Lake Texoma Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 5)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 85-88 degrees; 0.85 high. Striped bass and white bass are good on live bait and topwater baits when fish are near the surface. Diving birds are marking feeding schools on the surface throughout the lake. Use sonar to mark schools along the river channel and flats. Largemouth bass are good fishing skirted jigs, TX rigged plastic creatures, chatter baits, and crankbaits in 14-24’. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs by boathouses, marinas and brush piles in 15-25’. Catfish are good on cut bait, prepared bait, and live bait.
