Conditions : Lake Greeson: Gary Lammers of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reported surface temperature is in the lower to mid-90s. Schooling activity has picked up early from sun-up until mid-morning, but the bass are finicky. Most of the shad are about 1.5 inches long. Small Flukes and Finesse Fish are working well if you can get it on the schoolers quick enough, small CC spoons and 2-inch twister tail grubs work well for suspended fish. The size 90 Whopper Plopper is still taking some nice size bass in open water over the main river channel. During mid-day try fishing finesse worms or drop-shot rigs in watermelon red and pumpkinseed colors, off of main lake points in 16-20 feet of water. Crappie are fair on fish shelters and are holding 15-20 feet deep; live minnows remain the best bet for crappie right now. Catfish are fair on noodles and trotlines, small sunfish and liver are getting the bigger bites. Gary says he hopes all you die-hard anglers were able to enjoy the eclipse from a boat on the lake like he did. It was a strange and unforgettable experience and the fish bite was really good throughout the day, especially during the event. Be safe and don’t forget to hook up that kill switch.

About: - Narrows Dam impounds the waters of the Little Missouri River to form 7,000-acre Lake Greeson, a prime recreational resource in southwest Arkansas. The 12-mile-long lake features clear waters and steep, rocky ridges that form numerous islands and long peninsulas extending into the lake.  Anglers flock to Lake Greeson for the abundant channel catfish and rainbow trout fishing.

Fishing: Lake Greeson offers a rich variety of game fish includes such species as largemouth, smallmouth, spotted and white bass, flathead and channel catfish, black and white crappie, and bluegill. In the Little Missouri River tailwaters below the dam, rainbow trout fishing is a popular sport, as these are stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Camping and picnicking are available at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' parks and at Daisy State Park located around the lake shore.
