What are the target fish?

Target fish include Striped Bass (Striper), Crappie, Catfish. The Striper fishing on Lake Texoma in Oklahoma is good year round. Lake Texoma is world famous for its striper fishing for a couple of reasons. The first is that due to massive amounts of baitfish in the lake such as Shad. The two types of Shad in Lake Texoma are Threadfin Shad and the Gizzard Shad. Both of these fish are a huge part of the diet of Lake Texoma Stripers. Lake Texoma is also one of a few reservoirs in the United States where natural Striped Bass Reproduction occurs. While the Striper fishing is generally good year round the best time to catch stripers in Texoma starts at the end of April. The fishing only improves in to the summer when we see a big Striper run from June to August. Our summer striper fishing dates fill up fast so make sure to book them well in advance!
