Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fishfinder Guide Service (501-940-1318) said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 467.32 feet msl and falling with generation. It is 4.78 feet above normal pool and with the rain that is forecasts we should see another rise, which will help with the fish and shad spawns. The overall bite is good all over lakes and rivers for all species and should continue until mid-July. Crappie are still spawning in lake, and some also in rivers and small creeks; use jigs or minnows and or a beetle spin for best bite. Walleye are done in rivers; some have not got back to lake yet, while lake fish are trying to spawn. Drag crawlers on a variety of methods or a small Rite Bite Senko on jighead in 15-28 feet of water. Bream are coming off a good spawn and preparing for another; use crickets, crawlers, small crankbaits or small inline spinners for best bite behind, in, and in front of bushes out to 15 feet. Black bass are still spawning while some guarding nests and some headed out to deeper water. A lot of techniques are working, and there is good topwater action as well. Catfish are eating all over lakes and rivers, and the flatheads are getting ready to spawn. A variety of ways and baits are working for the cats. Hybrid bass and white bass are gorging on shad all over lakes and rivers; spoons, inline spinners, topwater baits and swimbaits all are working in 10-30 feet of water. Shad are spawning all over lake as well; find the shad and the fish will be close by.

About: - The 30,000-acre Greers Ferry Lake is known for its clear waters and cliffs that line much of its shoreline. One easily recognizable geologic feature on the lake is Sugar Loaf Mountain, where a national recreational trail by the same name climbs the 1,000-foot summit on an uninhabited island (making it accessible only by boat). During warmer months, the fog that hovers over the cold water in the Little Red can create a striking effect. And visitors traveling from the south or east will certainly notice a difference as they enter the region’s hilly terrain.

Fishing - Unknown, but impressive, is the fact that two world-record fish, the hybrid striped bass and the walleye, were caught on Greers Ferry Lake, which is the reservoir from which the Little Red River flows. (The hybrid striped bass, caught in 1997, weighed in at 27 pounds, 5 ounces, and the walleye, caught in ’82, was 22 pounds, 11 ounces.) But walleye and hybrid striped bass aren’t the only catches on the fishing menu at Greers Ferry. Every game fish native to the State of Arkansas has been stocked in the clear waters of the lake by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, and it is especially revered as an excellent largemouth bass fishery.

Camping - On the lake, there are more than 10 campgrounds, dozens of boat ramps and nine marinas, eight of which offer rental boats.
