Gary Johnson's Fishing Report- April 29
The water temperature on
Lake Fork is in the high 60's to low 70's and the lake is two inches low.
There is flooded grass all over the lake and the lake is in excellent
condition. The backs of the creeks are a little stained but most of the
lake is more clear than expected with all the recent rains we have
received. The flooded grass is where all the action has been for us. We
have been using frogs, senkos, flukes and buzz baits to catch most of our
fish. Most of our entire day is spent fishing shallow in the new grass.
There should be one more big wave of fish coming in to spawn within the
next few days as the full moon is upcoming. It has been a long time since
we have been able to fish flooded grass like this on Fork and we are
really enjoying it. The shad should begin spawning in the next few weeks
making the topwater bite even more exciting in the very early morning
hours. The fish that have already spawned are on secondary points and main
lake points. Best baits for these fish have been Carolina rigged baby
brush hogs in any of the watermelon colors. This is a great time to be on
Lake Fork to catch a fish of your lifetime. I still have some good days
left in May and some really good days left in June so call early for best
available dates. I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake
Fork. If you are looking for a professional guide trip and a great day on
the water please give me a call at 214-205-0540.
Until next week, good luck and
