Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 4.12 feet above normal pool and falling. The surface water temperature is between 51 and 58 degrees in the afternoons. Crappie are headed towards the bushes and the bite should really be good in about 1 1/2 weeks; try dipping jigs or just minnows around the bushes. Right now, trolling crankbaits in front of the bushes is producing pretty well. Bass fishing is pretty tough with a lot of fish roaming from deep to shallow. Walleye are still being caught in several places during low-light conditions; try jigs and jigs with minnows for the best results. The hybrid and white bass are scattered as well. They are all the way up rivers and on every flat in between and the main lake creeks as well. Try vertical fishing , and up on the shallow flats, with a Road Runner or grub. No report on catfish or bream.

Cody Smith at fishgreersferry.com (501-691-5701) said water levels are falling slightly with daily releases at the dam. The northern half of Greers Ferry is fishing much better overall than the south end. Water temperatures have been reluctant to climb with cooler nights and rain over the last week. Surface temperatures are ranging from 50 to 53 degrees in most areas on the reservoir. Some fish have pushed shallow with the fresh water entering the lake but most are staged from 6-18 feet deep. A few male walleyes are being caught upriver preparing for the spawn with the females looking to move in this week.

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.
