Fishing Report – March 27, 2014

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 460.20 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 462.50 msl).

Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the anglers expo is this Friday and Saturday at Heber Springs, visit for more information. The water level at Greers Ferry is 0.01 feet below normal pool and is falling. The surface water temperature is 48-56 degrees depending on time of day, location and weather. Hybrid and white bass are on the move. Some are up the river; some males are upriver, but most females are only about halfway up. Cold fronts are keeping them back, but the warmer weather should kick it in high gear. Try grubs, small flies, in-line spinners and jerkbaits. Crappie are biting fairly well. They are beginning to move shallow as well. Many can be found 3 to 5 feet deep over brush and timber in 10 feet of water. A few crappie are still suspended out in 25 to 30 feet of water in the pole timber. Walleye are almost finished spawning upriver. Try trolled crank baits, Rattling Rogues and jigs tipped with minnows on humps, points and rip rap banks between upriver spawning areas and the main lake. Bass fishing is catching fire with a lot of different baits working. Most fish are shallow or are moving that way. Try spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, Alabama rigs, Carolina rigs and jigs.
