Conditions : Greers Ferry: Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake according to the Corps of Engineers web-site is supposed to be 462.54 feet for this time of year but is at 461.34 feet that is 1.2 feet below normal pool. The bass fishing is going using Texas rigged worms, C-rig lizards and football heads out deep, with some schooling fish being caught on top and some under hybrids and whites at different places around the lake. Some shallow fish can be caught if the conditions are right; try shallow crankbaits and spinnerbaits. The catfishing is good in one area and not so much in the next for some reason using jugs and trotlines with a variety of bait. The bream fishing has been off as well with the hot weather, so quick try from real shallow out to 28 feet of water using crickets and crawlers for the best results. The walleye bite is on again and off again, conditions playing a role. Try dragging crawlers and or crankbaits or dropping live shad straight down in 15-28 feet of water. The hybrid and white bass are acting crazy as well all over the lake – here one day gone the next. With schooling going on and the fish on structure not wanting to bite all the time, if you can get them to fire you can have a good day. Try spoons, in-line spinners, topwater baits and live bait in 25-45 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.
