Located in both Texas and Oklahoma, the appropriately-named Lake Texoma is a vast and diverse fishery.

Not sure where to begin your trip? Pick your target species, locate your nearest departure point, then cast off alongside an experienced Lake Texoma fishing guide on an epic adventure!

Which trip is best for me?

A Hard-Fighting Striped Bass Adventure

Lake Texoma is known first and foremost as being one of the nation’s most productive Striped Bass fisheries. Its combination of freshwater and saltwater from the nearby Red River is the perfect home for these fish.
 
One of the most productive places is around the Denison Dam. Head to Eisenhower State Park, located a mere 10 minutes from the Texan town of Denison. Here, you’ll find a wealth of local guides and charter operators, running trips that vary from four hours to a full day on the lake. 
 
Visiting from the Oklahoma side? The town of Kingston is home to Lake Texoma State Park, and charters departing from here will have you fishing the waters near the Washita River, another Striper hotspot.
 
Many charter guides will happily take you Striper fishing, whether you’re a novice or a pro aiming to hook a trophy-sized specimen.
 

Hook Some Table Fare

If you’re new to fishing and Lake Texoma, or want to introduce your little ones to the excitement of fishing, try going after Panfish. Lake Texoma is chock-full of tasty Crappie, and they’re the perfect species for anglers looking for a laid-back adventure. If you want to relax, take in the sights, and come home with a cooler full of fish to fry up, half a day of Crappie fishing can’t be beat.
 
If Panfish aren’t your thing, you’ll also find those freshwater favorites, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, swimming throughout the lake. They can be hooked year-round, and prefer the waters close to shore, making them the perfect target for visitors just discovering their sea legs. Choose a charter located near Denison Dam, the Washita River arm, or the Willow Springs area.
 

...And the Rest!

If you’re not a Striper chaser but want something a bit more challenging than Panfishing, don’t worry – there’s plenty of other fish to be found in Lake Texoma!
 
The biggest of them is the mighty Alligator Gar. If you want to hook one of these prehistoric monsters, you’ll find charters departing from Preston, TX, and Durant, OK. The most common way to target Alligator Gar here is by bowfishing, meaning that charters usually run specific Gar trips. If you’re looking for a unique day out, it’s a great choice.
 
Huge Catfish lurk in these waters, too. The most popular spots to target them include where the Washita River runs into the lake, and where the Red River runs into the lake. The best locations to depart from are Durant in OK and Preston in TX. 
 

How to Prepare

Your Lake Texoma fishing guide will provide everything you need for a successful day on the water, including your rods and reels, safety gear, and water to keep you refreshed. Something you will need to bring, however, is a valid fishing license.
 
Depending on where you’re fishing from, you can purchase either a Texas or Oklahoma fishing license, but the most popular type of license for exploring these waters has to be the Lake Texoma Fishing License. Unlike the separate state licenses, this allows you to fish the entire lake without worrying about state boundaries. 
 
All you need to do is grab one from a local Walmart or marina, choose your target species, and hop aboard a Lake Texoma fishing charter for an incredible adventure. What are you waiting for?

January

Start your year off right , and head to Lake Texoma for some top fishing action! Thanks to its year-round fishery, you’ll be able to chase Striper, target Catfish, and hook tasty Crappie during this month.

February

Catfish are lurking throughout the lake, with huge Blues being especially plentiful! Head to Durant in OK for the chance to target Flathead varieties. Striped Bass can be found in the shallows.

March

Springtime marks the appearance of a variety of fish – Alligator Gar can be found throughout the lake, Striper are starting to spawn, and Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass can be hooked in shallow waters.

April

Spring means Striper spawning season, so you’ll find plenty of trophy-sized varieties to chase! On land, head to Denison in TX for the annual Lake Texoma Sailing Regatta and Flotilla show.

May

As summer arrives, huge Striped Bass head to the deep waters around Denison Dam. Fishing for Alligator Gar is prohibited throughout May, so make sure you target this prehistoric fish at another time.

June

Summer is all about Striped Bass, which are still gathering in the deep waters around the Dam. On land, why not check out the annual Kingston Bass Festival? There’s plenty to see and eat – yes, including tasty fish!

July

Striped Bass can be found in abundance around the Denison Dam, searching for cooler waters. Head to Denison in TX for prime access to some Striper-chasing action!

August

As fall settles in, Panfish fans should head to the lake – this is the prime time for hooking tasty Crappie. Striper fishing remains strong as this species starts to move from the deep dam waters to the shallows.

September

Alligator Gar can be hooked in the spots where the Red and Washita Rivers feed into the lake. Crappie can be found in abundance in the shallows, and Striper are abundant throughout the lake.

October

The end of fall means that waters start to cool, with the first few Catfish appearing near the Denison Dam. Crappie can be caught in shallow waters, and Striper start to move in from the deep.

November

This month welcomes a whole horde of Catfish, with Blues starting to show up in droves. Striper start to get slower and lazier, heading to shallow waters to feed.

December

More Striper show up in Shallow waters, making this the perfect time to visit if you want to hook them without traveling far. Catfish can be found in abundance, and Alligator Gar lurk around the Washita River.

Remember, it's called fishing not catching for a reason.. Don't get so wrapped up in the numbers, some days the fish just don't wanna bite. Enjoy the journey!

Dress warm, the mornings can be very cold, especially on a boat. However the fishing is excellent especially if you find a good guide that knows what to fish with and how to work the waters. The fish are constantly on the move.

We had a great day on the water with Jay and Mason. They knew where the fish were. We caught our limit. They were quick to change bait allowing us to get our lines back in the water. The were both kind, polite and extremely helpful to our group of five. They cleaned and bagged our fish so we can transport them home. We plan to fish with Jay and Mason the next time we come to Lake Texoma. Thank you Jay and Mason for a wonderful morning spent with family.

Simply put: Captain Tim knows what he’s doing! Having led these kind of fishing tours for 31 years, he knew right where to go to find Striper Bass! His calm, kind and helpful demeanor made my trip with my son a positive and memorable one. PLENTY of rods and reels to choose from and being Johnny on the spot with bait or a net was helpful and appreciated. We’ve never caught so many fish! Thank you for being just what we needed! We won’t forget you for next time!

Enjoyed our time. We will likely be back in the spring of 2023 as the day we went was super hot. Definitely enjoyed catching the Striped Bass as we have never fished for them before. One thing we would want different is to not spend as much time where the fish were not showing up, but overall a great time!! Thanks Captain Bill!!
