Texoma Striper Report – April 20, 2018 by Capt Steve – txfishingguide.com

Fishing has been pretty tough with the wind and below average temps but it can’t stay windy and cold forever so we have some great fishing to look forward to.

I believe a good number of our larger fish have moved from the lake up into the Red and Washita rivers to spawn, they usually show up back in the lake about the second week of May.

Fishing is really hit and miss with the weather right now and many days have just been unfishable because of the extremely high winds. Its gonna be great fishing when we get a more stable weather pattern so we just have to be patient. Fish are anywhere from 10-60 foot of water but as a general rule the shallower you can find them the easier they are to catch and keep your eyes open for working birds. Live bait and artificial bait are both effective right now and topwater bite might happen in a couple more weeks. Its gonna be a season for the record books

Lake Texoma Striper Report – April 3, 2018

by Lake Texoma Striper Guide – Capt. Steve Barnes

Lake elevation is 616.51 and water temp at the dam is 58 degrees. Fishing this time of year is up and down much like the weather but it’s like anything else in life you have to take a risk for the big rewards.

May and June are usually a sure thing but if you are looking for the biggest striper of the year late February-mid April is usually your best shot at a trophy size pre-spawn striper. Fishing has been very good on Texoma the past few weeks for big fish and numbers have also increased over the last few days. This time of year fish can be any depth and anywhere on the lake so you just have to put in your time and take a chance.

I prefer 5′ swim baits in glow and chartreuse color this time of year but live bait can also be effective so for your best chance at a Texoma trophy striper book your trip now with your favorite Lake Texoma Striper guide and if you don’t have a favorite do your homework before you choose one.

Take a chance and you just might be rewarded with a fish like this 20.5 lb that we caught April 2nd.

Good Luck !!!
