As of this post the water level on Lake Fork is 402.60 and the surface temperature is ranging from 85 to 88° -

I've been catching all my fish on main lake structures such as humps, points, roadbeds, pond dams and I am focusing on depths ranging 15 to 25 ' depending on the area.

As I have said many times in the past, the key to fishing these areas is timing. If the fish don’t bite within 15-20 minutes, it’s time to move on to another spot because they are biting somewhere. It's important to remember that you may try an area that doesn't produce in the early part of the day and come back a couple hours later to find it loaded up.

My two best baits have been a drop shot and a Carolina rig. Here's how I set these baits up.

Drop Shot: #1 rigging hook made by Owner - 1/4 oz weight with a 16 inch leader. I am throwing a Zoom finesse worm (Plum Crazy) (Tomato) on 20 lb braid with a 10 lb fluorocarbon leader.

Carolina Rig: 7.3 Falcon Expert Series Rod - 3/0 hook - 1 oz weight with a 4 - 5 foot leader. I am throwing a Zoom Fluke (Watermelon Magic) on 20 lb fluorocarbon.

Typical for summer fishing on Lake Fork, I am starting to catch a few schooling fish as well. The three baits you will want to have tied on are:

Spooks (bone), KT Spoons, and weightless flukes (disco violet). I prefer to use 15 lb Seaguar fluorocarbon for these baits.

I am sure this report can help you catch some fish during your next visit to Lake Fork. If you are looking to get out on a guided trip in July / August, I still have plenty of days open and would love the opportunity to put y'all on some fish. The best way to reach me is to give me a call.

Thanks, Eric Wright 972 757 7947

If you are looking to catch fish, learn, and spend a day with a guide that will work hard to find as many quality fish as possible, give Eric a call. There are quite a few excellent guides on Fork but Eric is right there with the best. No, he's not my cousin or brother-in-law.
