The water level as of this date (9-10) is 402.88 or 0.22 low.  The water temps have started to drop in the 70s.  Its that time off the year again when the shad are going to the creeks.  However I have not found big consentrations of Bass with them yet.  It wont be long though. Work the ditchs and secondary points in the creeks and work to the back till you find them.  Crank baits work great for this.  You can cover alot of water in a hurry. Dont be afraid to throw a buzz bait or frog if there is grass there.  Weightless Flukes and Sinkos work great if you miss a fish on top.

Deep fish that can be caught on Drop shot, Carolina Rigs, football Jigs (tipped with a 10 berkley power worm), Zoom Magnum flukes (weightless), Spoons, Swim baits and A- Rigs.  (15 to 25 ft).  Dont forget my two favorite ways to fish this time of the year.  There are also some really good fish on brush piles now. Main lake humps, Road beds, and big cedar trees are holding big fish.


 Crappie up date. I have had a tuff time catching Crappie last month. Brush piles have dryed up some and most fish are moving to main lake points setting up for the fall bite.


Sand Bass are starting to show up also.  These fish sould also get schooled up on the road beds and main lake points by the end of this month.  If you wish to have a fish fry, this is an easy way to catch alot of fish in a short time. 


If you are planning a Corporate trip, now is the time to book.  It takes some time to get other guides and motel accommodations arranged.   We can handle groups up to 50 and more with proper notice.  We do have reference's available upon request.   What a better way to thank your customers or your employees for their business and help.  

Please feel free to call me for any additional info you may need at 1-903-570-6715.  These tips will also work on the Lakes in your areas.  Thanks for your interest in Lake Fork Guide Service
