Gary Johnson's Fishing Report March 9
The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the low to mid 60's and the lake is a little over two feet low. The north end of the lake is slightly stained but all areas of the lake are fishing good. The spawn is in full swing as many fish are on beds and have been for a while. We are going all the way to the backs of the pockets and fishing very shallow water. Best baits have been weightless soft plastics such as Senkos and flukes. We are fishing these baits very slowly and even dead sticking the baits in order to generate strikes. Most of our fish have been males but the big girls are in the area. For faster moving baits we are using chartreuse chatter baits and shallow running crank baits. If you can fish these baits close to timber you will get more strikes. Many of our fish are coming tight to cover and have a small strike zone. Buzz baits, frogs and swim baits should be great baits in the next few days as the water continues to warm.
This is a great time to be on Lake Fork to have a lot of fun and have the chance to also catch a big fish. I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. I still have some good dates available so call early for best available dates. Until next time good luck and good fishing!
Until next time, good luck and good fishing!
