Lake Fork Fishing Report
While the fishing has been a little tough this past month, I’m still impressed with the quality of fish we are catching here on Lake Fork.
Surprisingly, the lake is still less than 2 feet low. That's pretty good considering how hot, dry, and windy July was. The water temperature is in the upper 80's at the moment. Overall numbers have been lower this month for me, but the quality has been good. I'm guilty of being hard headed though. When certain techniques and areas have been proven big fish producers for me, I have a hard time changing. Sometimes that works in our favor, sometimes it doesn't. I have probably thrown a Santone jig more than anything else this past month. I've heard a lot about big worms this summer, but jigs have been working fine for me. Other techniques are producing as well. I’m also doing some cranking, and others are getting bit on carolina rigs, spoons, and drop shots. 15-25 feet deep is the range. I know that is vague. While one specific depth is usually going to be best, you’ll find some a little deeper and some a little more shallow.
It's also important to be looking for schooling activity on or near the surface right now. That's going to be more of a numbers deal, but you will occasionally get a big one mixed in there with them. If it's flat and calm, it's a good idea to be watching.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re planning a trip to Lake Fork. I’ll help any way I can. Next thing you know it’ll be hoodie time. I Peter 3:18 says, “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit."Andrew Grills
