Gary Johnson's Fishing Report April 22
The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the high 60's to low 70's and the lake is full. There are still some fish on beds but we are concentrating on post spawn bass. We are concentrating on secondary points and windy banks where the shad may be located. Most of the fish we are catching are feeding up on shad so locating schools of bait fish is the key. Secondary points, shallow road beds and pond dams are key areas. There is also a shad spawn going on in some areas. Best time to capitalize on this is early morning before the sun hits the water using small willow leaf spinner baits and yellow magics. As the sun gets up we are switching to flukes fished on the outside edges of the grass. We are also beginning to catch fish on Carolina rigged baby brush hogs on deeper points in 3-10 feet of water. I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. If you are looking for a professional guide trip please give me a call at 214-205-0540.
