Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said the surface water temperature is in the low 50s and the lake is clear up to Cox Creek. The water is stained further up the river. Bass fishing is only fair and not many are fishing. Last week's BASS event had a two-day total of a little over 20 pounds to win, which is not too good for DeGray. It seems the fish are mostly small, really scattered and not feeding much. About the only activity has been off main lake points and pretty deep at 15 to 20 feet down. The best pattern has been deep-running crankbaits, jigs with critter trailers and Texas-rigged worms. Work all lures slowly down the steep side of points and ledges. Best areas have been between Point 15 and Cox Creek. Hybrid fishing remains very good with lots of double-digit catches reported. The fish are now in the upper end of the lake between Point 15 and Point Cedar with the best spots at Beaton/Point Cedar creeks and the big flat west of Goat Island. The fish are in schools and are constantly moving chasing the abundant shad schools. The best pattern is to troll until fish are located then you can cast to them. Best trolling lures are swim baits, medium-running crankbaits and 5-arm umbrella rigs loaded with 4-inch curly tail grubs or swim baits. For casting, try spoons, in-line spinners and the Alabama rig. The bst color is just plain white on all lures. Remember the fish that are feeding will be suspended about 15 feet down so be sure to troll the lure above the fish at 10 to 12 feet. No report on crappie, catfish or bream.
