Me and the wife will be fishing lake fork Thursday and Friday of this week. Thursday looks like a perfect day with little or no wind but Friday shows 18moh south winds. We plan on putting in Thursday at the 154 ramp and fish around little caney or up towards Glade area. My concern is where should we put in at and where to fish at to stay some what protected from the strong south wind on Friday. Any help or tips would be greatful and appreciated. Thanks

Edit: Should have stated we will be bass fishing.

Put in at Pope's or Fisherman's One Stop and Fish the creeks/coves around there.
Put in up at Coffee Creek.
Put in and fish around Axton's or Rainswood.

Fisherman's One stop is not on the water? It's on 515 between the West and East arms.

Maybe it's Fisherman's Cove - The Marina in Williams...

18 means 25 mph on the water. Lol.

Iโ€™d put in at Hideway Harbor and fish Little Caney. Donโ€™t have to run much or far and lots of good water in there right now.

Big and Little Mustang and Williams are good protected creeks from a strong south wind. Mustang Resort is a good middle ground for those 3 creeks. I think they will charge $3 to launch your boat.

Thursday looks nice, and it looks like the lake will have a little bit of new water. Have fun!

Mustang has new owners and it is $5 now. Just FYI. Good launch and good middle ground as stated

Edit: Should have stated we will be bass fishing.




During my experience as a Lake Fork local angler as well as a bass fishing guide since 2008 I have seen many reoccurring fishing patterns there. One of these is that Lake Fork generally fishes quite well with winds from the South, Southwest, or West. You should have a good couple days of fishing as there are currently many ways to catch bass this time of year. During a very calm day in late April I recommend starting off your mornings throwing topwater baits such as a Zara Spook, or a Pop-r style bait in main lake pockets on the southern half the lake. Around areas that have lots of floating shallow water grass I recommend using a hollow belly frog. If the wind conditions continue to remain very calm by 10 a.m. and the topwater bite slows I recommend looking for fish on beds in the same areas. While doing so you may come across some bass that are around shallow aquatic growth and guarding fry. Regardless if the fish is on a bed or seems to be guarding fry I would remember their exact location, quietly pass by them and at least one or two minutes later with your boat now distanced from that fish cast a weightless 4" Senko. If you are targeting a fish that was obviously locked onto a bed I recommend making as many casts as needed in order to make sure your lure lands precisely on the area where you spotted that bedded bed, normally after making a very accurate cast directly onto a largemouths bed within less than a minute that bass should bite your soft plastic.

During your second day of fishing I recommend again starting off early in the morning with topwater baits and at around 10 a.m. begin to use the wind to your advantage. I would either be idling over deeper structures offshore such as submerged road beds, points, or humps on the northern 1/2 of the lake looking for schools of largemouth that have already made their way offshore in large groups which can generally be caught quite well using deep diving crankbaits or Carolina rigs. If you prefer to fish shallow water or cannot locate schools of fish offshore on the northern end of the lake I recommend spending the rest of your day on the southern half of the lake throwing top water baits, shad colored hollow belly swimbait, or spinnerbaits. Use these lures on windy banks and the front half of major creeks or and small pockets just off of the main lake for the best results. I hope this helps, good luck fishing!
