About Lake Fork

Unlike many of the reservoirs here in Texas, Lake Fork was originally slated to be a municipal water supply funded. However, the Sabine River Authority (SRA) and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) got involved with the vision of creating a recreational fishery to help drive the tourism economy.

As part of SRA and TPWD's plan, vast areas of hardwood and pine forests were left standing, with only selective cutting for navigation. The rest of the timber was left for fish habitat. SRA and TPWD also convinced local ranchers to let them use farm ponds created to water livestock as nurseries for growing the first generation of largemouth bass. Since then, the TPWD continues to stock Lake Fork regularly and implements special regulations to protect the lake's notorious broodstock. 

Fishing Lake Fork

Lake Fork has an excellent reputation for big bass and cats. The current record for largemouth on Lake Fork is BIG, weighing in at 18.18 pounds pounds, 25.50 inches. That fish was caught by Barry St. Clair in January, 1992. Like most fisheries in Texas, you're chances are better when the temps are more moderate. If you just can't resist fishing in the dead of summer, night fishing Fork can be pretty productive. 

The record Blue Catfish stands at 71.5 pounds, 52.50 inches caught in 1995 by Tony Shamburger. And the Flathead record is a whopping 80 pounds, 49 inches caught by Sam Cotton in 2015. 

Lake Fork Fishing Regulations

There are special regulations for fishing bass and several other species on Lake Fork. Visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website for information about Fork's fishing records, stocking history and the latest survey report.
