Guided Bass & Trout Fishing

Guided Bass & Trout Fishing

Find “The Bite” You’re Looking for

Whether you normally just watch fish in an aquarium or you’re a seasoned pro with many a tale, Gene or Ryan Chapman with Beaver Guide Service can help you find ‘The Bite’ you’re looking for. With over 30 years experience, Gene and Ryan are accomplished at providing their guests with unique, pleasant and professional fishing adventures both on Beaver Lake or on the White River. Beaver Lake Dam was constructed by the Army Corp of Engineers from 1960-1966. Behind the dam, the White River flows into Beaver Lake from over 30 miles to the west so by the time the water has made it all the way to the Dam, the river sediment has had time to settle out often making visibility at this end of Beaver Lake a full 20 feet or more. Below the dam, the cool, clear, lake water is continuously released into the next section of the White River making it an ideal habitat for trout and white bass.

Each body of water provides its’ own unique fishing experience, and the Chapman’s are familiar with how to make the best out of either environment. So how does it work? Well, since the goal here is to catch fish, you will need to go fishing when and where the fish are biting and that usually means in the very early morning around dawn. Other times of the year, especially in July and August, the fish are best caught at night after the recreational boat traffic has cleared out. Depending on what you are after and what fish are biting, Gene or Ryan may meet you at our boat dock, but most likely you will meet one of them near the Beaver Dam.
