Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 455.04 feet and falling, some 7 feet below normal pool. It has the shad and fish hemmed up, so when you find the bait, the fish will be close, and most species are ready to chew as they have not saw baits in a while. The bass fishing is good on spinnerbaits, crankbaits, drop-shot rigs, C-rigs and football heads at various depths. Look on points, humps and bluff walls for bait and fish. The crappie are eating on various days on minnows and jigs up to 50 feet deep and some as shallow as 15 feet on sunny days. They are suspended most days. No report on catfish or bream. The hybrid and white bass are eating well on spoons, in-line spinners, hair jigs and swimbaits or grubs; look for fish and baitfish in the 25-70-foot range. Walleye are showing up more and more now, with some being caught upriver and some in the lake. Minnows are working on the bottom, and they’re biting also on drop-shot rigs. Look in the 15-50 feet range for the best results.

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.
