Lake Fork

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 18)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.46 feet low. The crappie bite on Lake Fork is heating up more than the temperature right now. Post spawn fish are stacking up on timber, lay downs and brush this week in big numbers. They are hungry and will bite almost anything you drop on them. Minnows are still the best producer with hand tied jigs a close second. Best depths seem to be 10-23 feet of water. The next few months are the best months to load the boat with good eater sized crappie. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Bass are good with an early morning topwater bite on points. Shad patterned spinnerbaits are working well in 1-4 feet of water on windy points and banks. Carolina rigs are very good on main lake points and secondary points. Lizards are good in 4-10 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
