About Lake Fork

Lake Fork is located approximately five miles west of Quitman, Texas and within a 1 1/2 hour drive of Dallas, Tyler and Longview, Texas. When Lake Fork is at full level it covers 27,690 acres of thick vegetation and timber. 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. An intensive fish-management program along with "catch & release" are some of the reasons Lake Fork claims 37 of the top 50 big bass in the state of Texas. This includes the top 6 ranging from 17.08 lbs. to the current state record of 18.18 lbs.
