Lake Fork Fishing Report
Water level is -5.70 and surface temps or 83 to 85 degrees The bass fishing has been pretty good. We'er catching fish in different depths right now. Early in the morning there is a top water bite especially if there is cloud cover but it's not lasting long. Offshore fishing will pick up this month!

Spring Fishing On Lake Fork in Alba, Tx
Surface temps are starting about 57 and we're seeing some 60 degree water later in the afternoon. Lake level is -6.38. It hasn't been one the better March months I've seen here so far. We've had cold front after cold front come in here, and most of them fronts have had horrific north winds. But now midway through the month we are seeing more bucks and a few females pulling up very shallow. With more consistent warmer nights and days I think the spawn will begin in the next few days. I think some of the early large females have started spawning in the larger trees a little bit deeper. we should see a large wave pull up shortly. April should be a great month fish spawning all over the lake. We're mostly fishing plastics in 2' to 5" of water in spawning areas. Tx. rig and wacky has been our go-to techniques. On the real windy days chatter baits and square bills have proven successful. I will give more details on colors in my next report as now they vary. I have some April dates available if your looking for a guide. The attached image is from a recent charter with some new Bass anglers- We had a great day on the water and caught this nice slugger! Tight lines and good fishing!

Welcome To Lake Fork
Lake level is - 6.16 low and surface temps are 48 to 51 degrees. I wasn’t on the water too much in January because it's just a slow month here. It’s also a transition month for the bass. They are now moving back into the creeks to start their pre-spawn ritual. February is a good Winter month to catch a big one here. We don't a lot of numbers of bass but they are good quality because they are full of eggs and heaviest. With cold water temps right now, a jig fishing on the edges of creek channels flipped beside the stumps is hard to beat! I like a 3/8 and 1/2 oz. in black and blue and green pumpkin color. A Strike King Rage Craw in black and blue is a great trail for the jig. I typically fish the creek channels in 6' to 12' of water this month. I also like throwing a suspended jerk bait in this cold water. The Mega Bass Vision 110 is my favorite. The Elegy color works well here. Also in the afternoons when the water warms some I like throwing this bait shallower 2 'to 5' on the flats outside the creeks and also in the ditches and drains. I don't like throwing soft plastics until surface temps hit 55 to 57 degrees. Its all about the night temps determining the surface temps in the daytime on the shorter winter daylight hours. I will give another detailed report as we get into March. I have good days available so book your March and April trips soon! With the low water level it's going to be a great pre-spawn and spawn here. I would love to earn your business!
