DeGray Lake Sponsored by

Water Temperature  


Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said the surface water temperature is in the high 60s and the lake is clear throughout. Bass fishing is good with some nice catches coming from coves and the backs of creeks. Shad are schooling in these areas and when you find the schooled shad the fish will be in them. Throw crankbaits (both lipped and lipless). A ½-ounce Rat-L-Trap works just fine. Color isn't too important just so it is flashy enough so the fish can see it. If shad and schooling fish can't be found, try a Texas-rigged worm fished across points next to the coves. The best areas have been between Point 14 up to, and above Cox Creek. Also try the back end of Yancey and Big Hill creeks. Hybrid fishing remains slow, but white bass are very good. Like black bass, the whites are in the backs of creeks and coves. Look for shad and breaking fish. Throw inline spinners, small spoons and lipless crankbaits. Shouse Ford and up to Amity are the best areas for hybrids.

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.
