FISHING FORECAST
The highlight of the Gray's Lake fishery are the largemouth bass. Surveys in 2018 found bass in three main size groups. The most abundant was from 10- to 14.5-inches. The other two groups with good numbers were 15.5- to 17-inches and 18- to 20-inches. Bluegill were sampled in good numbers, but size is topping out around 6.5-inches with most being 5-inches. White crappies were surveyed in fair numbers in the 8- to 9.5- inch range. Channel catfish are the most abundant game fish with the majority being 11.5- to 15-inches. Channel catfish up to 28 inches were surveyed.(2019)
