Lake Fork Fishing Reports

 

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 10)

FAIR. Water stained; 80–83 degrees; 1.71’ low. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and topwaters. They appear to be starting the fall pattern in shallower water. This is great news for the lunker fisherman and continued reputation of producing the biggest largemouths in Texas. White and yellow bass are good on Alabama Rigs. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows in the stumps or man–made structures. Catfish are good on prepared bait and cut bait.
