I would like to start my report by letting you know the lake level is down to 3.84 ft below normal as of 04/13/14. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 399.16 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061 acres-ft, we are at 540,842 acres-ft today or 84.2% of water capacity, the recent rain helped some. I hope we can get more rain soon so the lake can start back 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 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, 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.

March has come and gone already, it was up and down as for the fishing. Weather had a big part in it, but with that been said a lot of fish was caught. April is here now nothing much has changed, we have good days and bad. The weather has got to get stable. The water temperature has been up and down (56to68degrees). As I write this report there another front on our door step. I would like to mention that Mr. Jimmy Wilson from Edin, OK. Caught a 10 ˝ pound, 24.5 inches on Saturday April 12 with me, Congratulations to Jimmy. The fish I've been catching are in about 4 to7ft. of water on Shaky Head or Screw Lock with a Berkley Chigger Claw or Shenko’s as trailers. As it warms up, I go to a weightless senkos, or fluks. Try the creeks, secondary points, channels, breaks in different coves, flats near deeper water, ditches, pond dams, shallows, and the fish will be around these type areas. You can also catch some in deeper water on main lake points and secondary points in main lake creeks. CC rigs, Small Swim Baits, Stick Baits, Alabama Rigs, and Mark Pack New Jigs are some of the good baits to try in deeper water. This time of year is a good time to catch a bass of a lifetime on Fork. I would like to mention that the Grass is really coming back on Northern Coves of the Lake. Always look for the bird, which means that bait fish, 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 at trip to Lake Fork  call soon, the rooms are starting to fill up for those that need them at the Marina’s, the Spawn is on, if the warm weather holds the fishing will be great. For the crappie fisherman the bite has been pretty good they are spawning also in shallows, Minnows and jigs are the baits. This will conclude my report for this time.
