DeGray Lake Sponsored by

Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said surface water temperature is in the mid-80s and the lake is clear throughout. Huge schools of shad are along the south side of the lake between Yancey Creek and Island 34. Many black bass, white bass and small hybrids are feeding on the shad. Bass fishing is good early in the morning on schooling fish. Throw a Zara Spook, Fluke, Pop-R, in-line spinner, 1/2-oz. spoon or 3-inch swim bait as close to the breaking fish as possible. When the fish stop breaking, cast a 1/2-oz. spoon and let it drop to about 20 feet where the school is dropping to. The best areas have been between Point 14 and Ozan Point. Some small to medium-sized hybrids and white bass are being caught mixed in with the black bass. Hybrid fishing in the DeRoche Iron Mountain area has been slow. The thermocline is about 25 to 30 feet deep, and the deep water pattern for hybrids has not developed this year. Bream fishing is good with many small bream up shallow and some bull bream being caught in 15 to 20 feet of water near the bottom off secondary points around rock or wood cover. Crickets and redworms have worked well for the big bream in deep water. No report on catfish or crappie.

About: - The 13,400-acrea DeGray Lake is a prime vacation and weekend getaway in west-central Arkansas. Situated among ridges of the Ouachita Mountains and formed by a dam across the Caddo River, the lake has more than 700 campsites, ranging from full hook-ups to primitive, and some 15 boat-launching ramps on its shores. Anglers enjoy the lake's largemouth bass, hybrid bass and other game fish species. Houseboating, sailing and scuba diving are also popular, as is observing bald eagles that winter on DeGray.
Location: DeGray Lake is located on State Scenic 7 Byway eight miles north of Arkadelphia (Exit 78 off I-30 at Caddo Valley/Arkadelphia) and 29 miles southwest of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
