Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 459.28 and falling, the temperature is in lower 70s and needing to fall. It is warming back up in the afternoons to mid-70s. The crappie fishing is still about the same. They can be caught in and around the pole timber and over and around brush piles in 12-40 feet of water on jigs and minnows. The walleye are scattered and can be caught in 18-40 feet of water on crankbaits and minnows dragged around on drop-shot rigs. The bream are eating in-line spinners, small crankbaits, crickets and crawlers from real shallow out to 30 feet of water. Bass fishing is getting better using spinnerbaits, small crankbaits and jigs in for fish in shallow depths. The deeper fish are eating C-rigs, football heads and Texas rigged worms. Catfishing is good all over the lake on a variety of baits, on trotlines, jugs and rod and reels. The hybrid and white bass are eating off and on all day and night. Use topwater baits, in-line spinners, spoons and swimbaits in 25-40 feet of water. There is some schooling going on at various times throughout the day all over the lake.

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.
