Things have sure changed a lot here on Lake Fork over the past few weeks! If you’ve been watching the news, you know east Texas has gotten plenty of rain over the past two weeks. We haven’t had any issues here around the lake though. We received just enough rain to bring the level up nearly to full pool. Right now we are sitting at a few inches below full.
We got a big time cool down with the rain, breaking low temperature records for this time of year in our area as well. So that brought the water temperature down significantly. Mid 60’s around most of the lake.
There are plenty of fish shallow, for those who like that style of fishing. Topwater early, then light Texas rigs, small swimbaits, and jigs are working for the shallow fishermen I know. The drop shot will continue to produce as well.
There are some fish in deeper water as well. Look for fish out at the ends of points, on main lake humps, and pond dams. Road beds always get good in the fall as well. More finesse type presentations will do best this time of year. When the water really cools down near the end of the month, the bigger fish will start to show up with more regularity.
If I can be of any assistance on your upcoming trip, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Good luck out there. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” I John 4:9
