More Info

The Annual Lake Fork Open High School Scholarship Tournament has been cancelled for 2020.

APRIL 1, 2020 - After careful consideration of the health and safety of everyone in our community, state, county, and in the sport of bass fishing -- we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Lake Fork Open High School Scholarship tournament, scheduled for July 17-19, 2020, here at Lake Fork Texas.

We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our high school students, their parents, boat captains, and sponsors. But we believe it is the right decision based on current information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are sending this message to our chamber members, former and current tournament participants, high schools that have participated in the past, and our Facebook friends,

We thank everyone who has been involved in our tournament. We've enjoyed hosting them for the past six years and hope to continue again with tournament number seven in July of 2021.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact us at:

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 1)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 83-85 degrees; 0.39 low. Largemouth bass are good on blue plastic worms, bladed jigs and crankbaits near drop-offs,windy points, grass lines, and humps in 8-22’. Topwater plugs and plastic frogs are productive early in grass patches and lily pads. White and yellow bass are good in deeper water of main lake points, flats, and humps. Crappie are excellent on jigs and minnows in 18-25’ in brush piles and standing timber. Catfish are good on cut bait and live bait in 10-20’.
