Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Monday and Tuesday, October 1 & 2, 2001. Lake level: 615.99. Water Temperature: 76 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 3:00pm to 10pm. Weather: low 53 / high 77 / cloudy / light wind. Fishing time: 7:00 a.m. till 11:30 a.m. The lake has been rising slowly for the last two months. The water temperature has also been cooling down slowly. With no drastic changes, the fish have been feeding regularly. Captain Joe Grigar left the dock just before seven both mornings with Randy and Larry Meggison, Todd Bailey and Elmer Eckhoff from Topeka, Kansas. Monday morning they went west to The Cross. By 8:30 they had boated thirty-eight stripers. Joe pulled anchor and headed east to find some larger silversides. Stopping at several spots from Two Rivers to north of the Frisco Bridge the group caught 65 stripers and headed to the dock with 50 fish in the box. This search proved to be valuable for the following mornings fishing. With what they had learned on Monday, Joe headed north, fishing both sides of the Washita River. After landing 113 stripers using live shad in 5 feet to 30 feet of water they headed in with 50 nice silversides in the box. You can see in the pictures, Tuesday’s fish were larger than Monday’s. The stripers aren’t as large as they usually are at this time of year, but are getting healthier each week. A lot of the fish are too small to keep and have to be returned to the lake.
