Lake Texoma striper fishing the past several weeks hasn’t changed a whole lot. Lots of hungry stripers still staged in the 40-60 ft. of water. Seagulls are working in several different areas and producing nice boxes of stripers on our morning and afternoon trips. Lake Texoma elevation is 611.85 and water temperature is 52 degrees.

Most of the trips I’ve had the past few weeks I’ve fished live bait with a little lure fishing in between. I’ve had days where you can sit on anchor and the stripers will feed until you move or simply run thru all the bait. Other days they seem to be working the deeper water ledges and you basically have to chase them down catch a few and repeat the process.

With the current cold snap, I would have to say the month of January will by far be one of the best months for larger stripers on Lake Texoma. As healthy as our stripers were coming out of the hot summer months I think we are going to see some really good Lake Texoma stripers this winter.

I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas and a joyous Holiday Season. With the holidays upon us, find yourself a little time to come out and experience Beautiful Lake Texoma.

Have a Happy New Year. Stay safe and enjoy some great fishing on Lake Texoma.

As we move into the middle of November our striper fishing is outstanding.Lake elevation is 612.97 and water temperature is 66 degrees. The sea gulls have moved in by the thousands which helps to locate the feeding stripers. I’m still fishing mainly live bait and fishing the shallow flats drifting or anchor fishing the river channel ledges in 40-55 ft. of water.

Morning and afternoon trips we’ve had very good action and starting to see some larger stripers. As far as lure fishing the ghost minnow slabs, sassy shad, cojo minnow and topwater has all worked well fishing with the sea gulls.

Lake Texoma lake elevation is 613.94 and water temperature is 74-78 degrees. Lake Texoma striper fishing has been pretty consistent. Although we are not seeing the large schools working the surface there is an occasional early topwater bite working shallow flats and points. After that its live bait time fishing working ledges from 25-44 ft of water.

Some days I’m able to keep the stripers under the boat for the fast and furious action, others I have to lay several anchors following them as they roam the ledges.With the cooler water temperature we are seeing more of our better fish showing up.

Lake Texoma lake elevation is 617.08 and water temperature is 78-81 degrees. The Lake Texoma striper fishing over the past several weeks has been really good. The larger fish which have spawned are back and are hungry and aggressive. I’m still using live bait fishing mainly deep water (60-80ft) and still working deep water ledges,ditches and humps.

Lake Texoma elevation is 618.03 and water temperature is 68 degrees. With the mild winter, warmer water temperature and the lake level above normal, I believe that the Lake Texoma striper fishing for 2012 looks to be extremely good. I have mainly fished north of Highport the past couple weeks working river channel ledges from 30-55 feet of water using live bait. Threadfin shad are about as thick as I’ve ever seen them and have already started their spawn along the boat houses and main lake areas along the rocky banks.

Lake Texoma elevation is 615.86 and water temperature is 52 degrees. Lake Texoma winter fishing continues to produce good sized stripers and an occasional double digit fish. We have also had some pretty tough days in between. Although you have a better chance at landing a trophy striper this time of year, it’s not a daily occurrence. This past two weeks I’ve noticed as I fillet fish that the bellies aren’t packed full of bait. The month of January the stripers on Lake Texoma were feeding daily and had bellies full of fresh bait. Now it seems the feed is every couple days which is normal for this time of year.

Grayson County Judge Drue Bynum will address the media at a news conference on Wednesday, February 1, at 10 a.m. at the Grayson County Courthouse in the east courtroom located on the second floor. He is scheduled to provide recent test results on the decline in levels of blue-green algae in Lake Texoma.
Joining Bynum will be John Teel, Grayson County Health Department Director, and others who will deliver brief remarks and respond to questions.

“We want to share some good news with the public,” Bynum said. “We’ve enjoyed some significant rainfall which has raised the water level at Lake Texoma. Blue-green algae levels have significantly improved and Lake Texoma is open for business!”

Despite higher than normal indications of blue-green algae cell counts last summer, the latest data from January 11th indicated improvement in several reporting stations and no stations reported areas that would prohibit water contact.

The Grayson County Health Department reported no incidences of anyone becoming ill from exposure to Lake Texoma water even when the algae levels were at their highest; data that prompted advisories from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “We believe the lake is safe for water activities, fishing is great, marinas and businesses are open,” Bynum continued.

According to Bynum, some people became overly alarmed by the media reports. He said that even members of the scientific community often agree that the data can be
subjective and that there are no readily available clear definitions of what the advisories mean for the public.

“The fact is, the sky is not falling!” Bynum said.

According to a fact sheet distributed by the Lake Texoma Association, blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) is a naturally occurring algae that thrives in waters with little inflow and high temperatures, such as Lake Texoma experienced last summer. The information also states that the organism is a natural part of a water-based eco-system found in almost every aquatic habitat on earth.
Business owners around the lake are eager to welcome visitors back to Lake Texoma. The economic impact from last summer’s media focus on the presence of blue-green algae was significant after some people elected to postpone their lake vacation plans.

“The Grayson County Health Department desires to provide Lake Texoma patrons with the latest scientifically valid information,” said John Teel, Grayson County Health Department Director. “We believe that at current levels, any health risk from contact with Lake Texoma water is low to very low, but worthy of long-term monitoring.”

The public is invited to attend the news conference. For more information on Lake Texoma conditions visit the Corps of Engineers website at www.swt.usace.army.mil/ or the news conference, call Marsha Coleman at 903-462-7803 or Michael Tucker at 405-831-5866.

With the high temperatures and the blue/green algae problem, September was not a very good month for us on Lake Texoma. As we moved into October the fishing really picked up. We started the first Saturday in October with our yearly Great White Hunt Trip. We had 160 anglers,3 6 guides, a catering service for the fish fry and alot of great help. Thanks to everyone who participated, it was a huge success. Our Lake Texoma water temperature is 67 degrees lake elevation is 609.85 (7.33 low).

Last Friday The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Tulsa District issued an advisory for all of Lake Texoma for Blue-green algae.

The Corps of Engineers’ Press release states. “TULSA– In order to provide members of the public the latest information available so that so that they are able to make informed decisions, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, has once again updated the blue-green algae matrix. (The latest version is incorporated in this document.) The Treasure Island portion of Lake Texoma west to the mouth of the Red River including Buncombe Creek and Big Mineral Arms is now under a WARNING and water contact is prohibited. Corps? recreation areas included in the WARNING area include Caney Creek, Buncombe Creek, and Juniper Point. The parks are still open to camping, however, at the WARNING level, harmful algae have been found to be present, and the water is considered unsafe for people and pets. Also, Lake Texoma is now under lake-wide blue – green algae ADIVSORY. At the ADVISORY level, water contact is discouraged and water may be unsafe for people and pets.

Blue-green algae are naturally present in Tulsa District lakes at low concentrations, however, during hot and dry conditions, nuisance blue-green algae blooms can occur and these blooms can create unwanted risks associated with swimming and wading at recreational areas. A blue-green algae bloom can occur in any lake at any time if the conditions are right.

Fish caught in the lake are ok to eat and anglers should rinse their catch with clean water before handling and eat only the fillets.

Yesterday the Corps of Engineers expanded the warning. ALL of Lake Texoma is now under a blue-green algae WARNING, and water contact is PROHIBITED. At the WARNING level, harmful algae are present, and the water is considered unsafe for people and pets.
