Lake Fork Fishing Report - 02/19/2022

 Lake Fork is about 6 1/2 feet low with water temperatures ranging from the low 50’s to mid 50’s on sunny afternoons. The main structure on Fork right now is timber and this is where many of the fish are beginning to stage for the spawn. Best targets are the stumps in two to ten feet of water. The bigger stumps with limbs seem to be the best. The best baits seem to be jigs or Texas rigged creature baits fished as close as possible to the stumps. As the day progresses and the water warms up, shallow running crank baits like a 1.5 and suspending jerk baits begin to come into play. For those who are good with forward facing technology, the suspending jerk bait works great. There’s not a lot of bites out there, but most of the bites are pretty good fish so capitalizing on every bite is important. We are expecting a couple of warm days this week followed by a major cold front at the end of the week. I’m hoping that the fish that begin coming up in the next couple of days will stay in the area and stay committed after the front and these patterns hold up.
