The water level at the lake remains very high making fishing tough. The river is slowly starting to fall and this should lead to better fishing conditions in the coming weeks. There are no new reports for this week.


Lake Beulah can be located by turning West on Main Street from Highway 1 in the town of Beulah. Take the left ramp to go up the levee then the next right. This will take you to the public boat ramp on the North end of Beulah.

Lake Beulah is at a relatively high elevation compared to other Mississippi River oxbow lakes. When the river is below 18 feet (Ark. City) the water level of the lake is stable. Between 18 - 20 feet lake level is controlled by drainage through culvert in dam. Above 24 feet lake rises/falls close to same rate as changes in river.
