Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 1.4 feet below normal pool and falling slowly. Hybrid and white bass continue to feed well early in the morning and during different times throughout the day. Find the shad and the fish will be close; use swim baits, spoons and inline spinners in 25-50 feet of water for the best results. Crappie are biting well on jigs and jigs tipped with minnows in brush about 15-30 feet deep. Catfishing has slowed; try live or prepared bait on jugs, trotlines and rod-and-reel on flats close to deep water. Bream areout on brush in 20-25 feet of water, and will bite well on tightlined crickets. Bass fishing is good on topwater lures, Texas-rigged worms, jigs and drop-shot worms as well as Alabama rigs.

Cody Smith of www.fishgreersferry.com said the cooler days been nice to enjoy the water. Six to eight different species of fish are being boated every trip out on my live bait trips. Bass and crappie are biting well on artificial lures, too. Some fish are starting to really suspend with the bait while others are still relating to the bottom and brush piles in 14 to 20 feet of water. Very small shad are finally coming off the shore and out of there spawning locations. Surface-breaking fish can be found in limited windows, but the deeper bite is much more consistent. Walleyes are really starting to transition into mid depths, focusing heavily on the tiny, 1/2-inch shad.

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.
