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 (Feb. 1)

GOOD. Water stained; 65 degrees; 0.81 feet below pool. Bird action has picked up leading the way to striped bass. Big fish are biting in 40-60 feet of water deadsticking with a splash motor or thumper. Some fish are still on structures, but the best bite has come in that deeper water. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass have been great on flukes drifting in 50-60 feet of water. Fish have been suspended around 40 feet down, so keep the lure right above the fish. Darker colors on windy and cloudy days are working best. Catfish have been slow on cut shad and large baits drifting in 10-20 feet of water near the mouth of the rivers. Crappie have been slow on jigs in the little mineral arm in brush piles 20-22 feet of water. Tipping the jig with a dead minnow has been working but a lot of smaller fish. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
