Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Report 3-30-2018

by
Lake Fork Guide, Eric Wright
My name is Eric Wright, I am a professional tournament angler and licensed full-time guide working on Lake Fork.




Spring is finally here and is an excellent time on Lake Fork to offer anglers of all experience levels the opportunity to come catch some giant bass!


As of this post the water level on Lake Fork is 402.96 and the water temperature where I am fishing is currently 64 degrees. The mornings here on Lake Fork can still be a little cool, so if you are coming out make sure to check the weather.


Recently the most common question asked is about water clarity. Lake Fork has received a lot of water this season and is currently dingy. This will change. The cleanest water I am finding is around mid-lake and we are ABSOLUTELY sight fishing.


This time of year I primarily use three baits.


When I am fishing secondary points, I will either use a drop shot or split shot rig. I set up my drop shot with a #1 rigging hook and a 1/4 oz weight (tomato). For the split shot rig I like to use a Fluke with a #3 rigging hook and 1/4 oz weight (Mardi Gras).


When I'm sight fishing, I throw a Texas rigged Paca Craw with a #3 rigging hook and a 5/16 Tungsten weight (Blk/Blu or Okeechobee Craw).


For those of you looking to come to Lake Fork for a guided trip, I would love the opportunity to help you catch a fish of a lifetime. Whether you are a first time or seasoned angler, I take pride in working hard to make sure each trip is a success. I currently have a few open slots left for April and I am starting to book May and June. If you have any questions or to book a trip, please feel free to give me a call.


Thanks, Eric Wright
