Lake Fork, Texas

Lake Fork, Texas


Welcome to Lake Fork...
the lake everyone is talking about!
Lake Fork is the hottest bass fishing lake in Texas. Lake Fork also ranks high on the top 50 list of largemouth bass caught in Texas. Lake Fork is a great fishing lake for any angler, with the lake's under-water structure and great vegetation which make Lake Fork the perfect fish habitat, not only for bass but crappie, catfish and bluegill. Lake Fork Reservoir has been enjoyed by thousands of bass fishing enthusiasts. Fishing has been particularly good due to fishery management efforts of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department who began stocking Lake Fork with Florida largemouth bass in 1978. Lake Fork was opened for fishing in the fall of 1980. A new state record largemouth bass weighing 18.18 pounds was caught from Lake Fork in January 1992. The lake has since gained the reputation of the hottest bass fishing lake in Texas.
