AGFC releases its weekly fishing report

Little Red RiverLindsey’s Resort (501-302-3139) said the water is clear and low with one generator running. Trout are biting well on Power Bait, wax worms and marshmallows. Fly-fishing has been good lately as well.  Just Fishing Guides said water releases have been very low with several days of no generation. Most days last week saw water releases at 3,000 cfs for 2-6 hours.  Greers Ferry  As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 454.28 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 461 msl).  Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level is rising, and the surface water temperature is 56-61 degrees. The white and hybrid bass are eating spoons, in-line spinners, hair jigs and swim baits with some busting every now and then; most can be caught from 25-62 feet of water with the bite picking up every day. When the water gets down to 50 degrees, the bite will really pick up, look for bait and birds, on major flats close to the rivers and creeks. The walleye bite is getting better, with the spawn about 2 months away. Walleye are being caught at the mouths of rivers and creeks on spoons, jigs and jigs tipped with minnows fished on the bottom in 45 feet of water. Crappie are biting pretty well all over the lake in pole timber and brush in 12-18 feet of water, on minnows and jigs. Catfish are still biting well with more blues coming in than anything. Try a variety of baits on jugs for the best results. Bass fishing is good with some shallow and some deep. Try spinnerbaits, jigs and small cranks up shallow. For the deeper fish, work an Arkansas Claw, Carolina-rigged soft-plastics or football head jig around points. Cody S. Smith of filed no report.
