Freshwater Striper Fishing at Lake Texoma

Happy Clients of Texoma Trips

Fishing for stripers on Lake Texoma can be a bit more challenging than fishing for some other types of fish. This is because stripers typically move around in the lake in order to remain in their preferred conditions. As such, just because a certain spot may have been good for striper fishing yesterday, it does not mean that it will remain a good spot today or tomorrow.

Here at Texoma Trips, we can help you find the best spot for your charter fishing adventure. Here are some things to look out for if you’re fishing for striper.

Cooler Water Temperatures

Stripers tend to prefer water temperatures below 65 degrees. Although they can certainly be found in warmer waters, you’ll have better luck if you stick to areas that are cooler. Look for shaded coves or areas of the lake where the temperature stays lower as the day progresses, and you’ll have better luck catching stripers.

Time of Day

You probably already know that the time of day will affect the likelihood of catching Lake Texoma Stripers. Making things more confusing, some stripers prefer different times than others. With stripers, you will have better luck early in the morning or late in the evening. During the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest, you can still catch striper, but it can be more of a challenge – until sun starts to sink in the sky.

Structures in the Water

Of course, you will find stripers where the food is, and food will tend to be more highly concentrated around submerged structures that break the flow of the current. Sandbars, rock piles, and other similar structures will frequently have larger fish hanging around.
