Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Texoma fishing guide Brian Prichard on Lake Texoma sends us this report:

Due to the cold weather that has been off and on the past couple of weeks, Lake Texoma’s water temperature remains at 58°. The fishing has picked up a bit but it remains hit and miss due to the sporadic weather patterns. We are still catching some big fish here and there but most remain up river spawning at this point. We are catching a lot of smaller fish but if you pick through these small ones then you can keep a limit of good fish. I expect the fishing to explode any time now when the fish get back from spawning as they seem to have been gone for several weeks now. All of this recent rain should help to speed up their return.

Fish have been holding close to the humps and ledges at around 25-35’. Using bait on anchor over structure of this depth seems to be working best. One day the fish will feed better in the morning and the next day the bite will be better in the evening. I’ve tried throwing lures a little with limited success, most all of my fish have been coming off of bait.

I currently have a evening trip for Sat. the 18th and a morning trip on the Sun. the 19th left for this weekend. My weekend trips are filling up fast in May so if you want a weekend you need to book now. There are only 2 weeks left with my grand opening special of $100/person which ends April 30th. Remember you do not have to go fishing before that time, as long as you get your trip booked before then you can reserve that price and go fishing whenever you want within this year. Good Luck and hope to see you soon. Book your trip online at www.stripersinc.com or call 903-815-1609.

Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Texoma fishing guide Brian Prichard on Lake Texoma sends us this report:

March has been hit and miss, which is normal for March fishing because the striper make their run to go spawn. However, as the water warms up, the fishing is getting better. Lake Texoma water temperature is currently 58° and the striper fishing is good and soon to get better. We have caught our limit the past two trips with some big fish of up to 8lbs mixed in.

It was very windy today but fortunately we were able to get out of the wind and catch a limit of nice fish. The fish have moved shallow and are running from 10-40′ deep. Drifting shallow flats 10-25′ deep with shad or throwing lures is working well. Today we did our best on live bait anchored in 35′ in the back of a cove. It is not yet the fast and furious action of May but it is a steady bite of good fish.

Now is the time to book your trip for the spring. When the fish get back from spawning in a week or two, the fishing is going to get awesome. Spring fishing is incredible fast pace action with never a dull moment and catching 100+ fish is normal for that time. The shad will start spawning on the rocky banks sometime in May and the first topwater bite of the year will kick off.

Take advantage of our grand opening special of $100/person which runs through April 30th. Trips may be scheduled for anytime throughout the year as long as your reservation is made on or before April 30th. Spring trips should be filling up fast so make your reservation as soon as possible to get your desired date. Book your trip online at http://www.stripersinc.com/ or call 903-815-1609.
