Jan Johnson at Brewer Lake Bait Shop (501-354-4108) said Conway Corporation reports the lake level at 326.8 msl (normal pool level is 330.0 msl). Arkansas Collegiate Series is having a bass tournament Saturday, Sept. 12. with up to 40 boats. They will launch at the south ramp at daybreak, so prepare for extra traffic and crowded parking. Fishing for all species has been very good, although it did slow some over the holiday weekend. Crappie are very good on live minnows and crankbaits fished 10 to 14 feet deep. Limits of 10- to 14-inch fish are being caught early in the mornings and at night. White bass are chasing the abundant shad at the surface, and spoons are effective. Catfishing is still good at night and early morning using nightcrawlers, large minnows, shad and bream. Bass are biting well on live minnows, crankbaits or soft plastics, although many anglers have commented on the number of small, 10- to 12-inch bass. Bream are along the shore in 2 to 4 feet of water and taking crickets and redworms.
