DeGray Lake Sponsored by
Date 22-Jan-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : DeGray Lake: Local angler George Graves said the surface water temperature is in the low 40s. The water is clear up to Lennox Marcus and muddy up to Point Cedar; it starts to clear up and is clear again at about Amity. Bass fishing remains slow with only a few catches reported. Fish slowly and near the bottom next to wood or rock cover. The best pattern is either a Texas- or Carolina-rigged green pumpkin/red flake or red shad worm or lizard worked across main lake and major secondary points. Fish the sunny side of the lake fairly shallow during the warmest part of the day to see if some fish have moved up with the weather. Also try a red lipless crank bait worked deep across the same points. Look for fish between Edgewood and Point 14. Also try the major creeks such as Big Hill and Brushy. Hybrid fishing is still very slow due to the muddy water in the Goat Island and Shouse Ford areas. Lots of fish are showing on the sonar graph, but they are almost impossible to catch in cold muddy water and it seems that all the fish are in the muddy water. The water should start to clear shortly because clear water is coming down the river. The best bet is to slow troll a small umbrella rig loaded with 3- or 4-inch swim baits. White and chartreuse are the best colors. Run a long line, (about 100 feet) and run the rig down at about 15 feet.

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.
