Lake Fork Fishing Report

Report Submitted: 2-17-17Lake Fork Pro Guide Gary Johnson
The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the high 50's with an occasional 60 degree reading and the lake is a little under 3 feet low. The water clarity around the dam is good and on the lower end is slightly stained but still in good shape. All of our fishing has been shallow inside 8 feet of water. Best baits have been white chatterbaits and red rattle traps. We are throwing these baits all the way to the bank as some fish are already very shallow. Most of our fish have been smaller male fish but the big females will be up soon. Our best days have been when we get two or three days in a row with a warming trend. The soft plastic bite should be a factor in the next couple of weeks. Wacky worms and flukes in any of the watermelon colors usually work well. This is a great time to be on Lake Fork as your opportunity to catch a fish of a Lifetime is greatly increased. 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. I still have some great dates left for the spring so call early for best available dates.

Until next time, good luck and good fishing!
