TX Lake Fork
Marker Description: Big largemouths from creek channels and standing timber. Few largemouth bass anglers haven't heard of this famous lake. It was legendary in the 80s and 90s for both the size and numbers of fish it produced. Due to age and the devastation caused by the Largemouth Bass Virus in the late 90s, the lake is way past its prime. However, it has been steadily re-emerging as a bass fishing hot-spot, and a good number of Texas' 10+ pound largemouths are taken from this lake annually. There is very little to do here besides bass fish; there are few hotels or restaurants in the area, and standing timber, stumps, and emergent vegetation make operating recreational watercraft a hazard. There are dozens of good guides available, some of whom have fished the lake since it was first impounded. A number of classic bass fishing techniques will work here, including fishing creek channels with jigs and plastics, flipping to standing timber and stumps, and ripping lipless crankbaits through the grass. Aside from bass, the lake is also a popular destination for crappie and catfish anglers. The lake is about a 2-hour drive east from Dallas.
