Fishing Report Lake Texoma. Sunday, June 3, 2001. Lake level: 619.07. Water Temperature: 71 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: N/A. Floodgates: Closed. Weather: low 66 / high 88 / partly cloudy. Fishing time: Sunday, 5:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. At 6:00 A.M. the lake is just over two feet high. The floodgates were open all week. Friday and Saturday fishing was slow to poor. By Sunday the stripers had adjusted to the changing water flow and dropping lake level. Fishing improved all over the lake Sunday. Our boats brought in 160 Silversides with the largest weighing in at 18.3 pounds. Shad are practically impossible to catch on Texoma. Shiners have been working great. We were anchored using shiners fishing 55 feet deep in 73 feet of water. The key to catching the larger stripers was to watch the sonar and measure your bait down to the exact depth the sonar showed the big hooks suspended at. Again, as last week, if you start at Washita Point and follow the river channel and the edges of it all the way to the dam you will find the large schools of stripers. The next few weeks will be great for catching the hard fighting silversides. Report submitted by: Tinker’s Striper Guide Service, To see pictures of last weeks catch go to: Lake is 2 foot high, clear mostly, temperature 73 degrees and surface running 75-78 degrees, Bass are fair to good on top waters early, flukes, jigs and spinner baits later. Fish are scattered. Some in new water, others in shallow brush piles and on sand drops. Fish are starting to relate to breakwaters and boathouses. Smallmouth are taking tubes and crank baits on rocks and points. Report submitted by professional guide J. B. Webb. Mary Chapman with guide Doug Smith (06/03/2001)
