The September meeting of the Lake Fork Chapter of The Well Armed Woman had 21 ladies dodging thunderstorms and rain.  The range was closed due to lightening but the fundamentals continued indoors.   Tables were set up as shooting lines and targets were taped to the wall.  Short scenarios were practiced to see how directions could be followed.  Several learned they needed more practice in simply following directions.  It was a fun exercise to say the least.

The evening program continued…the NRA Winchester Challenge was covered in detail.  Target scoring was explained and handouts of each of the rockers that could be earned was further explained.  A large chart was introduced to show the levels and rockers each has earned.  This not only gives incentive for each to work harder it gives a sense of accomplishment when the rockers are received.  One member is working hard to show her son-in-law that she really is an Annie Oakley!

Please join us next month (October 6th) for a holster program.  You will be able to see firsthand what holster is best for you.  Non-members are welcome but you will need to be a member before you can shoot…it’s an insurance requirement. We shoot at 4pm and our meeting will begin at 6pm.  For more information contact  Peggy York, Lake Fork Chapter Leader at 903-473-2185.

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 17)

GOOD. Water stained; 77–82 degrees; 1.85’ low. Fall bass fishing is in full swing. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits, and topwaters. Lunker fisherman continue to work around 10–15 feet of depth. White and yellow bass are good on Alabama rigs. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows in the stumps or man–made structures. Catfish are good on prepared bait and cut bait especially in the evenings.
