Lake Fork Anglers Results From August 12

Fishing is definitely getting tougher for the bank beating anglers. But at least it wasn't as hot as it could have been. Overall the fish caught this week were smaller than anytime so far this year.  A record number of anglers fished today since we have resumed after the worse of covid. We have a good setup for social distancing while still being able to fish and enjoy the day.

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.
