Default Lake Fork Report

I fished Lake Fork on Saturday. The cold front last Wednesday has pushed most of the fish back off their beds again (second time in 2 weeks), but I managed to hook 6 bass, and got 3 to the boat. I had a very good fish up to the boat,(7-8 lbs) and she got off with a head shake. I probably didn't have the hook set good enough. All the hits came on a bream colored Zonker type fly with the barred rabbit strip in chartreuse, olive and black bars. Overall a very nice day with Rob Woodruff.

Thanks guys. Yes, Rob Woodruff is the consummate pro. His advice is great, and he doesn't laugh when I really mess up a cast. His biggest compliment to me was that when I made a mistake, I knew what I did wrong without having to be told, and could correct it myself, but then 5 minutes later I would make the same mistake again. LOL. Just need to practice more.

RTC,
Lake Fork is huge, and most of the land around it is private. It would be very difficult to fish without a boat. I would stick to smaller bodies of water, even if you have a float tube or pontoon, I think that is just too big of a piece of water. You will have better choices.
