Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Report July 2019

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.

Just a few quick notes to help some of you coming out to Lake Fork.

As of this post the water level on Lake Fork is 402.80 and the water temperature is around 84-85 degrees. 

These are the baits I am throwing throughout the day.

BIG WORM - 1/2 oz Tungsten weight, #4 or #5 rigging hook

CAROLINA RIG 1 oz bullet weight 5' leader #3 rigging hook
(Mardi Gras, Watermelon Magic) Fluke - Make sure to dip the tail in chartreuse.

DROP SHOT - 5/16 oz weight with a 15 inch leader #2 Mosquito hook made by owner 4 inch finesse worm (Tomato, Plum)

WEIGHTLESS FLUKE #3 rigging hook (Disco Violet, Green, White)


I am starting out my mornings in about 15 feet of water on main lake points, humps & road beds. After 9:00 am, I am running out deeper 20 - 26 feet. If you can find these fish on the bottom you can make them eat. If these fish are suspended you can still catch them, it's just harder to do.

For the suspended fish I am throwing a Big Joe Spaits Flutter Spoon and a weightless fluke using a countdown method.

After 4:30 pm or so these fish are setting back up like they are first thing in the morning and are not as suspended.

I still have days open for the end of July and beginning of August.and would love to have y'all out. I hope the information can help some of you catch a few fish and to see you on Lake Fork!
