Lake Fork

Water Temp: 64 - 66
Water Clarity: Clear

My trips for next spring are beginning to take flight, so if you’re interested in a guided fishing trip with me on Lake Fork give me a holler! Driving the lake continues to be treacherous, so if you’re heading to Fork be extremely cautious. It looks like Lake Fork is up about 4” and that’s a start, we just need more rain.

Fishing this past week has been anything but good. We’ve had too many changes in the weather for fishing to be what it should. The deep bite is very unstable. We catching a lot of fish in the deeper water but not very many bass, but we have had a couple of opportunities where I think we may have missed some better fish. The shallow water fishing is more consistent but again it isn’t what it should be either. The bite hasn’t changed from what it has been over the last few weeks other than from one day to the next the plastic bite might be better than the crankbait bite. For just plain numbers a wacky-rig is picking up fish but they’re quit a bit smaller than what we’re catching with the light-weight C-rigs. Hydrilla is still the key ingredient and so are the secondary points and two-thirds of the way back in the coves and creeks.

With the upcoming weather changes I really think fishing will get considerably better and the fish should continue on with what baits we’ve throwing. 100 series Bandits, chartreuse/white spinnerbaits and light weight Carolina-rigs with a variety of watermelon is what we’ve caught the majority of our fish on. Jigs are producing a few bites, but not as good as I think it will be shortly.

The fall bite is my favorite time of the year to fish so come out, give me a call and let me show you why it’s my favorite time to fish!
