Welcome to Lake Fork

Water level is -4.38 and surface temp is lower 50s. This is the best water level we've had since early last Winter. We had a pretty severe cold front here last week then some much needed rain. The ground was already saturated so most of it was runoff into the lake. Looking at the extended future forecast it looks fairly mild heading toward Spring. These big females will start heading toward their pre spawn haunts early this year. I like to start fishing the upper Northern part of the lake stating in early Feb. and continuing staying on that end through March. The water will always be a little warmer and that's where they will start spawning first. Main lake and secondary points at mouths of the larger creeks are idea early staging places. On a little warmer trend move on into the creeks and fish larger wood on the sides of them. Also try spawning flats outside the creeks in the warmer afternoons. A lot of baits will work for these pre spawners. Jigs, suspended jerk baits, chatter baits, spinner baits, cranks and I like a c-rig with a creature bait. With the lake level on the rise this should be a good pre spawn and spawn this year. If you need a guide please feel free to call or text me. 972 979 4850. More info @ You can also book online. As always thanks for reading my report.

Tight Lines!
