Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 3)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 81-85 degrees; 0.17’ high. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, topwater and crankbaits near roadbeds, submerged structure, and points in 8-12’ and with some action with plastic frogs in shallow grass and lily pads. White and yellow bass are excellent in the deeper water of main lake points, flats, and humps. Crappie are excellent on jigs and minnows in 12-20’ in brush piles. Catfish are good on cut bait and punch bait in 8-20’.
