Beaver Tailwater

Beaver Tailwater has something for about any angler. For the first several miles, trout abound in its cold water, flowing from the bottom of Beaver Lake. The Arkansas Fish & Game Commission has devoted sections of this water to flies and lures only, placing a slot limit on trout so that the tailwater has a chance to grow larger trout. Both browns and rainbows, stocked in the lake by the state, can be caught. There are several accesses for both boat and walk-in wading below the dam. Besides trout, warm-water species are found in both the cooler waters of the tailwater and further down where the water warms. The state record striper came from these waters.
