fishing tips

      Greers Ferry Lake is one of the few places in the country where it's possible to fish for largemouth bass, white bass hybrids, walleye and trout all in the same day. Home to 2 current world records, Greers Ferry Lake produced world record walleye and hybrid striper bass. An old abandoned town, called Higden, is submerged under this lake. Remnants of this settlement are marked by roads which can be followed to the shore where they disappear under the water, and surface on the opposite side of the lake. Most of these roads are now used as launch ramps for boats. Old West Main Street in Heber Springs is one such access point. A world record brown trout was pulled from the nearby Little Red River. Also, recently famous for rainbow trout, the Little Red River, has become a favorite fishing spot year round, especially near the cool water outlet under the dam. Several campgrounds and boat docks/ramps offer direct access to the river.
