Lake Fork Anglers Results From April 14

Is it ever going to be warm in the morning? Much like 2-4 weeks ago it was still Brrrr this morning and but a little lighter.  Is Dennis Bubinas ever going to come in second? Man is that guy on fire.

The lake is still down about 6', but if you are careful and follow your trails if local or stay near the marked boat lanes you should be OK.

With today's full moon there are some bass on beds. Water temps today were between 65 and 67. I'd say since many of the fish that didn't get to spawn in February and March due to the unseasonable cold water will be catching up this week and again on the new moon (in 15.9 days) later this month.

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

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.
