Fishing Lake Texoma

Lake Texoma Catfish Guides

Free-flowing current in the Red River makes Texoma one of the few lakes in Texas with a self-sustaining population of striped bass, and one of only eight inland freshwater reservoirs worldwide where this species has spawned. A cousin of the white bass, striped bass were first stocked in Lake Texoma by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation in 1965. They began spawning in 1974.  Blue catfish are caught on cut live bait when these monsters migrate downstream or into the main pool area in winter and upstream in the spring.  Trophy Blue Catfish on Lake Texoma with a rod and reel is a life changer, come join us!

Fishing Lake Tawakoni

Lake Tawakoni Catfish Guide

Striped bass, hybrid striped bass and white bass are vital to the local economy, providing excellent fisheries especially in the lake’s open water areas. Striped and hybrid bass are stocked annually by TPWD to maintain the fisheries. Lake Tawakoni is one of the best Hybrid Striper impoundments in the USA!  Blue Catfishing is one of Lake Tawakoni’s sure bets. Anglers use a range of baits including cut bait, shrimp, liver, stink baits and earthworms. Techniques include drift fishing, bank fishing, and trotlining. Catches of trophy blue catfish, especially during winter months are fairly common.  Come join us today!

Blue catfish are primarily large-river fish, occurring in main channels, tributaries, and impoundments of major river systems. They tend to move upstream in the summer in search of cooler temperatures, and downstream in the winter in order to find warmer water.  Most blue catfish are not sexually mature until they reach about 24 inches in length. Like channel catfish, the blue catfish pursues a varied diet, but it tends to eat fish earlier in life. Although invertebrates still comprise the major portion of the diet, blue catfish as small as four inches in length have been known to consume fish. Individuals larger than eight inches eat fish and large invertebrates. Blue catfish commonly attain weights of 20 to 40 pounds, and may reach weights well in excess of 100 pounds. Lake Texoma and Lake Tawakoni have Trophy Blue Catfish! Follow Lake Texoma Catfish Guide on Facebook!

 There are land-locked populations that complete their entire life cycle in freshwater. These generally ascend tributaries of the lakes or reservoirs where they spend their lives. Spawning begins in the spring when water temperatures approach 60°F. Typically, one female is accompanied by several males during the spawning act. Running water is necessary to keep eggs in motion until hatching. In general, at least 50 miles of stream is required for successful hatches. Stripers may reach a size of 10 to 12 inches during the first year. Males are generally mature in two years, and females in three to four. Adults are primarily piscivorous, feeding predominantly on members of the herring family such as gizzard shad and threadfin shad. Alewife and glut herring are often found in their stomachs in the northern states. Lake Texoma doubles down! Texoma is stocked and Striper reproduce naturally!  Come catch Big Fish and Big Numbers on Lake Texoma with Daniel Armstrong!

White Bass

Lake Texoma White Bass Guide

White bass are active early spring spawners. Schools of males migrate upstream to spawning areas as much as a month before females. There is no nest preparation. Spawning occurs either near the surface, or in midwater. Running water with a gravel or rock substrate is preferred. Females rise to the surface and several males crowd around as the eggs and sperm are released. Large females sometimes release nearly a million small eggs during the spawning season. After release eggs sink to the bottom and become attached to rocks, hatching in 2-3 days. Fry grow rapidly, feeding on small invertebrates. White bass may grow eight or nine inches during the first year. Adults are usually found in schools. Feeding occurs near the surface where fish, crustaceans, and emerging insects are found in abundance. Gizzard and threadfin shad are the preferred food items.  Lake Texoma and Lake Tawakoni have plenty of white bass and we love to catch them!  Join Lake Texoma Catfish Guide and fill up your cooler for that fish fry!
