Striper Fishing On Lake Texoma Tuesday, August 21, 2001. Lake level: 612.78. Water Temperature: 83 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 3:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. Weather: low 72 / high 98 / sunny with a light wind. Fishing time: 7:30 a.m. till 9:30 a.m. The late start we got this morning did not affect the trip. Captain Joe Grigar left the dock at 7:30 a.m. with the Golf Turfs of DFW party of four from Richardson, Texas. By 9:30 they had caught over 50 silversides and three catfish, releasing several fish over twenty inches long. Joe had the group anchored in forty-six feet of water on the east bank of the lake using live shad. The group was happy to catch their limit and return to the dock before it got hot. Stripers are still feeding from the Frisco railroad bridge to the dam on the edges of the old river channel. Stripers are being caught in four feet of water on topwater lures along the rocks between TI Point and Eisenhower, along the dam, around the islands and from McLaughlin Creek to Washita Point just before daylight. You have about an hour of good lure fishing before the sun runs the fish to deeper water. Warning!!! Be careful!!! The lake is still very low and still dropping. Many places you are used to boating are very shallow. Always practice safe boating and respect the other fishermen. Report submitted by: Tinker’s Striper Guide Service, To see pictures go to: Bass are fair on Black & Blue jigs or white flipping tubes around floating structure over deeper water. Worms in brush 5-15 fee work good later. Some Buzz bait and POP R action on windy rock points early. Traps or shad crankbaits are an option on windy points. Crappie picking up in deep brush on minnows. Catfish still good on prepared bait or shad. Report submitted by professional guide J. B. Webb
