Im once again being forced to go to my wife's family reunion in Wray (I love Wray, just not fond of reunions). This year she has told me that Im welcome to sneak out for some fishing while we are there (WOOT!)
Ive never been to Stalker lake, or heard much about it so I thought I would see what you guys think. Is the fishing good? Any tips you might want to share? Would love to hear anything.

precizion, Stalker is a nice little lake just west of Wray that holds some good Bass, Bluegill, Red Ear Sunfish , Catfish and some Tiger Muskie. I would fish low light times as it gets pretty warm out there during mid day and the fish will really bury themselves in the thick weeds that consume most of the lake. Fishing is good and if you are bank fishing you can walk just about around most of the lake. Fishing for bass I would use top water lures early and late in the day as well as spinner baits. Fishing for panfish I would stand on the boat dock (careful, a bit wobbly) and fish chopped up crawlers under a float and catch dozens. You can get the crawlers at the 7-11 in town. Fishing for cats I would use stink baits off the dam area. Let me know if you have any more questions.
Well... As it turns out the reunion was in Yuma, not Wray and everyone there convinced me to go to small lake there instead of Stalker.
Not a whole lot of action most of the time I was there so once the sun started going down I switched everything up and started picking up Sunfish. My son and I caught about 60 green sunfish and 1 really fat Bluegill. My son had a blast so that made it worth the trip.
Still wish I had ignored the Yuma folks and gone to Stalker. Oh well, next time.
