Lake Fork Fishing Report

Lake Fork Guide Eddie GarrettReport Submitted: 3-5-17
Welcome to Lake Fork
Water level is -2.09 and surface temps are varying from 59 to 61 on main lake to sometimes 62 to 64 in the back of some of the coves. With the mild Winter there are fish being caught on beds in some areas already. The lake is very close to being on fire with a lot of fish pulling up now. It's in great shape and will be a good Spring. You can catch them on a variety of baits right now and in different depths. We're concentrating on pre spawn areas in 3' to 7' of water. On the main lake try points that have gradual or extended slopes with wood. Key on the larger wood which has the best root system. Also on the secondary points fish on the sides of them and ditches leading into spawning areas. Later on the warmer days we're going on in the back of coves on spawning flats where the water gets the warmest. Drop shots, jigs, c-rigs, Senkos, tx rigs shaky heads and wacky worms will all get you bit as far as plastics go. Just experiment until you find something that works for you. On windy days spinner baits, small cranks and under spins with swim baits will work well. A bait that been fishing well in windier conditions in these areas is a Owner flashy spin with a Xcite Shadnasty swim bait in Killer Gill and Chartrusion color. On plastics your Watermelons, Green Pumpkins and black and blue fleck will all fish well on particular days. It's just early March so there are still fish in all different depths out there but that's the areas we are concentrating on. Thanks for reading my report and hope these tips will help you catch a few more fish. I have some good days open still this month and April so book your trip soon because it's going to be a GREAT Spring. You can contact me by email  or call my cell @ 972-979-4850.
