I'm planning on fishing Clear Fork this weekend while visiting my parents. How are the crappie and bass hitting? I've fished this lake from shore before for crappie, but this will be the first time in my kayak. Any tips are appreciated.

my father in law and i fished clearfork on friday and didnt do to bad (kept 16 and put 7 back in to grow a little more). we went back on monday and pretty much got skunked. it will depend on the weather the night before, if its warm you should be ok, but if its cooler you might have to work a little harder.

when we caught them on friday they seemed to be on the southern side in the shallow coves, about 4 to 4 1/2 feet deep.

good luck, let me know how it goes, i might even be there myself.

I Have Not Fished Clearfork In A Few Years But Grew UP By It And Springtime Always Meant Up The River By Boyscout Camp. West End Of Lake.

It looks like a cold front is moving in the night before. I'll let you know how I do.

thought you might like to know...
my father in law was out again today and caught 19 big crappie and a few perch in the cove that fishslim was refering to.
i couldnt go (had to work) but we will be there this saturday. look for the old blue pontoon with the tarps rigged up on the sides, and 2 guys in really comfy chairs. that would be us.

It ended up being a great morning for me. As soon as I put in, I got two nice white bass. I caught a couple small largemouth, and then made my way to the picnic areas where I've caught them from shore. I got far enough away from the shore guys and caught maybe 20 crappie in there, but all dinks. I then paddled over to the north shore and found a sunken tree. Ah, the beauty of being in a kayak. I put myself in the tree and it was on. I probably caught 30 in the next two hours, with many being in the 12-14 inch range. It was really cool because I could look right down and see them slam my tube. I felt like I had an aqua view! :)

Buckeye, if he was in an orange kayak nestled in a tree that was definitely me. There were a lot of nice slabs in there.
