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, near full. Normal pool is 403.00 and we are at 402.75 above sea level. The normal lake level fishes about 605,061acres-ft, we are at 598,465 acres today or 98.9% of water capacity we are 0.25 low. I like to say that the people planning a trip to Lake Fork in the near future you need to be careful .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. The spawning season started last month with a lot of fish caught on first wave. Since then the fishing has been up and mostly down, due to constant weather conditions. The next wave of fish will be moving up on the April Moon, if the weather settles down. 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 APRIL is here now, next wave as mentioned above will be moving to the shallows to spawn, this a great time of year to catch some good fish. The fishing has been up and down. The big female Bass will be moving up to spawn. They will be found on main lake point and secondary point in deeper water close to spawning areas. The water temperature has been between 65degrees to 70 degrees lately due to recent cooler weather. Try shallow water, roads beds, secondary points, flats near deeper water, ditches, and tank dams. Carolina rigs rigged with Fluke’s, drop shots rigs, 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. If you are planning a trip to Lake Fork for the spawn now is the time to book your trip. We will fill up fast, as will the Marinas, so it better to make reservation soon as possible.

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 Home (903-383-2792 or Cell phone (225-573-0513) or email or my Website www Lake Fork Texas Guide. com
God bless and have a nice day.
