Lake Fork Anglers Results From July 28

It was blowing pretty good out of the south at registration and never really got better during the morning. But despite that the fish were biting for most. And some good ones too. Lots of small slots were caught along with a couple of bigger fish.

But the lake level is starting to be a problem. Down almost 7' right now and losing an inch every day. Without some really big rain event the lake will probably be down 8-9 fee by the fall. NOT GOOD!

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