Jerry E. Miller, former Mayor of Yantis and Director of the Yantis Catfish Classic announced that the 2020 Catfish Classic Tournament has been postponed and will now be held on the first weekend in October 2020, from The Minnow Bucket Marina on Lake Fork.

If you have already entered the tournament, contact the Minnow Bucket to move your reservations to the October 3/4 dates.

The annual Classic has long served as a well-attended fishing recreation open to Youth through Seniors, as well as a successful fundraiser for the Yantis Fire Department. In 2019, the Classic yielded $15,000 in fund for the local volunteer fire department. For information, phone 903-950-9500.

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 3)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 81-85 degrees; 0.17’ high. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, topwater and crankbaits near roadbeds, submerged structure, and points in 8-12’ and with some action with plastic frogs in shallow grass and lily pads. White and yellow bass are excellent in the deeper water of main lake points, flats, and humps. Crappie are excellent on jigs and minnows in 12-20’ in brush piles. Catfish are good on cut bait and punch bait in 8-20’.
