We received an inquiry on the status of the top water action on Lake Texoma. Usually July heralds some fantastic top water fishing on Lake Texoma. Last year was an exception with the bait fish die off, but this year is beginning to look promising. As of now, we hear that there is still plenty of bait fish and the stripers are still deep enough that the top water action is sporadic at best. We have heard stories of schools hitting top, but the action doesn't last long at all. With the water temp rising the oxygen levels in the lake should force the bait fish up which the stripers will follow and the top water action will be on. Stay tuned.
