Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 10)

GOOD. Water Stained; 81 degrees; 0.16 feet above pool. Bass are good on Z-Man chatterbaits and lipless crankbaits early in 2-5 feet on points and grassy wind blown banks. Topwaters are hit-or-miss early on points. Carolina rigs, big shaky heads and Texas rigs are good in 10-25 feet of water on points, humps, drop offs. Big worms doing the best in these areas. Crankbaits are good over deep underwater ridges and humps with timber in 18-28 feet. Shad patterns and blue and chart Strike King 6XD or 8XD. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are chasing topwater patterns early in the day and later in the day when it is dark. Check out the brush piles as big bass are using them to feed on crappie. Bream are excellent in the shallows on wooly buggers and small poppers. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Lake Fork crappie fishing continues to be excellent going into the dog days of summer. Fish are in all the places they should be for this time of year. Look for crappie holding on brush piles, summer time trees, lay downs, bridges and docks. You can find fish in 14-30 feet right now but it seems like those fish will be above 14-16 feet as that is where the thermocline is showing up. One of the biggest keys to loading the boat with crappie has been finding the fish that haven’t been pressured as much. We are still having a lot of success with very small hand tied jigs in 1/16 ounce. Cut the tails down shorter to get those finicky bites to hook up. Minnows are producing bites but it seems the hook up ratio is much lower and we end up losing a lot of minnows to those finicky fish. Soft plastics will work on the more aggressive crappie too. Staying off huge groups of fish, pitching and swimming jigs will also help to keep those fish put a little longer. If you get the boat right over fish with the really bright sunny skies they will move off most times and relocate. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
