Lake Fork Report 3-30-2018
As of this post the water level on Lake Fork is 402.96 and the water temperature where I am fishing is currently 64 degrees. The mornings here on Lake Fork can still be a little cool, so if you are coming out make sure to check the weather.
Recently the most common question I'm asked is about water clarity. Lake Fork has received a lot of water this season and is currently dingy. This will change. The cleanest water I am finding is around mid-lake and we are ABSOLUTELY sight fishing.
This time of year I primarily use three baits.
When I am fishing secondary points, I will either use a drop shot or split shot rig. I set up my drop shot with a #1 rigging hook and a 1/4 oz weight (tomato). For the split shot rig I like to use a Fluke with a #3 rigging hook and 1/4 oz weight (Mardi Gras).
When I'm sight fishing, I throw a Texas rigged Paca Craw with a #3 rigging hook and a 5/16 Tungsten weight (Blk/Blu or Okeechobee Craw).
Hope the information can help those of you coming to Lake Fork catch a few fish - Y'all be safe out there
Thanks, Eric Wright
