Lake Fork Fishing Reports

 

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (May 22)

GOOD. Water Stained; 72 degrees; 0.35 feet above pool. Bass are improving to good early morning on topwaters around flooded grass and weeds, an frogs working over pond weed. Yum dingers and flukes are really good at the edge of the grass. Texas rigs are working on the outside edge of the weed line in 3-5 feet of water. Some offshore fish are starting to show up on points and creek channel bends. The bite is fair on Carolina rigs with a 10 inch blue fleck in 14-17 feet. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are in a summer pattern. Top waters are excellent in the shallow grass, streamers are working in the shallow banks and creek channels. Bream are excellent in the shallows, wooly buggers and small poppers should bring a strike. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork was definitely moving into the steady summer pattern this week. We are still seeing great numbers of black crappie on lay downs and certain trees in 14-28 feet. You can also find black crappie on certain docks and bridges over the next few months. We have been seeing lots of small white crappie on brush piles but some bigger keepers showed up the last few days. These will continue to get better and better over the next few weeks. Focus on brush piles in 14-22 feet for the best fish. Some summer time trees are also holding white crappie and that will also get better over the next few weeks. Minnows are working well and small hand tied jigs in neutral colors are working just as well when you pitch and swim them over fish. Soft plastics will also get you a bite. The channel catfishing is excellent as it always is on Lake Fork. Bait you a hole near timber in 18-25 feet close to a creek channel. Use cattle cubes or sour grain to attract and hold those fish. Trees that have overnight roosting birds are a great place to make your hole. Use any prepared catfish bait of choice to load the boat once you get the fish loading up. You can st
