Taking the family to Lake Fork next week for a few days and bringing the boat. We have a rental house in the Dale Creek area. This is my first time on Lake Fork. I know what your gonna say "night fishing" I won't be venturing out to far at night not knowing the lake. Would you have any advice for the Dale Creek area. Any grass, structure and deep water to fish in that area or near by. How accurate are the buoys right now in the boat lanes.

Thanks everyone.

Don't run dale, don't even follow the boats running in there. Unless somebody personally leads u in and out of there. My advice to a first timer would be to travel to one of the ramps with a bridge or marked lane near it. Both mustangs and Williams have good ramp with marker buoys near by. Lake is full marked lanes are good to go

I would not run Dale Creek unless you are totally familiar with it. Boat lanes are accurate.

Dale is a tricky run for non locals and even some locals who don't venture into Dale much. There's some good deep water spots in the creek but I prefer to be more main lake this time of year. There's a few great spots close to dale on the main lake

Good fishing around the island in Dale and the pond at the mouth of Dale! Main lake points on that side of the lake are producing some fish right now. Big worms, flutter spoons, and drop shots are what we are using as well as topwaters when you find schooling fish. Hope this helps and be safe running that area you will be staying.

Thanks for the great advice everyone. I will stick to main lake areas. Be safe and stay cool everyone. Looks like the next week will be a hot one at Fork.
