Submitted: 2-7-15

I would like to start my report by letting you know the lake level is down to 7.02 ft below normal as of 2/7/15. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 395.98 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061 acres-ft, we are at 468,119 acs-ft today or 72.2 % of water capacity. The lake is slowly dropping due to lack of heavy rain. We had a 1.2 inches last week it helped turn level a little but we need a lot to bring lake to normal levels. The lake water clarity still looks good on main lake and a little stain in Creeks. I like to say that the people planning a trip to Lake Fork in the near future, that lake levels are still dropping due to lack of rain, you need to be very careful while running the lake. Keep to main boat lanes real tight and watch where you are going, because of underwater timber, be cautious and show courtesy to your fellow fishermen. I would recommend to you that once you leave the main boat lanes, to idle to where ever you are going to fish, if you are not familiar with the area, it is better to be safe than sorry. Also be careful while launching your boats, take it slowly while loading and unloading your boats at ramps.

The month of February can produce some Hogs on Lake Fork .The spawning season is right around the corner. It time to start booking spring Trips. As for fishing, it has been up and down depending on the weather. We caught some nice Bass 4to6pds, fishing the creeks channels edge with Jigs and trailers of choice. I also like to let you know I fished with Caption Johnnie Guice Tuesday and we caught at least 200 sand bass, we had a ball. We caught them in 52ft. of water, using ˝ ounce jig with Berkley gulp minnows. If you want to catch sand bass, call Caption Johnnie at ( 903-383-7274) you will have a ball. The water temperature is in the upper forty to lower fifties. Fishing the creeks channels is what I like to do at this time of year. Flipping the stumps along the creeks with a jigs and trailer of choice on the edge of the creeks can be deadly. Also the Jerks baits and Rattle traps will produce some hogs at this time of year. Also try roads beds, secondary points, flats near deeper water, ditches, pond dams. You can also catch fish in deeper water on main lake points and secondary points in main lake creeks channels. CC rigs, drop shots rigs, Small Swim Baits, Alabama Rigs, Crank baits and Jigs are some of the baits to try in deeper water . Always look for the bird, which means bait fish, and BASS aren’t far away. It helps to Use and understand your electronics to see what the bait and fish are doing, this will help you to eliminate a lot of Fishless waters. If you are planning a trip to Lake Fork for the spring now is the time to start bookings your trip. We will fill up fast.

For the crappie fisherman the bite has been Ok on brush pile and by bridges, Minnows and jigs are the baits. This will conclude my report for this time.
