Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Sunday, October 7, 2001. Lake level: 615.96. Water Temperature: 75 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 3:00pm to 10pm. Weather: low 57 / high 74 / light wind / 0 rain in October. Fishing time: 7:00 a.m. till 11:30 a.m. Captains Joe Grigar, Mike Blakely and Doug Smith left the dock around seven A.M. with the Dickey group from Oklahoma City. Drifting live shad in the Washita River arm and anchoring on ledges they caught over 150 stripers before returning to the dock. With the help of the feeding gulls, finding the fish was relatively easy. The stripers aren’t as large as they usually are at this time of year, but are getting healthier each week. Fishing just gets better and better each day. The silversides will be feeding in large schools until the water gets to cold in December. Get out your cold and wet weather gear for the early bite in the morning. After the sun comes out, fall days are perfect to enjoy the excitement of catching the hard fighting stripers.
