As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 463.03 feet msl (normal conservation pool: 462.54 feet msl).
(updated 3-25-2020) Tommy Cauley of Fishfinder Guide Service (501-940-1318) said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 464.47 feet msl and rising; it is 2.43 feet above normal pool of 462.04 feet msl. “The overall catching is going good all over lake and rivers, and with forecasts for hotter weather it will be off the charts,” Tommy says. “We are open for business as usual, as with 20-foot boat you can practice social distancing for sure. Come get ya some fresh fish.”
Crappie are eating from supper shallow out to 30 feet and all in-between on jigs and minnows and small crankbaits, he says. Walleye are on the move all over lakes and rivers, spawning, post-spawn and pre-spawn. Drag crawlers, minnows, crankbaits and jerkbaits for best results. Catfish are making moves as well, from deep to shallow and all in-between, and can be caught various ways. “Black bass are chewing hard all over, just pick your poison from super shallow out to 40 feet,” he adds. Hybrid striped bass and white bass are in lakes and rivers and all in between from super shallow out to 40 feet. Grubs, spoons, inline spinners and Road Runners are working.
(updated 3-25-2020) Fish ‘N’ Stuff (501-834-5733) in Sherwood says the lake is stained in some places. The level is 2 feet high. Smallmouth and largemouth bass are both good. They can be found 10-15 feet deep. For the smallmouth, a jerkbait and peanut butter and jelly jigs will work. For largemouth, try a creature bait of floating worms used near the bushes in the shallows.
