Lake Fork Guide Services

Owned and Operated By Dennis Sheley





  Water level up date as of 5-15-17 is at 403.17 or 0.17 high. We have had a lot of rain this month which has cause the lake level to fluctuate. The wind has been out of the south at 10 to 20 for the last two weeks so look for the north end of the lake to have color. However it is clearing up and looks to be in good shape. There are good schools of deep fish that can be caught on Drop shot, Carolina Rigs, Jigs, Zoom Magnum flukes (weightless), Spoons and Swim baits and A- Rigs.  (15 to 25 ft).  The shallow bite is getting hot.  Texas rigged Sinkos, 8 in lizards wieghtless flukes Jerk baits and top water baits (Frogs) are all working. Look for fish in 3 to 8 ft of water around the willows and submerged grass.  I like to throw a Zoom 8 in Green pumpkin Lizard and dip the tail this time of the year.  You need to fish it very slow on a texas rig.  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 put out 25 new brush piles and they are on them.  I have dates available in May if your thinking about a trip.  Bobby Garland jig bodies and a 1/16 to 1/8th jig head.  A half day for two people will get your limit.


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
