Striper Express Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Report 11/16/2009

Lake Texoma elevation 617.74
Lake Texoma temperature 62-65 degrees

Greetings everyone from Lake Texoma and Striper Express Guide Service. This fall fishing is just fantastic! Gulls and schools are all over the lake. Fish are on structure and in the creeks. Stripers are roaming the flats…seeing the pattern here? Sassy shad has been getting us easy limits on most days. On some days they want chartreuse then the next day white glo or pearl. Spike-it dip been helpful on most days.  

The live bait fishing is awesome as well. Shad are easy to get early in most marinas early or in the backs f some creeks later in the day. Drifting or on anchor is working just get the fish under you. Heard reports of all depths but 20-40ft along the river channel near some activity always a sure bet this time of year.

Tight Lines,

Water Temp: 68      Lake Elevation: 619.68

We are experiencing the best fishing we have had in six months RIGHT NOW! The unseasonably warm temperatures are bringing some very nice boxes of fish to the table. The lake water has begun to cool which brings great fishing all day long and will continue until the water temperature gets below 40 degress. The stripers are still hitting pencil poppers on topwater until about thirty minutes after the sun rises. Overcast days will allow for more topwater action until 9 or 10am. The stripers are feeding and are very active right now. We have brought lots of nice stripers over 10 lbs. to the cleaning tables and plenty of box fish. After the topwater action, the silversides are biting on soft bait sassy shad. 12-16” stripers are being caught “all over” the lake right now. Anchoring drop offs 18-24’ have been producing great box fish on live bait.

We continue to use pencil poppers and soft plastic lures for all you lure fishermen, however every boat that leaves our dock is stocked with plenty of live bait.

Our morning trips for those interested in top water action begin at 5:45am. Afternoon trips begin @ 1pm.

Get in on some of the best fishing of the year!!!

Lake Texoma is beautiful these days, with the water temp at 67; levels at 620.53; gates closed; sunrise, 6:49a and sunset 5:31p. We are catching our limits each trip, with fish gradually getting bigger, but still somewhat skinny. Trying to depart right at sunrise, hitting a few banks with artificial, for trophy fish, and checking some jug lines for those customers who request juglines. Going to be on the windy side this weekend 15-25 winds, and hoping can get at point where wind is not a problem. Fishing is good and think a new record striper was caught just recently. My dream is to get someone that new record for striper on Lake Texoma. "J.D."

  November fishing on Lake Texoma is a prime time to go striper fishing. Huge schools of striped bass are roaming the lake. Some of the fish will tip the scales at 15+ lbs. Thousands of seagulls are on the lake for the fall and winter. The water has cooled down and you can go fishing anytime of the day. Sassy Shad jigs are the baits of choice. You can use a 1-ounce jig head with a 4-inch whiteglo or chartreuse soft plastic tail. You need a good pair of binoculars to locate the different schools of fish that the birds are “working”. Your favorite fishing hotspots are the North Island area, west to the Willis Bridge.  

Your fishing adventure awaits you with Striper Express. Now through the end of the year is considered the best fishing of the year. This is perfect for company trips, your family and friends.  You can purchase gift certificates for any occasion.

Fishing has been very good, with lots of trips ending with lots of fish but stripers on the small size, with the big fish skinny. I have had lots of request for catfish juglines harvesting lots of big fish. Weather has been rainy & cool, but good.  


Last Sunday, we got a 46.9 lb. blue along with 21, 17, 12lbers., etc. Good thing Lionel and his crew helped me clean them or we would have been cleaning all night. They and other groups, Chilli and Son from OKC, are coming back for more next month….."J.D."

With the cooler the Lake Texoma water temperature has been steadily dropping. These conditions have perked the stripers up and made for easy pickings. Out of the past two weeks I have fished all but one day and have had great results each day. We have seen some good looking limits of Lake Texoma stripers on these trips.

The Fall Fishing on Lake Texoma is legendary. The month of October is when the weather begins to cool down and the fishing heats up! Water temperatures are dropping, the seagulls have arrived and the fishing gets better everyday.You board and depart early mornings and cast topwater plugs on the shallow banks. The 6 inch Pencil Popper is the number 1 plug to use. There is nothing more exciting than topwater striper fishing on Lake Texoma. Stripers are the best fighting fish we have in fresh water. Vicious strikes is putting it mildly.

After an hour or more of topwater fishing, you switch over to Sassy Shad jigs. Our favorites are from You need a good pair of binoculars and look for the bird activity. Always keep your eyes on the seagulls, as large schools of stripers will be under the birds.

After a hot July and August, the month of September came in with unusually cooler days. With the cooler weather we have ween the striper fishing on Lake Texoma steadily improve. Top-water bite with these cool cloudier and rainy days has been outstanding. Fishing the flats and shallow banks seems to be the best tactic for me. I haven't been chasing the schools on top much as the fish I have been catching on top have been on the smaller side found that most of the stripers working the top are on the smaller side but there is a lot of action and multiple hookups. The better stripers we have caught have been in the 5 to 20 feet of water range. I have fished several bait trips also. We have been using small gizzards shad. and fishing in 30 to 45 feet of water on anchor. We have had no problem catching good limits of Lake Texoma stripers fishing this way.

Tinker’s Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Report 9/9/2009

The last big holiday weekend of the year has come and gone on beautiful Lake Texoma but the fishing is nothing short of awesome! The top water action has begun. There not staying up for long but we are seeing lots of fish bust the water early. Stripers are good on Pencil Poppers early and live bait later in the day. The bellies of the silversides are getting bigger!

Check out these beautiful 16# and 17# stripers landed by the Cunningham Family on September 5th guided by David Escamilla. These trophies were caught on Pencil Poppers early in the morning.

The temperatures are beginning to drop to signify that Fall is nearing. The next ten days will bring cooler temperatures with the lows in the 60’s and highs in the low to mid 80’s with winds 5-15mph. There is a good chance of rain on Saturday so be sure to bring your rain gear. The rain will cool the water and add some oxygen to the water.

The pool elevation is 615.90 and the water temperature is 78-83 degrees.
