Spent the last week camping at Horseshoe Bend on Beaver Lake here in Arkansas. We have received a ton of rain in the last two weeks. The lake level came up about 3 feet in the week we were there. They ended up closing the peninsula first come camping area on Tuesday so we had to move up the hill. On a Memorial Day we were asked to leave because the high road had six inches of water and was rising. The Corp of Engineers ended up opening the flood gates on Monday afternoon. 

Tried fishing a couple different times around the rain. Roaring River was high as well with limited visibility. Caught a few fish there. Fished the Beaver Tailwaters on Saturday and didn’t have any luck. First time I’ve been skunked there in a couple years. Didn’t even try night catfishing on Beaver Lake. 

Happy Fishing and Stay Trout Tough!
