Current Lake Fork Fishing Report
As the water starts to warm and the spring spawn begins the key to finding fish is being able to locate or know where there is some submerged vegetation. If you can locate submerged vegetation in the backs of coves and creeks you should be able to locate bass. Remember that the north end of the lake will be the first area to warm and show spawning activity. Because of the low water situation some of the more traditional areas that bass have used to spawn may not be very good this year due to lack of water. Once you find an area that you believe is holding bass fish it slow and through. Red rattle baits and slow rolled spinner baits are always a good choice in late January, February and early March. Starting in mid February depending on water temperature I will switch to a chatter bait. Make sure that your chatter bait contacts stumps on the retrieve back to the boat as you will get some reaction strikes on these baits if you bump the stumps. Senko's fished slow in black and blue and green pumpkin are always good choices in March if the wind in not blowing hard. A Texas rig Lake Fork tackle ringed worm or the same bait on a shaky head fished close to standing timber in 2-5 ft will get you bit also in March and April. If you want to catch the big girls try throwing 3:16 rising son swim bait. Fish it really slow and hold on, the strikes are violent and exciting . Please be careful on the lake. We are experiencing very low water conditions and many are that you think are clear have underwater stumps that are very dangerous. I hope this information helps and if I can assist you in any way please let me know.
