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.
