Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Saturday, December 1, 2001. Lake level: 617.34. Water Temperature: 58 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 6:00 p.m. till 9 p.m. / one generator Weather: low 45 / high 70 / south wind. Fishing time: 6:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. Temperatures were the highest on record for a November. This has kept the water warm. Stripers are feeding all over the lake. December will be an excellent time to try your luck lure fishing for a large striper. Sassy shad are working well west of the islands east to TI Point. From Platter Flats north to Newberry Creek live shad are catching limits of Silversides. We had four days off the lake this last week because of the cold front and icy precipitation. Saturday, Captain Joe Grigar took the Forest Sims group of three for a lure fishing adventure west of the Islands. They returned to the dock with a nice catch of stripers with a couple over five pounds. Captain Mike Blakely with the Thibodeaux brothers fished Newberry Creek with live shad and came in with a limit of silversides. Black bass continue to be slow to fair to 4 lbs. Buzz baits, spinners, worms and jigs are all catching fish in 2-15 feet of water. Rouges are worth trying around floating structure.
