Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 463.38 feet it is 0.84 feet above normal pool of 462.54 feet and has risen 3.54 feet as it has been 2.7 feet under pool before the rain. The black bass fishing has improved with a lot of fish moving back shallow and being easier to catch on topwater baits, spinnerbaits and small crankbaits. The deeper fish are eating Texas-rigged worms, C-rigs and football heads drug slow on the bottom on points and channel swings and around brush piles out to 40 feet deep. The crappie have moved a little shallower in the water column suspended in pole timber and over brush piles from 10-25 feet of water and eating jigs and minnows. The bream are guarding fry around beds again and will eat crickets and crawlers from real shallow out to 25 feet of water. The hybrid and white bass fishing has picked up as well, and it looks to be an early fall bite shaping up and a good schooling year up on top as a lot of threadfin shad are present now again. The schooling fish can be found from one end to the other at various places. And, of course, the structure bite happens year-round in 25-40 feet of water. Spoons, in-line spinners, small swimbaits and topwater baits are the best baits of choice for the schoolers or structure fish. Find the bait and the fish will be close. Catfishing is going well, too, as the dissolved oxygen has improved with the rain, and the bite will continue to be good. Any of your favorite baits will work, either on jugs, trotline or rod and reel. The walleye bite has improved but the fish are roaming around more; use crawlers or crankbaits to find them and just go back and forth as more will be bunched up together on points and small chunk rock flats close to deep water.

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.
