Norfork Lake Fishing Report 4-16-24

I made it out on Norfork Lake this morning. I was having a restless night sleeping so I got up and headed out very early this morning. I fished two different areas in the dark casting out 3.5-inch swimbaits, one in white and another in sexy shad color pattern. At the first area I landed […]
