Check out my Lake Fork fishing report to know when to catch one of these!

The last Lake Fork fishing report for 2016 finds the lake a little over 3 feet below normal and the surface temperature at the north end of the lake at 52 and the lower end at 55 degrees. Another big cool down is forecast for mid week next week. On yesterdays bass fishing trip, my clients caught 2,3,4,and 5 pounders in fairly shallow water on crank baits and black/blue 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz jigs with a real pork trailer. Black #11 port trailer is what I use when the water gets colder. Bass were caught in 4-8 feet of water. Had to work the jig pretty slow. The black/blue jig bite will be good right into March. Bass will just move deeper as the water cools off more. Now as for the crappie, they continue to bite under the main lake bridges, and on the flats around the damn. Minnows and jigs both are catching good messes. Best color jig has been the electric chicken color (green/pink) and the best depth has been 26-30 feet. I am still finding some in my brush piles also. The big sand bass are moving and you can catch them on spoons (gold) on some of the main lake points. Now is the time to be booking your 2017 fishing trip on lake fork.
