We had a great summer on Texoma this year but summer keeps dragging on. I’m ready for some fall weather and if the forecast is correct we should finally see some cooler weather next week.

Fishing is still very good despite the heat but the cooler weather will improve the fishing and make it even better. I have been trolling A-rigs but have heard of fish being caught on slabs, swim baits, top waters, and live shad. Fish have been schooling up on the surface in just about every depth of water but primarily on the flats in 20-40 foot. The cold fronts will bring gulls from up north so schooling fish will be easier to locate.

Fishing should be excellent and very consistent from now until it gets very cold in January or February. We might hit a little bump in the road when the lake turns over in a few weeks but it will be short lived. Bigger fish will get more active with the cooler weather.

Boat traffic has made the weekend fishing tougher this summer but should ease up some with hunting season getting started. Fall is a great time to fish Lake Texoma so call or text me for available dates.
