Fishing Report – July 3, 2014

Greers Ferry Lake Fishing Report

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 462.52 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 462.04 msl).

Cody Smith of said Greers Ferry is currently at normal pool and holding steady with a slight fall during daily releases at the dam. Water surface temperatures are still hovering in the upper 70s to low 80s. This has some of our shad still shallow, with the majority starting to settle out deeper. However, there is a feeding window shallow early with the shad in our major creeks and tributaries. Once the early morning shad bite is over, it’s time to move to 18-35 feet of water in and around brush is the deal. Walleyes, smallmouth, spotted bass, largemouth bass, catfish and some large bull bream are coming in daily. White bass and hybrids are finally starting to really show themselves up top in select areas, shad is the major factor right now for our temperate bass species.
