February 22 Fishing Report

The Greers Ferry Lake level is below pool for this time of year allowing for sporadic water releases for the Little Red River. Currently we are receiving power generation on weekdays and very little generation on weekends. With the warmer temperatures, we are seeing good bug activity with hatches of BWO and March Browns on the middle and lower river. For fly fishing, we recommend gold ribbed hare’s ear, pheasant tails, soft hackles, sowbugs and streamers. For Trout Magnet fishing, black and cotton candy colored bodies on gold jig heads are recommended. Always check before heading to the Little Red River by calling the Corps of Engineers Little Rock District water data system (501.362.5150) for Greers Ferry Dam water release information or check the Corps of Engineers website (swl-wc.usace.army.mil) for real time water release and the Southwest Power Administration website (swpa.gov) to see forecasted generation schedule.
