Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 6.07 feet below normal and falling. The surface water temperature ranges from 67 to the mid-70s. Hybrid and white bass fishing is going great, with some schooling going on. Try topwater baits of various kinds and swim baits,grubs, in-line spinners and spoons. Watch your electronics and stay with the bait fish. A few walleye are being caught under hybrids that are busting, but that's all the walleye being reported. Bream are biting crickets and crawlers shallow; the good ones are out deeper about 27 feet deep eating the same baits pretty good. No report on catfish. Crappie are biting well on jigs and minnows in about 18 feet of water. Bass fishing is good shallow and at mid-depths. Some suspended fish are being caught on topwater baits, Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits and small crankbaits. Others are biting well on jighead worms and Carolina rigs with a stick worm or lizard.

Cody Smith of www.fishgreersferry.com said water surface temps have finally reached the upper 60s and low 70s. This has put the fish in a feeding mode. Spawning shad have some fish shallow, while suspended bluegills over brush are keeping the deeper fish fed. Until we get some major runoff and inflow into the reservoir look for game fish to be really spread out over the top 25 feet of the reservoir. Shad imitations are taking all types of game fish from sunup until mid-morning. The afternoon bite seems slower than the morning bite, but starts to pick up around 4 p.m. and increases until dark.

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.
