Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said he’s never seen DeGray this dead in terms of activity for this time of year and he had no new reports. He says that bass fishing should be good now because of the low water, which makes the fish bunch up more, but it’s been just the opposite, with the fish being really scarce. Crappie were good on the deeper attractors in October and early November. George says he thinks the water is now so low that it is virtually impossible to find a decent deep attractor. Hybrids have all but disappeared; George says he hasn’t made a decent catch since September. This too is unusually because November is typically a prime time for fish in the creeks, such as Big Hill and Yancey. Also, Lenox Marcus used to be a hot spot. Most of George’s angling buddies have stopped fishing for hybrids. Bream fishing is never considered good in the late fall and winter here. George says he seldom gets any catfish reports because those fishermen are "night owls" and he is sound asleep at night. Even the ducks are scarce now on DeGray. George recalls that when the lake had hydrilla, the canvasbacks would be thick in the coves around DeRoche Ridge. He said he hasn’t seen any since the hydrilla disappeared.

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.
