Lake Fork Facts From Eddie:
Lake Fork Size: 27,700 acres
Age: Impoundment began 1980, filled to capacity 1985
Location: Approximately 75 miles east of downtown Dallas, five miles west of Quitman, just east of U.S. Highway 69.
Description: The dam impounds Lake Fork Creek, a tributary of the Sabine River. Other major creeks are Big Caney and Little Caney. The water is usually stained to moderately clear, with widespread distribution of hydrilla and other flooded vegetation. Most standing timber was left in the original reservoir basin.
Structure: Flooded timber is found throughout Lake Fork and provides a excellent fish habitat. Although access through the reservoir is provided by numerous buoyed boat lanes, submerged timber can be a substantial hazard, so care should be exercised while boating in all areas. Fishing with your best Lake Fork bass fishign guide, Eddie, will ensure your safety navigating this puzzle. Areas containing hydrilla, boathouse, docks, and lake points have historically provided some of the best fishing for largemouth bass.
When Eddie isn't professionally fishing, he's still fishing. Being on this lake is home and there's nothing better than reeling in that Mega bass and snapping a picture. lake fork is arguably the nation's best Bass fishing lake, holding record to over 3/4 of the largest Bass caught. Eddie's passion for fishing is noted in every guided fishing trip he runs. He caters every trip to the angler's skill level and age, ensuring all have a great time and make lasting memories.
