Default Bass Spawn at Lake Fork

Bass Spawn at Lake Fork

I've just received the following bass on Lake Fork report form Rob Woodruff. Rob is an Orvis endorced fly fishing guide on this famous East Texas Lake.

The spawn at Fork has started to get underway in the last few days. Male bass are beginning to make beds on the creek banks and coves with asoutheastern exposure and this activity will spread to the other banks as thewater continues to warm. We are starting to spot and hook some big female bass in the shallows. The big females are staging in the creeks, most of them are hanging out in 8 to 10 feet of water and then moving shallow in theafternoons as the water warms up, they are then dropping back deeper overnight as the water cools.

The full moon is next Tuesday and things will really get moving then if theweather stays warm. The high winds of the last few days have been making things tough on everybody on the lake.The best flies have been big streamers in shad, tan and white or olive.

Once the water temperature starts to stay around 60 degrees overnight, then the topwater bite will get going.

If you are going on your own, be careful. There are a lot of downed treesjust below the water surface. The high winds last night will have moved somefloating logs around. Slow down and try to go out of a creek the same way you came in.
