Lake Texoma Fireworks 2023

Indpendence Day is one of the few things that can bring Texas and Oklahoma together. Whether you're tying up at the islands, camping, or visiting the lake for the afternoon, this holiday week is quite an experience at the lake. Get out in Texomaland for one (or more!) of these awesome 4th of July events. 

Highport Marina Freedom Fireworks – Saturday, July 1, 2023

This is typically the crowd favorite, highly visible from some of the most popular areas of the lake. The marina will be packed out, so try and view from around the area, or get on the water if you can. From boats, you can see this show from anywhere in that part of the lake, including the islands – but they'll be crowded!

Firework Show at Cove Point – Sunday, July 2, 2023

There will be fun for the DIY fireworks show with a designated area, followed by an official fireworks show on Sunday. 

Roosevelt Bridge Fireworks Show – Monday, July 3, 2023

One of the best 4th of July experiences on Lake Texoma is the fireworks show launched off the west end of the Roosevelt Bridge on US 70 over the north end of the lake. Watch from the water or Lake Texoma State Park.

Events on Tuesday, July 4, 2023

Here are some local town events around the lake, but not on the water that are happening on the day of:

  • Durant July 4th Fireworks Show

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 10)

GOOD. Water stained; 75 degrees; 1.96 feet above pool. Striped bass fishing is great using live bait, slabs or topwaters on the right day. The weather should fire them up this week, watch for birds bouncing around the banks and hovering over schooling fish in deep water along river channels and main lake ledges. Bass fishing is slow using top waters early along the bluffs and using electronics to fish brush piles in coves 10-20 feet of water. Slow and shrink your approach to match the hatch and the heat. Crappie fishing is good jigging brush piles using electronics in the little mineral arm of the lake and near docks. 12-15 feet of water finding structure and roaming fish on chartreuse and black jigs. Catfishing is good seeing channels coming off baited holes and punch bait in 15-25 feet of water. Blue catfish are roaming the deep water in 40-50 feet of water eating cut shad. Fish the rocks and deep flats. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Stripers are excellent on topwaters, and the slab bite has really kicked off landing the larger fish. Live bait bite has slowed. Water clarity has improved and the recent flooding has subsided so the summer pattern has resumed. Look for white egrets feeding on fish midlake to direct the way to fish. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
