Lake Fork Fishing Report

Report Submitted

Lake Fork Guide Gerald BoudreauxI would like to start my report by letting you know the lake level is down to 2.96 ft below normal as of 4/5/15. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 400.04 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061 acres-ft, we are at 561,918 acs-ft today or 87.7 % of water capacity. The lake is slowly rising due to rain we had today. The lake water clarity still looks good on main lake and stain in Creeks. I like to say that the people planning a trip to Lake Fork in the near future, lake levels are still low, 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, floating timber due to recent rain be cautious 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 spawning season is here. As for fishing, it has been picking up. There been a lot of Big fish caught this last week. We caught some nice fish this week on c-rigs with lizards, 3 to 9pds, fishing in shallow water. The water temperature is 60 t0 70 degrees. The fish are moving into shallow water, if and when you find them can be rewarding. We have been finding a lot of fish in about 1 to5 ft. of water. The Swim baits, chatter bait, Crigs has been producing a lot of fish. Try roads beds, secondary points, flats near deeper water, ditches, tank dams. C 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, as will the Marinas.

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.
