Welcome to Lake Fork

The lake level is currently -1.60 and water temp is the mid 70s. Fall is here and I'm excited about it This could be one of the better Fall bites we've seen in a while. A lot of fish are in transition right now.As the water cools down many fish will be moving back on the flats close to creek channels, edges of creek sand on shallow main lake timber.The lake is in it's annual turnover and as the water cools a little more it should be over. At this time the shallower bite will be the most productive. There are always deeper fish to be caught but with the depleted oxygen that occurs when the lake is in turnover the fish are not very aggressive and don't feed as much. Once this cycle has completed you can catch them well deep and shallow. Large schools of bass can be found in water as deep as 35 ft. feeding on shad, small sand bass and yellow bass.That's what great about Fall you can fish both worlds and be very successful. On the shallow bite drop shots, wacky rigs, shaky head and texas rig plastics will all work at giving times. Crank baits, swim jigs, chatter baits spinner baits and some top waters will also be good.You have a large variety of options.I like to throw one or several of these moving baits to find fish shallow. Once that bite stops settle down and throw plastics in the same area to get more bites. Later in October I like to go back deeper myself. Will throw drop shot, c-rigs, spoons, shaky head and football jigs. Will concentrate on deeper road beds,hump, and extended points. That's whats great about Fall your not limited on what to use. Just go fish your favorite baits or strong point.Just remember shad are their main forage at this time of rear.The Berkley tournament is coming Oct. 17 and 18 so let me know if you want to pre fish for it .Also I have date available if you want just book a trip. I would love to earn your business. You can call or text me @ 972 979 4850. Also email is Website is As always thanks for reading my report!
