Lake elevation is 616.51 and water temp at the dam is 58 degrees. Fishing this time of year is up and down much like the weather but it's like anything else in life you have to take a risk for the big rewards.


May and June are usually a sure thing but if you are looking for the biggest striper of the year late February-mid April is usually your best shot at a trophy size pre-spawn striper. Fishing has been very good on Texoma the past few weeks for big fish and numbers have also increased over the last few days. This time of year fish can be any depth and anywhere on the lake so you just have to put in your time and take a chance.


I prefer 5' swim baits in glow and chartreuse color this time of year but live bait can also be effective so for your best chance at a Texoma trophy striper book your trip now with your favorite Lake Texoma Striper guide and if you don't have a favorite do your homework before you choose one.


Take a chance and you just might be rewarded with a fish like this 20.5 lb that we caught April 2nd.


Good Luck !!!
Capt. Steve Barnes
