Striped bass fishing is good using topwaters early in the morning along shallow flats on the west end of the lake. Swimbaits can catch fish in 10-15 feet of water on humps near creeks. Live bait fishing is still producing numbers in 35-40 feet of water in creek channels. Crappie fishing is slow on brush in the little mineral arm using electronics to find active fish using jigs with a slow presentation. Bass fishing is slow on topwaters early in the morning off the boulders, or with live shad along the island bluffs in 5-10 feet of water. Seeing a lot of short smallmouth and skinny largemouth. Catfishing is good on shad or prepared baits in 35-45 feet of water. Seeing a lot of keeper fish with the occasional bigger fish. Large blues will be staging along flats near creeks and the river mouths.

Help Protect Lake Texoma from Invasive Species

Bighead and silver carp were first brought to the U.S. in 1973 and have since overtaken many Mississippi River drainage waterways. Anglers can help protect Lake Texoma waters from invasive species by not releasing carp back into the water and reporting bighead and silver carp catches to the Oklahoma Wildlife Department or the Texas Wildlife Department.
