Lake Fork Anglers Results for September 16

Starting at 6:45 AM it was still pretty dark. Water Temps are down to 80 degrees. Today was the first time we have gone back to full day fishing ending at 3 PM. The fish were biting for most. The fact that today was the day before the Sealy Outdoors tournament started there were a whole big bunch of boats on the water pre-fishing.

The MLF format counts every fish over 10" including slots . We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...

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.
