As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 468.50 feet msl (normal conservation pool: 462.54 feet msl).
(updated 6-17-2020) Tommy Cauley of Fishfinder Guide Service (501-940-1318) said the water level at Greers Ferry Lake is at 468.53 feet msl and falling with generation and evaporation now. The lake is 5.99 feet above normal pool of 462.54 feet msl. Crappie are still eating well in outside bushes, over brush piles and in pole timber on jigs and minnows 15-30 feet. Walleye are set up outside of bushes and deeper on pea gravel and chunk rock flats; drag crawlers 18-30 feet. Catfishing is good all over lakes and rivers, and creeks as well, on a variety of baits and techniques. Black bass are eating on top down to 30 feet and all in between on a variety of baits and techniques. Hybrid bass and white bass really eat in June and July with water like it is; use inline spinners, spoons, grubs, Alabama rigs, swimbaits and topwater lures. They’re in 25-40 feet depth.
(updated 6-17-2020) Fish ’N Stuff (501-834-5733) in Sherwood says largemouth and smallmouth bass are hitting topwaters early in the morning and late in the evening, while the best fishing in the middle of the day is focusing on 20-25 feet depth with a Carolina rig. The water is a little high; anglers are urged to be cautious with all the boat traffic at Greers Ferry.
