Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 4.54 feet below normal pool. Hybrid and white bass have slowed, but will pick up soon with the cooler weather in the forecast. If we can get some rain to cool the water faster, the hybrids should go on a tear. Try spoons, in-line spinners and swim baits around the thermocline in water 50 to 70 feet deep. Crappie are slow, but a few have been caught suspended over 50 feet of water on minnows and jigs. No report on catfish. Walleye are slow. Bream are biting well in shallow water all the way out to 30 feet of water on crawlers and crickets. Largemouth bass, spotted bass and smallmouth bass are biting fairly well during the day and at night. Topwater baits are best in low light, then switch to small jigs and Alabama-rigged swimbaits for the daytime bite.

Cody Smith of www.fishgreersferry.com said the lake is 4 feet below pool and is falling with daily generation at the dam. Water surface temperatures are at 86-87 degrees. On the lower end of the lake, a thermocline has set up at 28 feet deep. Many threadfin and gizzard shad are shallow and at moderate depths. There are a few surface-feeding fish, but the schools are small and sporadic. Pulling crankbaits for suspended crappie has been fair to good. Drop shot rigs have been good on spotted bass. Focus on deeper main lake areas (25 to 30 feet deep, where the fish are suspended in 18 to 28 feet of water, or in the main channel in the upper lake where the channel drops to 30-45 feet for crappie.

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.
