Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said surface water temperatures are in the low 70s and the lake is clear throughout. Bass fishing is good if you don't mind catching small fish. The bigger fish have been elusive for some time. Look for the vast shad schools (which are most everywhere this year) and you will find the bass. Throw topwaters, such as Zara Spooks, Pop-R's and Flukes. Also try Rat-L-Traps, 3-inch swim baits and Roostertails. Look for schooling fish between Edgewood and Point Cedar. Schooling activity is best in the early morning and late in the evening. During the bright part of the day, try a Texas- or Carolina-rigged worm or lizard thrown across secondary points. Lots of spotted bass are showing along the bluff banks around points 14 and 15. Work a 4-inch finesse worm down to about 20 feet; green pumpkin/red flake is a good starting color. No report on crappie. Hybrid fishing is fair with the fish on the move. The best pattern is to troll a small umbrella rig and look for the schools on the sonar. When fish are located, throw a 1/2-ounce silver spoon or big in-line spinner. Let the lure sink under the fish and work it up through the school. This is the time of year that the hybrids follow the shad into the major creeks, such as Yancey, Big Hill and Brushy. Lots of white bass are mixed in with the hybrids. Also plenty of small white bass in the Point Cedar area, throw a small Roostertail. No report on catfish; there aren't even many trotlines out right now.
