Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 2.33 feet below normal pool and is falling. The surface water temperature is cooling slowly. Catfish are biting well all over the lake, and can be expected to be good until December on cut bait and live bait. Bream are getting ready to spawn one more time as the moon is coming up, so for some decent action, fish shallow pockets with crickets and crawlers out to 15 feet of water. Bass fishing has improved, but the fish are scattered from 50 feet deep to right on the bank. Try drop shot rigs, Carolina rigs, jighead worms, small spinnerbaits and crankbaits for good action on smallmouth, largemouth and spotted bass right now. No report on walleye. Crappie are biting fairly well around pole timber and brush in 15 to 45 feet of water around baitfish balls. Slow-trolling minnows and jigs is working fairly well. Hybrid and white bass are biting well, and if we get any rain we should see some tremendous schooling all over the lake. Fish can be caught best beneath the surface on spoons, in-line spinners, grubs and swim baits.

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.
