When has that ever been said before?? roflmao
Seriously, Athens is being beat to death right now.. so I think Iíll hit fork tomorrow. If a man wanted to bed fish and was unfamiliar with the lake, where should I launch and where are the sight fishing spots? Not trying to win a tournament, just want to hammer me some fish. Pm me if possible, that way your suggestions should be less crowded. Thanks in Advance.

You will most likely be disappointed if you are trying to escape crowds on Fork in March on a Friday.

There aren't sight fishing "spots" either. Try up north in Little Caney though.

Hard to see em in that dirty water on Fork right now... not saying its not possible, but the lake is off color all the way to the dam. My favorite sight fishing creek had about 3" of visibility at best last weekend.

Iíve been there yesterday and today and the parking lot and grass were full and people were parking in the overflow parking lot. Have to get in line to beat a bank.

During the week?!?!?!? WOW!! What a beating. No wonder that lake is a shell of itself 2 years ago. Sad

I canít imagine what Athens will be like this weekend. I jumped the barrier deal today just trying to find some fresh water. But the visibility sucked under the bridge

10-4 on this and been that way for awhile. If you're wanting to sight fish go to PK.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

If PK is possum kingdom, that appears to be about 4 hours from Athens. Any closer suggestions?

Clear water is hard to come by after all the rains we've had. I was at PK last Thursday and we caught'em pretty good in 2-3 fow. Couldn't actually see'em with 15-25 mph winds but they were there. Winnsboro might be clear enough on the south end but I wouldn't guarantee it. Hawkins is usually fairly clear but if you go there watch out for stumps with rebar sticking out of them. I'm sure fish will be on beds at Fork but I'd bet my new putter you won't be sight fishing. One thing about PK, there are no crowds during the week and that makes it worth the drive.

I really appreciate the help. Thank you.. most people wonít take the time to provide feedback like this on here anymore.
