Wife, kids and I are staying next week at my dad's timeshare on the lake. Plan on renting a boat one day, possibly get a guide one day as well. Anyone have experience on it? From what I read it's a very pretty lake..... Thanks!

I think the trout fishing is good below the dam. If I remember correctly a past coworker of mine used to go over there quiet a bit. What I want to know about are the hybrids or stripers. So please let us know how you do. I read yesterday that the night fishing for stripers has been producing for the last few weeks. Perhaps the same holds true over there.

report and contact Greers Ferry As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 461.77 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 462.04 msl). Jeff Mays of Anglers Outpost Guide Service (501-253-1905) said the lake level is at 461.90 and falling with surface temperatures ranging from 83-86 degrees. A visible thermocline appears at 30-35 feet and fish are suspended at 15-25 feet. Surface schooling activity has decreased and fish are feeding heavily on tiny baitfish. Drop-offs, ledges, points and flats are key areas for foraging fish. Check for holding fish in the backs of creek and river channels where the first 20-30 foot depth appears. Submerged woody structure will hold fish in 20-30 foot depths. Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is at 462.28 feet and falling, and the temperature is in the mid-80s. Bass fishing is good if you have wind or generation. Try drops 15-35 feet deep with football head jigs with crawdad trailers or worms, big Texas-rigged worms, Carolina-rigged lizards or a drop shot rig. The topwater bite is good early and late up shallow and there has been a little schooling action. The bream are biting well on crickets and crawlers from up shallow out to 15 feet of water. Crappie are slow but will improve with a little wind. Walleye are slow but steady on crawlers and cranks dragged in 15-27 feet of water on rocky points. Catfishing is good all over the lake on jugs and trotlines baited with bream, shrimp and many other types of bait. Hybrid and white bass fishing is good with wind and current and night fishing has picked up as well. Try spoons, in-line spinners and swim baits in 25-39 feet of water. Want Local info?

World record brown trout came from Little Red below the dam, 40 lb. 4 oz. I believe. Lake was once touted to produce next record Walleye also.
