Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said surface water temperature is in the low 70s and the lake is clear throughout. Most fishing has been slow the past few days due to the inclement weather which dispersed the shad schools. A few bass have come from secondary points on Texas- or Carolina-rigged worms or lizards, along with jigs with a critter trailer. Mid-lake between Edgewood and Shouse Ford have been the best areas. Quite a few spotted bass have come from bluff banks around points 14 and 15. Throw a 4-inch finesse worm and work it down to about 20 feet. A few crappies have been caught in the Shouse Ford and Point Cedar areas. Look for brush in 18 to 20 feet and drop a 2-inch curly tail grub in Tennessee shad on a 1/16-ounce jig head. Also try live minnows fished just above the brush. Hybrid fishing was good before the stormy weather in the Point Cedar area. When the weather settles, look for "breaking" fish and throw topwaters such as Zara Spooks or Pop-R's. When the fish go down, try a 1/2-ounce silver spoon, Rat-L-Trap or big in-line spinner. Morning and late evening are the best times. Bream are fair with most of the bigger fish taken deeper from secondary points in big coves. Look for fish at 15 to 20 feet down and drop a redworm or cricket just above the bottom. Most anywhere in the lake will hold bream, you just have to find the schools. A few catfish were reported coming on trotlines placed in Brushy Creek and the Point 10 area.
