The Red River is one of the only saltwater rivers in the country, and one of the most prolific in the southern US. It straddles the border of Oklahoma and Texas, and runs through New Mexico, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Take your pick of Red River fishing charters and hop aboard for an adventure!

The Red River spans 1,360 miles and contains year-round opportunities to catch monster Catfish and Stripers. Other top catches include Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, White Bass, Carp, and Trout. 

Some of the most popular techniques in the area are fly fishing, bottom fishing, and trolling. Noodling, a Red River catfishing technique which requires you to use your bare hands, is particularly popular in Texas and Oklahoma.

Whether you’re looking for a full day or a half day trip, you should have no problem finding one that’s right for you. Shorter days typically last 4–5 hours while longer trips are 6–8 hours long. Shorter trips are great if you’ve got kids, while longer trips will allow you to cover more areas and catch more game fish. 

No matter which state you plan to visit, fishing the Red River won't disappoint. Towns along the river such as Denison in Texas, and Kingston in Oklahoma, offer top-notch guides that will cater each trip based on your preferences. They usually provide everything you need, including rods, reels, and bait. So get ready to get out there and experience Red River fishing like a true pro!

Rules & Regulations

Keep in mind, you’ll have to purchase a valid fishing license. Check the local rules and regulations of the state you'll be fishing in as some protected waters may require you to buy an additional permit. If you have any questions, consult with your guide because certain species may be subject to specific limits and seasonality.

January

Welcome the New Year with a fun family fishing trip! The Red River provides great year-round opportunities for catching Stripers, Catfish, and Crappie. 

February

February is a great time to go catfishing. Pick a guide that will take you Catfish noodling or challenge this monster on light tackle for a “reel” challenge!

March

Fishing gets kicked into high gear, with likely catches of Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, as well as Crappie and Catfish. Other likely catches include Striped and White Bass.

April

Spawning season for many species begins, this means your chance of catching a trophy fish is pretty good. Plan a trip to Denison, TX and check out the annual Lake Texoma Sailing Regatta and Flotilla Show!

May

May is a great time to target monster Stripers. Please keep in mind that Alligator Gar fishing is strictly prohibited during the month of May.

June

Striped Bass fishing remains hot throughout the summer. You can also catch other Bass species, including White, Largemouth, and Smallmouth Bass.

July

Striped Bass can be found in great numbers, especially around Denison Dam. Choose a guide that will take you on a Striper run and get ready for some thrilling action on light tackle!

August

Crappie fishing starts to pick up in August. Grab your fish box and load up on these delicious fish and enjoy a savory meal with the family!

September

September is prime time for Gar fishing, especially around Cambridge and Preston, where the river feeds into Lake Texoma. Sight fishing for Crappie in the shallows is also great this time of year.

October

As the waters start to cool, Catfishing starts to heat up again. Crappie and Bass fishing are also hot, providing a good opportunity for you to catch multiple species in one day.

November

Alligator Gar and Catfish reign supreme during November. This is the time to head out and catch yourself a prehistoric beast!

December

Stripers continue to show up in numbers, allowing you to catch them off the red banks of the river. December is also a good time to go after Alligator Gar and Catfish.

Book a trip for two or three with Texoma Outfitters and Captain Tim, bring a few drinks and snacks, and have a great time! The stripers were biting pretty steady at the third location we tried, so we anchored and kept catching for the rest of the trip. Book a room in Denison or Sherman for the night before your trip if you're not close and not a morning person like me!

I booked with Jay to celebrate my son’s 30th birthday! Let me tell you what, to say it was an amazing trip would be an understatement! Jay put us right on the fish! Truthfully, we’ve never caught that many fish over a weekend. We limited out pretty early and Jay let us just keep fishing. We were pulling in some good sized fish. My son and I have decided to make this an annual event! Thanks Jay for a great trip!

Bill is the man. All you have to do is show up and he will get you on the fish. We were trying to fit the trip around threatening weather, and he was on top of it. Moved our time ahead that day, fit us in, found the stripers after looking for a bit, then boom.... bag limit accomplished. Fun time had by our group. Bill does most of the work for you, so you can enjoy the fun part. Highly recommend!
