Texoma is an 89,000 acre lake on the Red River bordering both Texas and Oklahoma which is widely recognized as a top fishing lake among all Oklahoma and Texas lakes. Lake Texoma to some is one of the most popular recreation destinations in the Southwest. Lake Texoma was built by the Corps of Engineers, impounded in 1944, and was stocked with largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, hybrid striped bass, blue and channel catfish, both black and white crappie along with the native sand bass from the Red and Washita Rivers.

The lake includes two wildlife refuges, two state parks, numerous U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-managed parks, some lavish resorts, hundreds of campgrounds and a variety of excellent golf courses. Couple all of this together and it provides an outdoors adventure for everyone. Powerboating, power sailing, personal watercraft, water skiers, windsurfers and Lake Texoma striper fishing anglers all consider the lake an excellent place to have outdoor fun. Living on the lake and guiding fishing trip on it for over 20 years, Captain Dan Barnett knows this lake like the back of his hand and is the ideal choice when selecting a Lake Texoma striper fishing guide.

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Guide

The Ideal Striped Bass Lake

Beautiful Lake Texoma is an ideal striper lake. The spawning habits of the striper make it unique as a natural spawning lake. Because striped bass eggs must remain suspended in a current until hatching, (about 48 hours), the above-average salt content of the lake’s water makes it the only freshwater lake where the Striper can reproduce naturally.

Fertilized eggs are carried by lake water currents until hatching. This process is mandatory to avoid suffocation of the newborn. Other freshwater lake populations must be maintained by stocking and re-stocking fingerlings. Stripers are fast-growing and long-lived and have reached weights of over 40 pounds. Sexual maturity occurs at about two years of age for male stripers and at four years of age for females. They can reach a size of 10 to 12 inches in the first year. If you are looking for a fast-action adventure in your life or a unique gift for a loved one, Lake Texoma Striper fishing with Dan Barnett can NOT be beaten.
