As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 459.83 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 461.44 msl).
(updated 4-19-2017) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at Greers Ferry are falling with generation, and looks like it will continue to fall with work on the dam project. The fishing and or catching is good overall and will get even better with the more stable weather around the corner.
The crappie are in all three phases of spawn – some shallow, some deep and some even deeper. Try jigs and jigs tipped with minnows or a spring craw grub for your best results.
The walleye bite in the lake is picking up with crawlers and crankbaits, and a drop shot or jighead being the norm for this time of year on chunk rock flats.
The bass catching is good on all three species with a lot of 100 fish days on just about any bait you have in your tackle box at the right location for any given day or weather condition all over the lake.
The bream are moving up strong and can be caught with crankbaits, crawlers and crickets.
The hybrid and white bass are eating at various times all over the lake and rivers. Grubs, swimbaits, spoons, in-line spinners and live bait working as well.
