Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Lake level: 617.44 / Water: 57 degrees / Clear. Generation: 6:00 p.m. till 9 p.m. / one generator. Weather: low 32 / high 51 / north wind. Fished: Sunday, December 10, 2001 / 7:00 a.m. till 1:30 p.m. Captain Mike Blakely took four brave fishermen out early striper fishing. Most of the fish caught were in the 19” to 24” range on live shad in the upper Washita arm of the lake. Mike reported he had to measure nearly every fish brought into the boat to comply with the 20” limit of two per fisherman 20’ or longer. Catching the shorter fish was a problem. Stripers are feeding all over the lake. They will continue to feed as long as the water temperature stays in the 50’s. December is a good month to try your skills 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. The Monday morning low on Texoma is 27 degrees. The forecast for this week is for the highs to be in the upper 50’s to lower 60’s. This is an excellent time of the year to start your fishing trip around 11:00 a.m. Bass are fair to good in shallow water on spinners, flukes and jigs. Try white or firetiger crankbaits on windy points. Catfish excellent on jug lines to 50 lbs. No reports on crappie. Report submitted by: Tinker’s Striper Guide Service, To see pictures go to:
