Lake Texoma is in full summer fishing pattern and for me that means trolling. You can catch some striper early in the morning before sunrise running close to the bank throwing top water or swim baits but once the sun starts to come up look for them schooling in open water — they won’t stay up long so better get them while it’s hot because once they go down they get a little tougher to track and catch.
If trolling is not your thing you can still catch them on slabs and live bait out in the open water but, for me, trolling consistently puts bigger fish in the boat when the fish are schooled up and running fast. Boats really stack up on these fast moving schools of fish this time of year.
Trollers don’t like bait fishermen sitting in the way and bait fishermen don’t like trollers passing so close but that’s Lake Texoma in the summer time and there is no sense fussing about it. Good Luck and stay safe.

Lake Texoma Spring 2018 Update!
Well old man Winter is behind us and Spring is here! Winter was a good on Lake Texoma. Numerous good box fish (under 20 inches) and some really nice overs (fish over 20 inches) were caught. Many days we caught limits of fish and threw some back as well to grow up and fight another day.
The Lake Texoma is in good condition. The Striper population is good, the food source (threadfin and gizzard shad) is good as well. Some areas of the lake are muddy for the rains a month ago, and the lake is at Read more….

Lake elevation is 616.62 and water temp has warmed up to 57 degrees. With the water heating up the striper fishing just keeps getting better and should continue to improve as water temp rises more. Limits of box fish (striper under 20″) are being caught drifting live shad in the river channel and up on the flats.
Larger fish are in a pre-spawn pattern and staged up on shallow structure in 10-25 foot. Lots of big striper caught last week and the pattern should hold thru early April. Trolling and casting swimbaits and A-rigs in the usual colors,chartruse and glow.
Most of the action is midlake since upper ends of the lake are still pretty muddy. Flood gates are open releasing 6,0590 cubic feet a second but with the current lake level I look for gates to be closed at anytime and water should clear up on the upper ends but since it is spring time we could get more rain and more stained water.
2018 look so be the best fishing we have had since 2014 so get your Lake Texoma striper guide trip booked today.

Fishing on Texoma has slowed down this past week but looks like Spring is just about here and fishing will drastically improve in the coming days with the warmer temps. Water temp is 44 but with warmer weather and longer days we should heat up into the 50’s pretty soon. When this happens bait and fish will move up into shallower water on points, humps and flats.

It was a gorgeous day to be out on the water! We are still fishing sassy along the bottom over structure. Today we caught fish from 20 to 38 foot of water. There are tons of fish in the lake and we’ve had good steady fishing for several months now. Its going to be a great year.
Come make memories with us!
Another great day on Beautiful Lake Texoma. Lots of fish willing to bite today. Even caught a couple double digit fish. We release all big fish over 10lbs. CPR (catch, photograph, release). Even saw a pair of eagles today.

Barbara Pope caught this 24.7 pound striped bass from Lake Texoma last Thursday. Barbara was fishing with striper guide Chris Carey.
