Lake Fork

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 29)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 6.17 feet low. Crappie are stacked up like crazy on brush piles, laydowns, underwater bridges and standing timber in 13-28 feet of water. Finally starting to see more white crappie loading in the deeper timber as well in numbers. The bite has been a little more up and down this week with the changes in the temperature. Some days double limits are super easy and some days we have to work harder. Straight minnows are still the ticket, but hand ties and soft plastics will put fish in the boat. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Largemouth bass are good early in the morning, but the bite ends by noon most days. Big worms Texas or Carolina rigged and big shaky heads are working best in 12-25 feet of water on points and humps. Best colors are plum, blue fleck, and tequila sunrise. Deep crankbaits are working well in creek channel bends and deep humps 22-30 feet of water. Best colors will be chartreuse, blue, black and shad patterned. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
