More Info




Fort Washita was constructed in the 1800s as an armed post of the United States. The undertaking of Fort Washita was to guard the Chickasaw & Choctaw people from the Plains Indians. Fort Washita functioned through 1865 and stands currently as a historic site and gallery where guests can study what life was like previously and through the Civil War.

Fort Washita gives guests the prospect to discover the restored buildings, see Civil War reforms, and experience an annual Fur Trade Era Rendezvous, which takes guests on an expedition of the historical past through informative stations, narrations and more.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 80 degrees; 1.70 feet below. Striped bass are good scattered from shallow flats to deeper water biting on slabs. Some topwater action early in the morning, and midday. Sand bass are mixed in with the stripers on shallow flats. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are great on live shad fishing main lake flats and secondary ledges in 30-40 feet of water. A lot of smaller fish with the occasional big fish, the size will improve as the weather cools off. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are slow with the amount of shad in the lake making it tough to fool them. Still off the banks in 8-15 feet of water fishing soft plastics late in the day and topwaters the first couple hours of the day. Key in on underwater points and brush piles using electronics. Blue and channel catfish are great on flats in 20-30 feet of water moving shallower as the water temperature cools off using cut shad and prepared baits. Trophy blue catfish season is just around the corner. Crappie are mostly undersized with better fish mixed in as you move around. Target roaming fish with electronics fishing the tops of brush piles in 10-15 feet of water. Minnows mainly and a jig if you get them biting well.
