Greers Ferry Lake Fishing Report – September 7, 2016
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 464.41 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 461.44 msl).
(updated 9-7-2016) Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the hybrid and white bass bite are both good with some schooling fish doing their thing at various places and times all over the lake. Some are roaming and some are staying on structure. The spoon bite is really picking up as well as topwaters, in-line spinners and various other baits are working.
The bream are still doing well on crickets and crawlers in real shallow water out to about 20 feet now.
Catfish are more active than a couple of weeks ago. Use your favorite bait for whichever species you prefer close to deep water on flats.
The crappie are eating Road Runners and jigs, as well as minnows in the pole timber suspended in 10-18 feet of water.
Many walleye are roaming under the hybrids and white bass, eating what they spit up, but others are eating crawlers in 12-28 feet of water.
The bass fishing is picking up in the shallow water with the cooler weather on spinnerbaits, crankbaits and jigs. The deeper fish can be caught with C-rigs and Texas rigs, as well as drop shots.
