Striper Fishing On Lake Texoma Thursday, August 23, 2001. Lake level: 612.64. Water Temperature: 83 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 3:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. Weather: low 75 / high 93 / sunny with a light wind. Fishing time: 6:30 a.m. till 11:00 a.m. Captain Joe Grigar left the dock at 6:30 a.m. with the J. T. Chapman Co. party of four from Richmond, 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-eight feet of water near the pump station where they caught 43 fish and boxed 37. They pulled up anchor and moved to the east bank of the lake to catch under twenty inch fish. Rick, Diane and Nick Henry along with Clarence Chappell caught 27 more silversides before they could box their limit. Stripers are beginning to move off the east bank. Smaller fish can be caught on the Oklahoma flats between McLaughlin Creek and Washita Point. Stripers are being caught in four feet of water on topwater lures around the Islands and Mill Creek areas. 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, happy fishing and tight lines. Report submitted by: Tinkerâ€™s Striper Guide Service, http://www.tinker.net To see pictures go to: http://www.tinker.net/fishpics14.html Bass are fair on Black & Blue jigs or white flipping tubes around floating structure over deeper water. Worms in brush 5-15 feet work well 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.
