Lake Fork Fishing Report
Report Submitted: 8-20-2021
It’s hard to believe we are already well into August! The fishing has been fairly consistent for me this summer. I’ve had a lot of happy customers, but many of our good trips were anchored by a big fish “making the day”. My numbers haven’t been great, but that’s just how it goes for me. I’m thankful for the personal bests, that’s what makes the memories.
The water level is holding well this summer. We are just .72’ below full pool at the time of this report. The stable water level should benefit the overall health of the lake.
My favorite technique this summer has been dragging a football jig. It seems like everybody else is catching fish on big worms, but I like a jig myself. Santone’s Pro Football Jig is the way to go for me. Honestly, several colors have worked well for me this summer, with PB & J and Mexican Heather topping the list.
There’s a ton of techniques that will potentially work if you find some fish though. Big spoons, deep diving crankbaits, and Carolina rigs are good choices of course.
I hope your next trip to Lake Fork is a great one! Let me know if I can help while you’re here. I’ll leave you with a passage from the Bible that has been an encouragement to me this past month. “But God who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved).” Ephesians 2:4 & 5.
