Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 462.52 feet msl, which is is 0.52 below normal pool of 463.04 to 462.54 feet for the May-June level. The bass fishing is great shallow and deep for all three species. There are still spawning fish that will last until June, some are post spawn and some are super post spawn out deeper, and a lot of the fish will be back up shallow mid-day trying to eat bream; a topwater back and a Wake bait are working good right now as well as spinnerbaits and small crankbaits. The deeper fish can be caught on a bottom bait at times and crankbait at times. With the bottom baits, you need to use a Texas-rigged worm or a Carolina-rigged cinko or lizard for your best result. Most of the crappie have spawned up the rivers but the lake fish are still doing their thing. In the rivers, fish shallow and out to 15-20 feet for the suspended post-spawn fish. The lake fish can be caught shallow off of main lake pockets, use jigs and jigs tipped with minnows. Catfish are eating well all over the lake on a variety of baits. As for walleye, some river fish are still traveling back to the lake, and the lake fish are on points, humps and riprap banks trying to spawn. The best thing going is dragging crawlers in 5-18 feet of water, shallower on cloudy days and deeper on sunny days. Bream fishing is good all over the lake, shallow out to 15-18 feet of water. Crickets and crawlers are working well, as well as small crankbaits and in-line spinners. The hybrid bass and the white bass are really chewing now but acting real crazy, as they are chasing bait all over the place. If you find the bait and the fish and they run off, just sit still, they will be back soon. Small spoons are working well as are in-line spinners fished vertical, and swimbaits and topwater baits fished horizontal, as well as different types of live bait. Concentrate in 25-35 feet of water.

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.
