Fishing is heating up at Lake Texoma, Checkout our Facebook pages for pictures of the 92.7 pound blue catfish caught this weekend! Stripers are biting steadily on live shad and artificial lures using the “Dead Sticking Method”. With water temps warming the crappie are biting underneath boat slips on jigs tipped with crappie nibbles power bait on the hook. Jug lining is hot for blue catfish in the mouths of rivers and creeks as well as river channels in the main lake. When setting juglines look for depth transitions to place juglines along. Fresh bait is key to having success with juglines. Report submitted by Trey Hale, game warden stationed in Bryan County.

Lake Texoma fishing guide reports – most recent

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.

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!
