Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Saturday, September 22, 2001. Lake level: 614.61 Water Temperature: 79 degrees. Water clarity: Clear. Generation: 7:00pm to 10pm. Weather: low 62 / high 79 / cloudy /dense fog. Fishing time: 6:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. The morning started out great with six boats loaded with anxious fishermen. After less than an hour of fishing a dense fog came over the lake. Before the fog, everyone was catching stripers. When the fog hit the bite slowed and the guides couldnâ€™t see to move safely. The two boats that had made it west behind the Islands before the fog came in caught fifty fish each. By the time the other four boats could get across the lake it was all over and they had to come in without a limit of silversides. A lot of the fish are too small to keep and have to be returned to the lake. If you ever wanted to topwater fish, now is the time to come to Lake Texoma and enjoy the action. We have gotten over five inches of rain this month. As the surface water cools down and the lake is on the rise, the lunkers will start feeding and gain weight fast. Warning!!! Be careful!!! The lake is coming up, but it is still very low. Watch for the shallow points and floating logs and save a lower unit.

Crappie are fair in baited stalls and over brush piles. Catfish good on live and prepared baits around cleaning stations and deeper points. Report submitted by professional guide J. B. Webb.
