Lake Fork

The lake was opened for fishing in the fall of 1980 and since then has gained a reputation as the number one trophy bass lake in Texas. Lake Fork at full level covers 27,690 acres of thick vegetation and timber. An intensive fish-management program along with "catch & release" are some of the reasons Lake Fork masters the list of the top 50 big bass in the state of Texas. Lake Fork is located approximately five miles west of Quitman, Texas and about a 1 1/2 hour drive of Dallas, Tyler and Longview, Texas.
