They said it might rain. At Last. And about 10 AM we got a pretty good shower. Water temp at 86 and for us it was a struggle. The story on the water was all about the haves and have not.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...

We fished section 3 today. All bass 10" and up count. MLF format, where every fish you catch counts including slots.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 25)

FAIR. Water Stained; 56-59 degrees; 5.47 feet below pool. Bass are more active on warmer days in the backs pockets and secondary points going into the pockets. Target the warmest pockets with chatterbaits and spinnerbaits in 2-4 feet of water. Fish are traveling in the creek towards the back on warmer days and moving outwards on cooler days . Those along the creek are best on red squarebill crankbaits in a 1.5-2.5 inch around the edges and big wood 3-6 feet of water. Texas rigs with creature type baits flipped at the big wood on creeks and ditches are good in black and blue colors and June bug in 3-6 feet of water. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Black bass are beginning the early stages of pre-spawn. Try slow moving suspending streamers and sculpin patterns in 5-7 feet of water. Crappie are deep. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Crappie are really good around deep main lake timber in 38-56 feet along creek channels. Fish have been a little more scattered the past week, so it is necessary to cover more water to catch limits. Seeing big white crappie mixed in with lots of smaller black crappie. Minnows will work very well and small soft plastics and hand ties are working well. Best colors for my boat have been purple and chartreuse. Getting good reports of brush pile fish biting as in 20-30 feet. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
