    fish kill

    I need to update my original post on Page 2 after talking to the Trout Program as it appears I wasn't completely correct. Here is the correct information provided to me. The AGFC Trout Program investigated a fish kill on 7/30/18 that was reported in the lower portion of Beaver Tailwater. The following dead fish were observed between the Houseman Access and Spider Creek: 1 Brown Trout, 1 Rainbow Trout, 22 Gizzard Shad, 8 Threadfin Shad, 28 Sculpin, 2 Common Carp, 1 Bluegill, and 1 Logperch. There were no observed dead fish between Spider Creek to 1/2 mile above the Bertrand Access. They took dissolved oxygen readings and found low readings toward the bottom of deeper pools. Since then, water releases through either Beaver Dam's conduit or generator have increased DO levels and cooled water temperatures in the tailwater.

    AGFC Houseman Access is considered the end of the tailwater.

    fish kill

    The AGFC Trout Program has been spending time over the past two weeks on the Beaver Lake Tailwater monitoring water temps and looking for dead fish. They have only been finding dead Common Carp and Gizzard/Threadfin Shad. However, they haven't gone past were the tailwater ends.

On my spare time, I would take people fishing from the resort to show them how to fish Norfork Lake. My most successful trips involved using the mojo rig. So I just adopted that screen name.

    Fish care

    I've debated on whether I wanted to respond to these suggestions. Some of them I would agree with and others I don't. However, once the angler takes possession of a fish, it is ultimately up to them to provide the care they see fit to provide. So it doesn't really matter what my opinion is lol. With that being said, I don't agree with # 4 "Critical." Keeping the live well temperature close to 65 degrees seems extreme. Currently, the water temperature on Bull Shoals Lake doesn't dip to 65 degrees until greater than 40 ft. The temperature at the thermocline is 75 degrees. I would say trying to keep livewells in the low to mid 70's would be more beneficial and reduce the chance of temperature"shocking" the fish. The general rule that I use is to try to keep the livewell temps within 10 or so degrees of the surface temperature. That is close to what BASS has recommended in the "Keep Bass Alive Handbook" (link). But again it is up to the angler taking care of their fish to decide the best methods to keep their fish alive.

  11. Another one of those head scratchers on how did it get in Bull Shoals Lake. They are somewhat common in many of the rivers in the state including the White River. American Eel only spawns in the ocean but spend some of their life cycle in freshwater. http://www.ktlo.com/2018/06/26/potentially-record-setting-eel-caught-in-bull-shoals-lake/

    Kimbering Docks?

    Here is more information of the "commercial" zone restrictions and what is considered a "commercial zone". This a Little Rock District only regulation. I believe there is no other district that has this regulation. This regulation was the result of an altercation that occurred on Bull Shoals Lake. This regulation is only for commercial zones at Marina concession sites. The dock must be posted with a red sign saying either "Restricted - Marina Customers only within 50 feet from this dock" or "Restricted - Marina Customers only beyond this sign". https://www.swl.usace.army.mil/Portals/50/docs/recreation/SWLR1130-2-57.pdf Here is some historical info about how the restriction came about from the Arkansas side. This was written in 2009. Ward fought hard at the time to get this restriction stopped. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/basscatowners/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=7629&p=7276&hilit=USACE#p7276

    Walleye

    I'm not sure about the upper end but the members of the Twin lakes Walleye club have been slaying them from Peel to the Dam. Bottom bouncing on points has been the ticket for them. In the morning, they have been catching them in 20' of water. As the day goes on, they start to catch them in 30' of water. Numerous reports have mentioned using orange or gold blades.

    Here is a better contact for Twin Lakes Walleye Club: walleyeanglers@centurytel.net They are a great group of anglers. They have 200+ active members in there club. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about Walleye fishing on Bull Shoals and Norfork Lake.
