Lake Fork Fishing Report

Lake Fork Guide Andrew Grills

Spring is moving right along here on Lake Fork! The fishing has been pretty good for my customers and I so far this season, and I'm looking forward to one of my favorite months. May is a transitional month, but it is also a month where the bass are generally hungry and in a feeding mode. The cold fronts that have rolled through regularly the past few months become less frequent, and conditions generally get more stable.

Lake Fork is right at full pool at this time. We have had plenty of rain this spring, but that's much better than low water. The spawn should be about complete, but I haven't seen any fry yet. There may be a few stragglers still waiting to come in and spawn, but I believe most of the fish have wrapped it up. That's just a guess. The water temperature is in the upper 60's to 70 degrees for now. .

I'm fishing shallow for the next few weeks, but that will likely change by the end of the month. As I mentioned earlier, May is a transitional month. At some point during the month, we will transition from spring patterns to summer patterns. That will mean looking deeper and switching to summertime techniques like carolina rigs, football jigs, and deep diving crankbaits. There may still be an early morning shallow bite, but the best success will probably be deeper. This transition usually occurs for me sometime in the middle of the month. I enjoy the deeper bite on Lake Fork, so I look forward to the change. .

Hopefully this report helps point you in the right direction as you prepare for a trip to Lake Fork. As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of any help to you. I'll leave you with a verse that was a great help to me earlier this week. “For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt thou not deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?” Psalm 56:13
