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 (Oct. 20)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 70 degrees; 2.08 feet low. Seagulls have migrated to the area pointing out the schooling fish. Striped bass are producing bigger fish on topwaters and in 20-60 feet over wind blown points. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs near boathouses, timber near a channel, and brush piles. Catfish are good on earthworms, chicken liver, and live bait.
