It’s hard to believe we are already well into March here on Lake Fork! It sure hasn’t felt much like March, that’s for sure. We fished one of the coldest days I have ever fished this past week, with the high temperature barely climbing out of the 20’s! The water temperature on Lake Fork took a big hit, and was pushed back into the mid 40’s. Things are gradually warming back up now, and I saw some water in the upper 50’s yesterday afternoon. Shallow, muddy water will warm quickly on a sunny afternoon. However, the main lake temperature is still in the low 50’s at the time of this report.
The water level is about 6″ below pool currently. I believe the Sabine River Authority is trying to keep the lake slightly low in order to stay ahead of flood risks considering all the rain we’ve had so far this year.
In spite of all the temperature and water level fluctuations, we have managed to catch some nice fish the past couple of weeks. Last week a customer joined the double digit club with a 10.7 pound Lake Fork trophy! I was happy for him and thankful for the catch. I’m looking forward to seeing more fish like that in my boat this year!
On a side note, I’m loving my new boat! The ride is better than ever, and I can say she’s officially broken in now that she’s seen her first 10 pound bass of the season.
Here are some pictures from recent trips.
