Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Report 6/6/2018

Lake Fork Guide, Eric Wright
My name is Eric Wright, I am a professional tournament angler and licensed full-time guide working on Lake Fork.

It’s been a very busy last couple of weeks but I wanted to put together a quick Lake Fork report. As you can see by the pictures we are catching some beautiful fish and the lake is in great shape! As of this post Lake Fork water level is currently 402.15 and temps have been 80-84 degrees.

Recently the morning top water bite only lasts about 20-30 minutes before I head off to deeper water. For the early bite I’m throwing a Spook and Yellow Magic (bone) As soon as the bite shuts off I’m heading out to deeper water.

DEEPER WATER 15-24 feet

I am spending the rest of the day and evening fishing main lake points, humps, road beds and a few pond dams. Here are the five baits I’m throwing.


Drop Shot with a ¼ to 3/8 oz weight and a #1 rigging hook. I like to throw this rig with a Zoom finesse worm (tomato and plum).

Carolina rig with a 1 oz weight, 5 foot leader and a #3 rigging hook with a Zoom fluke (mardi gras).

Football jig 3/8 oz (mexican heather) with a green pumpkin rage tail and

8XD Crankbait (Chartreuse Blue Back & Tennessee Shad)


I have also been catching some schooling fish in the evenings with a weightless fluke (white) or a Yellow Magic(bone)

For those looking to come out to Lake Fork - I have June 15, 21 and 22nd open along with a few evenings. I am also starting to book July and August and would love to have ya’ll out. 

Thanks, Eric Wright 972 757 7947
