Lake Fork Guide Gerald BoudreauxI like to start my report by letting you know the lake is in good condition and full. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 404.02 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061acres-ft, we are at 605061 acres today or 100% of water capacity we are 1ft over. I like to say that the people planning a trip to Lake Fork in the near future you need to be careful the lake is full and you need to watch were you run. The lake water clarity is still a little cloudy on main Lake and stains in upper Creeks. We have a lot of water to fish this year due to all the rain we had.. The spawning season is slowly coming to a end. The fishing has been up and mostly down, due to constant weather conditions. Be careful while running the lake. Keep to main boat lanes real tight and watch where you are going, 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 May is here now and the fishing has been up and down. Due to all the recent rains the lake has been through a lot of unsettled conditions. By this I mean the gates have been open a lot the last month which does effect fishing but saying that there is some fish been caught. The Baits I’m hearing that are working best are 316 swim bait, 1.5KVD in shad colors and CRIG’S with flukes. The fish will be found shallow structure, main lake point and secondary point near deeper water15 TO 20ft.. The water temperature has been between 72degrees to 78 degrees. Try shallow water, roads beds, secondary points, flats near deeper water, ditches, and tank dams. Carolina rigs rigged with Fluke’s, drop shots rigs, 1.5 or 2.5 square Bill KVD shad colors, Large 316 and Small Swim Baits, Alabama Rigs are Baits to try. 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 Ok on brush pile, humps and by bridges, Minnows and jigs are the baits. This will conclude my report for this time.

If you are planning a trip to Lake Fork or care to fish other area Lakes in the near future, and would like to spend a nice day on the water, and pass a good time with a Cajun please feel free to call me at 225-573-0513 or email gpboudreaux0513@gmail.com  or my Website www Lake Fork Texas Guide. com
