Greers Ferry Lake Fishing
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 462.52 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 462.04 msl).
Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at greers ferry lake is falling with generation. Catfishing is good all over the lake with good catches coming in on rod and reels, jugs and trotlines baited with bream, stink bait, soap and dog food. The bream action is good with the full moon, they will be spawning and guarding fry, and eating up shallow on crickets and crawlers and even some small crankbaits. Crappie are in the pole timber and biting during the day and at night under lights, as well as over brush piles 15-25 feet deep on minnows and jigs. Walleye have been scattered on flats with all the cloud cover and storms and are eating crank baits and crawlers in 12-35 feet of water next to deep water , try small chunk rock for the best results. Bass fishing is good. There are not a lot of big fish coming in but a 5 pounder will show up every now and then from deep water. Drag a football head, Carolina rig or Alabama rig on ledges as deep as 50 feet. Shallow fish can be caught on topwater lures, some are even schooling. Spinnerbaits, small crankbaits, jighead worms and Texas rigs are still working as well. Hybrid and white bass fishing can be good on topwater baits and vertical fishing at different times during the day. Find bait fish and stay with them in water 25-50 feet deep and be patient to catch them.
