Tinker’s Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Report 8/6/2008

It’s about that time again, school will be starting soon. Wouldn’t it be great to get one last fishing trip in before the kids go back to school from summer vacation? We started the day off with a temperature of 82 degrees this morning. We are looking at 94 degrees with a 10% chance of rain for the day. The forecast for the week looks to be highs in the mid to lower 90’s with up to a 30% chance of rain by Friday. The lake elevation is at 615.82 with a water temperature of 88 degrees. Discharge for Power generation on 2 units is planned from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

We are leaving the boathouse at 6:30 AM and usually getting finished with a limit of stripers before it gets too hot. For those of you that don’t mind the heat the afternoon trips have been leaving anywhere from 3:00 PM to as late at 5:00 PM and bringing in limits before dark.
