Thanks for the info! I grew up in Jonesboro so I took for granted how easy it was to find catfish over there in the delta. Absolutely love the Ozarks though. I'll have to check out that bridge. Thanks again for the warm welcome!First off Twade75, welcome to the forum.
I moved from NW Ark last year down here to Alabama and I can tell you my advice would be fish Beaver lake, and the rivers and creeks that feed it....but that would be the extent of my advice.
I never fished up there and ALWAYS fished down on the Ark river, but that now wouldn't be safe with all the flood water/bacteria issues there.
I guided for several years on the river but had a man insist on me taking him on one of the BellaVista lakes. Well, we fished it to the tune of NOTHING. I scanned and scanned and threw everything at them. No catfish.
There has been a few people bank fishing off the Hwy 12 bridge on Beaver and catching several, so that might be where I'd start.
Good luck and welcome to the hood.
