Lake Fork Fishing Report

Report Submitted

Lake Fork Guide Gerald BoudreauxI like to start my report by letting you know the lake is in good condition. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 401.90 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061acres-ft, we are at 556,193 acres today or 91.9% of water capacity we are 1.56ft low. I like to say that the people planning a trip to Lake Fork you need to be careful you need to watch were you run. The lake water clarity is in good shape all over the lake. The fishing has been really good lately. Be careful while running the lake. Keep to main boat lanes real tight and watch where you are going always be cautious for floating timber. 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 loading and unloading your boats. Always show courtesy and respect to fellow Fisherman while on water.

The month of October is a good time to fish Lake Fork .Fish can be caught on just about anything you want to try. I like to mention that we had good spawns the last two years a lot of small fish and Shad are in upper Creeks. The fish are schooling all over the lake feeding up for the winter. There are a lot of fish shallow and near main lake points, secondary points and will be found in deeper water 15to25 ft, . The water temperature has been between upper 70’s to 80 degrees. The best baits to try are weightless Flukes, Carolina rigs with Fluke’s and worms, Swim Baits, 3/4 Shaky Head with Hag’s Tornado Baits, KVD 8 & 10 crank baits, Texas rigged with worms and Spinner Baits in Shad colors, wacky worms, Drop Shots, top water. Always look for the bird, which means bait fish are nearby and BASS aren’t far away. It helps to Use and understand your electronics to see what the bait fish and fish are doing, this will help you to eliminate a lot of Fishless waters.

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