It’s one of my favorite times of year here on Lake Fork! I’m often asked when the best time to come is. While there isn’t a good answer for that, I can say that May is a good month. The fishing tends to be more consistent this time of year.

That being said, this year has been a little more challenging, but we’re still catching some good ones. The colder weather we had in early spring spread the spawn out a little more than usual. That means fewer post spawners have been out feeding, but I’m sure more are coming soon. They should trickle out of the spawning areas to feed throughout the rest of this month.

The water level is currently 1.2’ below full pool. The water temperature is in the mid 60’s. Water clarity is pretty good over most of the lake, and abundant flooded vegetation is providing some great fish habitat.

I’m fishing shallow predominantly, but we’ll see more and more fish moving into their deeper offshore feeding areas over the next few weeks. Topwaters early, and then an assortment of Texas rigs and small swimbaits have been effective for me recently.

I hope you’re next trip to Lake Fork is a successful one. If I can be of any assistance on your upcoming trip, please let me know.
