Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry is 0.73 feet below normal pool and falling. Hybrid and white bass are excellent all over the lake throughout the day; they can be caught in and around bait fish, and some are coming up on top as well. Try topwater baits, in-line spinners, swim baits and Rinky Dinks around baitfish in 25-50 feet of water. Bream are still on beds and can be caught with crickets and crawlers up pretty shallow all over the lake on pea gravel banks. Crappie are hanging out in pole timber and in and around brush piles 15-30 feet deep; they can be caught on jigs and jigs tipped with minnows. Catfishing is going great on rod-and-reel and baited lines and jugs all over the lake with dog food, soap and live bait; try flats next to deep water. Walleye are biting pretty well on cloudy days , but are scattered on flats; try using small jigs, trolled crawlers and crankbaits in 12-30 feet of water. Black bass are scattered all over the water column from real shallow out to 50 feet of water. Try Alabama rigs, Texas rigs, Carolina rigs and football head jigs deep. For the shallow fish, use topwater baits, small crankbaits, and spinnerbaits.

Cody Smith of www.fishgreersferry.com said Greers Ferry is currently at normal pool and holding steady with a slight fall during daily releases at the dam. Water surface temperatures are still hovering in the upper 70s to lower 80s. This has some of our shad still shallow, with the majority starting to settle out deeper. However, there is a feeding window shallow early with the shad in our major creeks and tributaries. Once the early morning shad bite is over, it's time to move to 18-35 feet of water in and around brush. Walleyes, smallmouth, spotted bass, Largemouth, catfish and some of our larger bull bream are coming in daily. White bass and hybrids are finally starting to really show themselves up top in select areas; find the shad and you'll find the fish.

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.
