Greers Ferry Lake Fishing Report

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake?s elevation at 459.72 feet msl (normal conservation pool ? 462.04 msl).

(Updated 2-11-2015) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 3.25 feet below normal pool and is falling. Hybrid and white bass fishing are still very good at different times throughout the day around the shad up the rivers and in the main lake. Try using spoons, in-line spinners, swim baits and hair jigs for the best results in 25-70 feet of water. Crappie are biting well on Beetle Spins, jigs and jigs tipped with minnows in the pole timber and over and around brush piles in water as deep as 50 feet. Walleye are showing up in the rivers; the males and just waiting on the females. Try crankbaits, drop shots and live bait. Bass fishing is good right on the bank on some days , the fish are scattered from there out to 70 feet of water. Try Alabama rigs, football head jigs, spoons and drop-shot rigs.

Increasing Fishing Habitat

The AGFC worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to complete a small habitat project on Greers Ferry Lake over teh winter. An expansion at Eden Isle’s parking area left many large stumps and rood wads to be discarded. Instead of burning or grinding them, the Corps loaded the wads on the AGFC Habitat Barge to be placed in the lake for fish attractors and cover. The GPS coordinates to these stumps, as well as all AGFC fish attractors, are available on the AGFC Interactive Map.

(Updated 2-4-2015) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 2.97 feet below normal pool and is falling. The surface water temperature is in the high 40s to low 50s and is rising. Hybrids and white bass are still feeding well and will continue to do so until they start traveling up the rivers. Try spoons, hair jigs, in-line spinners and grubs around schools of baitfish. Crappie are biting on and off throughout the day on Roadrunners, jigs and jigs tipped with minnows in and around the deep pole timber as deep as 50 feet. Walleye are back on the move. Some males are eating up the rivers in wait on the females. Try trolling big crankbaits. Stick baits and live bait for the best action in the warmer water. Bass fishing is good on Alabama rigs, crankbaits and spinnerbaits. Most fish are suspended, but when you can find some that aren’t, a football head jig or Carolina rig will get them.

(Updated 1-28-2015) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said The water level is 2.23 feet below normal pool and is falling. The surface water temperature is in the 40s and is rising. Crappie are biting fairly well on minnows and jigs tipped with minnows. They are suspended 15 to 25 feet deep over 60 to 80 feet of water. Bass fishing is good on Alabama rigs, crankbaits and jigs fished in deeper water. On sunny days, a spinnerbait, small crankbait or jighead worm can work in the shallows. Hybrids and white bass are biting well on shad all over the lake; find the bait and the fish will be close. Spoons, inline spinners, swim baits and hair jigs all work well for hybrids and whites. A few male walleye are being caught in various places in the rivers. With the warm up, good things are ahead; try grubs or a minnow on a jighead on the edges of the channel. Trolled crankbaits are working for walleye as well.

(Updated 1-21-2015) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is 1.73 feet below normal pool and falling. Hybrid and white bass are biting well all over the lake on spoons, hair jigs. in-line spinners and swim baits; look for bait and the fish will be close as they are staging for a run up the river arms. Crappie are biting well around pole timber and brush piles where some shad are hanging out in 15 to 50 feet of water; try jigs and jigs tipped with minnows or the old standby, a Beetle Spin or Road Runner. The walleye should be getting set up to feed since the water has cleared and the river walleye have traveled to their pre-spawn sites; try small minnows on a jighead, a bream on a Carolina rig, a jerkbait or a deep-running crankbait. Bass fishing is good on crankbaits, spinnerbaits, football head jigs and Carolina rigs from right up on the bank out to 50 feet of water; try channel swings close to deep water and main river points.
