Lake Fork Anglers Results From January 13

So, how does our lake fish down 6 1/2'? It has been about 7 years since the last time we dealt with low water and actually for the boaters not to bad. For the co-anglers it was NOT to GOOD.

Light winds and modest temps for mid-January. Actually, got up to almost 70.

We caught 32 keepers today with seven anglers skunking again.. With resurgence of the virus we are going back to stricter protocols and even have a couple members out both ill, in recovery and hibernating..

The LFA fishes every Thursday except T-Day and Christmas on 2 different formats. A 5 fish limit we call LFA and a MLF style format where every fish counts, we call Hard Core, 3 special tournaments and an end of year dinner

Right now we are looking for more members. Boaters & Co-anglers. BOATERS FISH FOR FREE.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 29)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 6.17 feet low. Crappie are stacked up like crazy on brush piles, laydowns, underwater bridges and standing timber in 13-28 feet of water. Finally starting to see more white crappie loading in the deeper timber as well in numbers. The bite has been a little more up and down this week with the changes in the temperature. Some days double limits are super easy and some days we have to work harder. Straight minnows are still the ticket, but hand ties and soft plastics will put fish in the boat. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Largemouth bass are good early in the morning, but the bite ends by noon most days. Big worms Texas or Carolina rigged and big shaky heads are working best in 12-25 feet of water on points and humps. Best colors are plum, blue fleck, and tequila sunrise. Deep crankbaits are working well in creek channel bends and deep humps 22-30 feet of water. Best colors will be chartreuse, blue, black and shad patterned. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
