As we endure the hottest part of the summer here on Lake Fork, catching fish can be a challenge but there are always some bass biting somewhere. With daytime highs between 100 and 110 degrees, I have been focusing on fishing at night or during the morning hours. My customers and I have managed some good sized fish lately and we have had some good trips for numbers as well.
With the strong presence of the thermocline set in near the 20ft depth, fishing right above that zone has been key when fishing deep. There are also some fish fairly shallow. Some other nearby lakes have also been productive recently. I always try to give my customers the best opportunity to have a good trip, and once in a while that means fishing another lake.
Here are some pictures of our recent catches. A few of these were taken while I was alone scouting for upcoming guide trips.
