Lake Fork Anglers Results From December 9

It has been cold all week and today supposed to be in the mid 70's.  It actually broke a record from 1905 and 2020 at 81. And it may have helped the fishing some. But out of all those fishing there were only 4 limits caught. Did I mention the pretty strong NW winds. That sure didn't help.

Today is the first 5 fish limit format (known as the LFA) tournament beginning our 9th year.

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



  1. First Place went to Bob Roberts of Longview with 10 bass for 15.89 LB with the boater lunker of 4.31 LB.
  2. Second Place went to Curt Blount of Lake Fork with 14 bass for 15.15 LB with a 3.31 LB lunker

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.
