That's where I've done most of my trout fishing. What most people dont know is that, while it doesnt produce big trout like the rest of the White River, the catch rate is higher on the Beaver Tailwater than any other section.
I like it right at the boat ramp below the dam. That's where the hatchery truck backs down, so I figure that's as good a spot as any to start. If they're generating, I usually pack up and go to Roaring River in Missouri, but in the winter it's catch/release.

There is a handicap accessible fishing spot at one of the accesses below Beaver Dam that is a good place to start wading. Hobbshunter, have you been over to Lake Britney in Bella Vista? AGFC started stocking it with Rainbows as a food source for the bass. I caught a nice fish there today.

No, I havent been over there yet. Been meaning to. I live 5 min from there.
Any tips on catching them in a lake? Was there a lot of people over there fishing for them?

It is kind of hit and miss to real good from what I have heard. I caught about a 13" fish on a Gold and Silver Colorado spoon. Had a few fish steal my salmon eggs I was using for bait. There were several people scattered along the length of the dam on Monday. Not anywhere near "Combat Fishing". What I hear works well is bait that floats just off the bottom. Put a split shot on your line above the swivel and attach a snelled hook with floating bait to keep it off the bottom. Salmon Eggs don't float but they seem to work well for me.
