Lake Fork Fishing Reports (2024)

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (May 15)

GOOD. Water Stained; 70 degrees; 0.51 feet above pool. Bass fishing has improved this week. Topwaters are good early in the morning on grass lines. Flukes and Yum dingers good at the edge of the grass 2-4 feet of water. Midday points and drops are holding fish in 6-8 feet of water biting Carolina rigs and Texas rigs are good. Designated Hitters, rattlesnakes and beaver type baits are good on standing timber in 5-10 feet. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are in a post spawn pattern and aggressive. Topwaters are excellent in the shallow grass, streamers are working in the shallow banks. Crappies are shallow catching them on the edge of banks, small fish patterns like wooly buggers are a good bet. Bream are excellent in the shallows, wooly buggers and small poppers should bring a strike. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork is finally beginning to settle into its post spawn summer pattern. Black crappie are loading up on certain trees, brush piles and lay downs in huge numbers. White crappie should be loading up on their post spawn patterns over the next few weeks. If you can find the right structure you can load the boat quickly. Best depths have been 14-24 feet with lots of fish at the base of trees. Have seen some fish on bridges but it's been spotty. Swimming 1/16 hand tied jigs with a 1/4 ounce weight pegged above it has been a deadly pattern. You can also swim minnows with a 1/4 ounce weight about them as well. Soft plastics will work very well also. The catfishing has been super hot on baited holes around trees in 13-20 feet. Bait out an area with cattle cubes or sour grains. Then use any prepared catfish bait to catch them. Some fish are up shallow around grass spawning. Some are also shallow chasing recent shad spawns. Any bait of choice below corks will work to catch those super shallow fish. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
