The weather has been hot and dry for the last few weeks here in Northwest Arkansas, and the bass have settled into their normal summertime routines. The predictable weather, as opposed to the constant frontal passages in the spring, makes for consistent fishing and the guys have really been catching the bass well. With the lighter winds and hot days, this area may be starting to stratify already.
Saturday morning we went to Prairie Grove Lake and got an excellent top-water bite. The first hour of fishing and the last hour of the day can really be some awesome fishing right now.
We also went to Beaver Lake on Sunday, up in the War Eagle arm around Natural Walk, and found water conditions excellent. We fished top-water all the way up until the sun came out. Our best baits were pop-r’s, and white and watermelon weightless flukes. After the sun came out they went a little deeper on shaky head worms and swim-baits. Thanks for reading my report!
