Fishing Report from TPWD (May 31)

GOOD. Water Stained; 80 degrees; 0.79 feet below pool. Bass are slow on frogs and topwaters early around points with flooded vegetation. Carolina rigs or flukes will land a few bites on points and humps in 7-12 feet of water, or deep crankbaits fished in 15-18 feet of water around timber and drop offs near points. The bite should improve on windy days, but lately there has been very little wind Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Black bass are good on topwater frogs and bait fish pattern lures on flooded timber and grass. Bream are excellent on beds. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork keeps getting hotter and hotter along with the Texas heat. Fish are loading up on trees, brush and lay downs in 18-28 feet. Bridges are also a good place to look for a mess of crappie on sunny days. You may have to search around to find the columns that are holding good fish. A lot of fast limits this past week on small hand tied jigs on my boat and minnows have also been producing strong for some guides and anglers. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
