As I write this report fishing has been a little tough the past couple of days. However, things are about to change with the warmer days and in a few days our nights will be a lot warmer. I have been catching fish in different parts of the lake and on different baits. The way things are going now the best thing to do is pick up a bait that you have the most confidence in a stick with it. For me my lure choice are spinnerbaits, rattlebaits, and chatterbaits. I have been trying to cover as much water as possible and catch the most active fish in the area.
There are other baits that will work well to if slower fishing is what you would rather do. As always a jig will catch its share of big fish on Fork in the spring as will a lizard and any senko type bait. Lizards and jigs will work better along shallow creek channels and little drops and the senko type baits will be better around shallow grass and flats. Suspending jerkbaits will also work well to this time of year. I prefer a chrome/blue on a clear day and a gold/black back on a dark day.
I still have a few days open in March which are the 7,11,22, and the 28. Please let me know if I can be of any help.
