Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 12)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 87-91 degrees; 1.15 low. Largemouth bass are good on plum, and dark green plastic craws, diving crankbaits, bladed jigs and chatter baits near standing timber, points and drop-offs in 14-28’. Some early mornings offer topwater action with topwater plugs, poppers, and chatter baits. White and yellow bass are good in deeper water of main lake drop-offs, flats and humps. Crappie are good on jigs and minnows in 18-25’ in brush piles and standing timber. Catfish are good on cut bait and prepared bait in 12-24’.
