Fall fishing is in full swing at Lake Texoma and the fishing is great!

Lake levels continue to fall and should be back to normal in a few weeks. A couple of weeks ago we were 11 feet high but with the flood gate releases we are currently only 8 feet above normal and falling about 5 inches per day. It has been tough to find a boat ramp open but more ramps should be usable in the near future. I keep my boat in a slip at Lighthouse Marina so the flood has not impacted my ability to get on the water.

The main lake is pretty stained but the creek arms are clear. The striper don’t seem to mind a little stain but it’s best to look for them in the cleaner water. Watch for the birds. The last few weeks the fish under the working birds have been pretty small but as it gets colder bigger fish will show up in the schools under the birds.

Shallow water structure and rocky points 5-25 feet seem to be holding the larger fish but as the water cools everything should move deeper. Live shad is still best for putting limits in the boat but we are just a few cold fronts away from the time I switch to artificial baits. When it gets cold enough that you really don’t want to get your hands wet in a bait tank that is usually time to make the switch. That’s about it for now but my next report I’m hoping for normal lake levels, also look for more information on artificial lures as I make the switch.
