Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is 4.73 feet above normal pool and falling. The hybrid and white bass are still coming up in the mornings and afternoons on the south part of the lake and some spots on the north end as well. Spoons, in-line spinners, swimbaits and topwater baits working. Bream are getting ready to spawn with this moon, so concentrate your efforts in shallow water with crawlers and crickets. No report on walleye. Crappie are hanging out around any type of wood cover, but are scattered anywhere from 5 to 25 feet deep. Try jigs and jigs tipped with minnows. Catfish are eating well all over the lake on live and cut bait on just about any rig you want to fish it on. Bass fishing is good early and late, and some good fish are being caught at night. Try drop-shot rigs, Texas-rigged worms and Carolina rigs with Senkos.

Cody Smith at fishgreersferry.com (501-691-5701) said the lake is 6 feet over normal pool and falling slightly with limited rain and daily generation. Surfacing action with schooling white bass and hybrids, which has been really consistent over the past month has slowed over the past week. Most game fish are starting to relate to offshore brush piles. Big bluegills and some small bass are using off shore cover in 18 to 30 feet of water for the first time this summer. Fishing early until mid-morning has been best.

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.
