Lake Norfork - Freshwater Fishing Report
Guide Steve Olomon said It seems Old Man Winter just doesn't want to leave. The surface water temp is in the mid 40s and the lake level is 551.6. There are baitfish dying all over the lake. This hasn't happened for a few years because the last few winters have been mild. Spring fishing will be better because of all the dying baitfish. The jerk bait bite for bass will be good. There are some bass hitting them along with crankbaits along the shore in 5-10 feet of water. For deeper fish, drop a jigging spoon or fish a jig very slowly.
