The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission has stocked nearly every species of game fish that are native to the state in Greers Ferry Lake. As a result, there is excellent fishing all year-round. Choose your bait and lures based on the desired catch. One can fish from one of the many courtesy docks or launch your boat to more remote fishing spots. Head to the Little Red River or under the dam where cool water flows into the lake.

Greers Ferry Lake has a fascinating past. Before the US Army Corps of Engineers dammed up the waters, an abandoned town of Higden sat in this spot. Around the lake, you can see remains of old roads that disappear into the waters. If you follow a line across the lake, you can make out where the road continued.

For an extended fishing trip, stay at one of the campgrounds surrounding the lake that directly access the river.
