The most popular fish species you can target are Striped Bass, Catfish, and White Bass. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Trolling, and Jigging. Lake fishing and river fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The Lake Whitney fishing scene has a season that never stops. This is one of the top spots in Texas for Bass fishing, but other fish species keep up as well. It’s almost like everything that swims here makes for a full day of action on its own. Whether you’re looking for Stripers, White Bass, Hybrid Bass, Crappie, or Catfish, you’ll find your freshwater adventure here.
 

When to Go

Spring! Yes, the lake has a year-round fishing season but all fish species spawn in spring, which makes it the best time to go fishing. To be more precise, it’s easier to catch fish during this time because they stick to shallower water, which makes them easier to spot. All three Bass species spawn from March–May, Crappie from March–April, and Catfish from April–June. Depending on which species you’re after, it’s ideal to book your trip during one of these periods. 
 
During their spawning season, you’ll find these fish in shallow coves, along cut banks or submerged timber. During summer, the fish go deeper, looking for water that’s cooler and has oxygen levels ideal for them. In fall, as the temperature gets cooler, fish can be found all over the place, while your chances in winter are best in local rivers and creek channels.
 

How to Catch Them

In spring, you can target fish in shallow water using topwater lures, jigs, and live bait. During summer, most fishing guides will troll or drift fish using jigs, live bait, or large diving baits. Most of the wintertime catch is made by trolling river and creek channels using artificial baits and large jigs. Some captains also do bottom fishing with jigs or slabs.
 

Which Trip to Choose

Most fishing guides offer five-hour or eight-hour trips. Half days are a great choice if you want to focus on only one fish species, or simply don’t have enough time. But if you want to be a “Jack of all trades” and catch a bit of everything, a full day trip is your best bet. Even if you reach a daily limit for one species, there’s always something else to target. 
 

Regulations

  • Be sure to purchase a valid Texas fishing license with a freshwater endorsement before your trip.

  • There’s no closed season on Lake Whitney, but there are daily catch limits for some species. Per person, you can keep up to five Stripers, five Catfish, 25 Crappie, and 25 White Bass. 

 
Lake Whitney fishing charters offer budget trips that are suitable even for novices. As the lake boasts numerous boat ramps, it has excellent public access, which is another reason many people choose it as their favorite fishing destination. Explore the beauties of Lake Whitney and don’t miss out on a great experience.

January
The beginning of the year is a good time to catch trophy Catfish. If you’re lucky and more experienced, you may catch fish over 40 pounds on live shad. 
 
February
Bass species hold up their numbers during winter. If you’re targeting Smallmouth, you should use plastic worms and jigs while fishing in depths of 15–30 feet.
 
March
Catfishing gets even better! The best areas to target Catfish are near channels and submerged brush or rock. They prefer live bait, but you can also use cut bait. 
 
April
With spring, the spawning season starts for most of the fish species and it’s hard to decide what to target. Bass are usually caught along shorelines and in coves.
 
May
You’ll find fish in very shallow waters, only 2–15 feet deep. Target all types of Bass and you’ll be most successful in areas with flooded vegetation.
 
June
As the weather gets warmer, fish move into the depths of the lake. You’ll find Crappie in the middle and upper ends of the lake.
 
July
During summer, the lake has little oxygen. Stripers move to the coolest layer of water they can find. Trolling or drift fishing should do the trick.
 
August
White Bass can be a good target choice, as they move in large schools. It’s easy to spot them because they frequently surface in open water while feeding.
 
September
When summer’s over, the fish move into shallow water again. You can target Bass and Crappie using topwater bait again.
 
October
As the water cools, Bass fishing heats up. Medium-sized, crawfish-colored crankbaits seem to be the best option to catch them.
 
November
In November it’s hard to decide where to fish because Stripers inhabit all depths. You can find them along river channels in deep water or feeding at the surface. 
 
December
The end of the year is a great time to troll river and creek channels with artificial baits. Trophy Catfish are also possible to catch, all the way through March.

Bring a big cooler because you will be taking home a lot of fish fillets. If Charles is available from "Lake Whitney Striper Guide" then book a trip with him. He will exceed your expectations.

I always enjoy the lakes in Texas, but was disappointed regarding the Texas Wildlife Regulations changes. Texoma allows you can possess 20 hybrid striper, Texas only 10. The Capt on this trip was awesome and very knowledgeable of the lake. A people person and very outgoing. I appreciate his work but will cross over to Oklahoma in the future. Thanks

Nothing but praise to the Captain and Fist Mate. Conditions were tough but we kept grinding-we could see the fish on the electronics but could not force them to bite-we suspect the cold front and wind messed up the fishes minds. My grandsons and I enjoyed the trip and hope to use Starstriper again.

We had a great trip. It was my wife’s birthday and she wanted to catch striper. The conditions were tuff but we were on fish all day and caught several nice size keepers. Our Capt was very knowledgeable about the fish and the lake overall. He had great tackle and state of the art electronics that kept us on the fish. Definitely recommend giving this outfit a try, we will use them again.

Good trip. On time and started fishing shortly after meeting at dock. Fish were a little slow, but Captain Butch and Gary tried a few spots and got us on some more fish. Definitely have taken more fish and have had days with far less, but that’s what makes it fishing! Great time on the water with my daughter. Will fish with them again in the future!!

A great day on the water is all I can say! The bite was a bit slow on this particular day but Taylor made sure we found some fish and we got our limit and then some. They know the spots and I couldn’t be happier. The boys are already wanting to plan another trip next year. Sorry Kyle, but they will be requesting Taylor again, haha. The 12 hour drive was completely worth it!! Thanks for the memories!
