, blue waters of Beaver Lake by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.
