Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Monday, December 2, 2002

Water pool level: 617.51, normal annual pool level is 617 feet.

Water temperature: 56 degrees. Water clarity: clear.

Generating 5 pm till 8 pm.

Partly cloudy with a light north wind, low 44 degrees, high 65 degrees.

The forecast for the next two days is 100% chance of rain, cold mornings with afternoon temperatures rising to the higher 40s and lower 50s.

The best way to land a striper is fishing live shad 30 feet deep in 35 to 50 feet of water. Stripers are feeding all over the lake. They will continue to feed as long as the water temperature stays in the 50’s. December is a good month to try your skills lure fishing for a large striper. Sassy shad are working well west of the islands east to TI Point. This is a good time of the year to start your fishing trip around 11:00 a.m. or later.

Don’t miss out on this excellent winter fishing for the big catfish. Many people enjoy putting out jug lines with one to three hooks baited with cut shad or live perch, then striper fishing for an hour or so, returning to run their jug lines and land a big cat. On the colder days, put your baited jug lines out and return to the boat house for an hour or so to warm up and enjoy drinks, dominos, cards or just some good ole fishing stories. Run your lines, re-bait and start all over again. A fishing guide can be a big help with catching your bait and showing you where to place your lines. Bring plenty of clothing and wet weather gear. Remember, you can always take a layer off if you get too hot, but if you don’t have it you can’t put it on.

Black bass are fair to good in shallow water on spinner baits, Carolina rigs, and chrome with blue back Rat-L-Traps. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs over brush piles. Catfish excellent on jug lines to 50 lbs.

Located in the central flyway of the United States, the Red River Valley has acres of forage and flooded timber to enable mallard, pintail, widgeon, gadwall, teal and a variety of geese to use this area for a resting stop on their migration south. Duck season ends January 26, 2003.
