Lake Fork Angler Results From September 23

Shiver, shiver.  It was 43 when I left my house at the north end of Lake Fork. And it continued to be chilly on the 70 MPH boat ride from Running Creek to Chaney. Most of the winners caught their fish pretty shallow on plastics. The full moon last night may have contributed to the slow fishing early. Also even those lot of fish were caught the weights were way down.

All fish 10" and up are keepers. Only the best 5 count.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 20)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 75-76 degrees; 2.05 feet low. Bass fishing has been slow due to the Fall turnover, but should improve very soon with the cooler weather approaching. Bass are liking white or chartreuse chatterbaits, shad colored squarebills, jerkbaits, and wacky rigged senkos in shallow water. Crappie are very good on jigs and minnows in brush piles and standing timber in 15-20 feet of water. Catfish are excellent on self baited holes in 20-35 feet of water.
