Lake Fork Report 10-6-09

We had almost 4″ of rain over the past 2 days, yesterday they opened all 5 gates and dropped the lake the few inches it had risen. As of 3pm today one gate remained about half open-

Fishing has been very strange over the past week. Morning bite is very slow but late in the afternoon (4:30-dark) has been great. We had some customers that checked out from Arkansas that stumbled on a great evening bite about 3 days ago. They were bringing in some photos of good fish but wouldn’t say exactly what they were doing. Even with the gates open they caught 25 fish on Zara Spooks from 5 until dark, most fish in the 2-3lb class but they did manage a 9lber that was over the slot (weighed in here) as well as 2 fish in the 7lb class yesterday that were in the slot.

They were NOT catching fish on the infamous Yellow Magic, pop-r, devils horse or tiny torpedo…the fish wanted a big clear spook.
