Greers Ferry Fishing Report – June 15, 2016
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 462.30 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 461.44 msl).
(updated 6-15-2016) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 462.29 feet and falling from evaporation, and generation it is 0.25 feet below normal pool of 462.54 feet.
The bream fishing is good all over the lake in and around bedding areas; try crickets and crawlers from 1 foot out to 18 feet of water.
The catfishing is good all over the lake as well on all three species. Rod and reels, jugs and trotlines are all working. Try using any cut or live bait for the best results.
The crappie are pretty much done spawning now and can be caught around pole timber or in or around brush piles suspended or on the bottom. Try using jig or jigs tipped with minnows in 15-25 feet of water.
The bass fishing is good on all four species on ledges, in and around brush piles or in the pole timber as well as humps and creek bends. Texas rigged worms, C-rigs, crankbaits and swimbaits are working as well as topwater baits. There are always fish shallow any time of year. Flip or pitch baits around bushes – topwater baits, or small crankbaits and, on some days, spinnerbaits.
The walleye bite is steady on certain areas of the lake with the right combination of things together in the water. They will be hanging out in 22-28 feet of water. If they are on the bottom, drag crawlers around; if not, use crankbaits for when they are suspended.
The hybrid and white bass are eating well on and off all day long. Some are schooling at different times as well. Use topwater baits for those and when they are down, concentrate in 25-40 feet of water using spoons, in-line spinners, swimbaits and live bait.
