Lake Fork Fishing Report

Report Submitted: 6-4-18Lake Fork Pro Guide Gary Johnson

The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the high 80’s with an occasional reading of 90 degrees and the lake is about one foot low. The fish have moved out to traditional summer holes. We have been fishing main Lake points, road beds and bridges. Our best bite has been from five in the afternoon until dark. Best techniques have been Carolina rigs with a three foot leader rigged with a watermelon colored baby brush hog. We are fishing these in eight to twenty foot of water on extended points, humps or road beds. We also had good success this past week with a drop shot in about ten foot of water on points with Zoom finesse worms.

In low light conditions the bass are beginning to school in many places on the lake. Best baits for these fish have been rattle traps, Senkos and small swim baits. No big fish in these schools but they are a lot of fun to catch. Also, be sure and throw a drop shot in these schooling fish after they quit schooling and go down.

I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. I have some good dates open in June and July so call early for best available dates at 214-205-0540.

Until next time, good luck and good fishing!
