Welcome to Lake Fork

Lake level is - .74 and slowly rising and surface temp is around 70. The rain just continues and we still have a few more days of it. The lake should be close to full after after all the run off. With it nearly full going into Winter it will be great for the Spring spawn. I have had cancellations all this week because of the nasty weather. But we've been catching them pretty good lately. The falling temps and rising water has them a lot more active. With a lot of areas just coming off of turnover the most active bite has been shallow. There's a lot of shad that that has moved up in the smaller creek arms. Small crank baits, spinner baits, tx. rig and drop shots are fishing well in 2 to 6' of water. Shad colors on your moving baits and darker colors on the soft plastics. Areas with some shrimp grass, coontail and mil foil have been most productive. As the water clears a little we will go back deeper and look for more consistent larger fish. The Yellow Bass ans Sand Bass will start showing up on the ridges, humps and road beds and we will get the spoon bite, drop shot and c-rig going. I love this time of year when this deeper bite gets on. I still have Oct. 21,22,23 and 28 open if someone wants one of these dates and have some good Nov. dates available. Nov. may be one of my favorite months for a chance of a giant here. If you need a guide you can call my cell @ 972 979 4850.

Good fishing,
