Fishing Report from TPWD (Mar. 15)

GOOD. Water Stained; 63 degrees; 1.69 feet below pool. Bass are good on topwater frogs in the flooded grass. Flukes and senkos have been really good along the edge of the flooded grass in 2-4 feet. Darker colors are best such as black and blue and June bug. Texas rigs are good with beaver type baits in black and blue along the edge of the grass and some stumps 2-4 feet. Main lake points with spinnerbaits are good on windy points. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Cooler weather is affecting the movement of the black bass, as the water cools the females are not committing to the beds but, as the water warms activity increases. Be ready with a slow subsurface presentation in 3-4 feet or weedless topwater in flooded grass. Crappie are beginning to move towards the banks, try small bead heads fished slowly 3-4 feet. Carp and gar are spawning in shallow water. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork is getting really hot. Seeing great numbers and lots of big fish each day. The fish are making huge moves shallow this week and will for the next month. Areas in 2-13 feet are finally beginning to see more fish that are spawning. The 14-32 feet staging areas are also still loaded with fish and reloading daily now. Seeing lots of fish roaming in open water but the best luck is still coming on fish on timber or brush. Small hand tied jigs in chartreuse or orange are getting crushed right now, and you can still catch fish well on soft plastics and minnows. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
