Before coming to Lake Fork on your own its a great idea to check out a Lake Fork fishing report that is updated weekly. This will give you an idea what the fish are doing, what depth they are being caught, and what baits are working. I publish a weekly Lake Fork fishing report and keep it updated for all the fisherman. If you do not have a boat and want to come fishing, than consider using DSP Guide Service to have a great time on the lake and catch fish will doing so. I start my 16th year guiding on Fork in October, by the way is a great month to be on the lake fishing.
The bass bite has been slow, but I am catching a few bass early on spooks and a yellow magic in deeper water (24 ft) the first hour. After that, hitting a lot of places with the Carolina rig will also catch a few bass. The sand bass are running with the bass in the deeper water and you can catch them on spoons, swim baits, chrome rattle traps, and small spinners. The sand bass are big and from time to time you will catch a big bass with them!! Crappie and catfish are biting in my brush piles in deeper water on minnows, but since the weather has been above 100 each day the bite has slowed down some what. Minnows are the best bet and 24 feet has been the best depth.
I am expanding my guide service for 2016 to include a new 22 ft bay boat which will allow me to take small parties fishing for crappie, sand bass and catfish. I will be able to handle up to 6 adults on one trip, so get your 2016 trip on the books. Will be available late April. So keep up with all the fishing on Fork be reading my Lake Fork fishing report weekly or book your trip by email firstname.lastname@example.org or text me 940-902-3855.
