Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is holding pretty steady. The hybrids and white bass are biting well; you have to stay around the bait using your electronics and they will come up and school at different periods during the day. The upcoming cooldown should key in the topwater bite, so be prepared with topwater baits, in-line spinners , Rinky Dinks, Alabama rigs and spoons. Crappie are biting well around any kind of wood 15-25 feet deep on minnows and jigs. A few reports are coming in with trolled crankbaits working as well. A few walleye are being caught, but most are scattered at different depths; try dragging crawlers until water temps get into the low 60s for the bottom-hugging fish. For the suspended fish, try dropping a minnow straight down to them and/or a jigging spoon or drop-shot rig. Bream, most have been caught out in about 27 feet of water, getting ready for the winter, try crickets and crawlers on the bottom and a drop-shot rigged with the same baits. All three species of bass are eating well all around the lake as they put on a great feed before winter. The bite will be very good on spinnerbaits, small crankbaits, Carolina rigs and Alabama rigs for all three species.

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.
