Lake Texoma Fishing Guide-JD Lyle, Best Time to Fish

Best Time to Striper Fish Lake Texoma

The million dollar question every angler asks Lake Texoma Fishing Guides, “When is the Best Time to Striper Fish?”  This question is a very easy answer, anytime you can!  It all depends on what the angler likes!  Do you like to throw swimbaits, Topwater Plugs, Jig with Slab Spoons, or Drift Live Bait?

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Seasons-Winter-December to February

Break out that GoreTex 100mph suit, it’s time to Deadstick for big Striped Bass on Lake Texoma!  Once the water temperatures on Lake Texoma reach 55 degrees or colder, it’s time to put the shad tank up and break out the Deadstick Lures.  If you like to catch 10 plus pound Striper in artificial lures, try a Winter Trip with Lake Texoma Fishing Guide JD Lyle.

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Seasons-Spring-March to May

The weather starts to warm up the lake from a long winter and the shad start to look for the bath water!  We hit the rocks in March!  The sun comes out, warms up the rocks, the rocks warm the water, shad move in, and the Striper follow the bait.  1/2oz jig heads and swimbaits in less than 10 feet of water make for some very exciting early Spring Trips!  April can get a bit of a slow down due to the Spawn.  Lake Texoma Striper run up the Washita and Red River to spawn each April.  We catch fish on live bait staged at the river inlets.  We practice catch, photo, and release of the big females full of eggs, but don’t worry limits of White Bass are easy and taste great!

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Seasons-Summer-June to August

Watch out once the water temperatures reach 70 degrees Lake Texoma shows all anglers and guides why it is the Striper Capital of the World.  Live Bait is great, but we also have very good days with Swimbaits and Slab Spoon Lures.  The lake gets crowded and the guides get booked up fast.  If you want to Striper Fish Lake Texoma in the summer, book your trip early.  This is our busiest season.

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Seasons-Fall-September to November

The beat-down of a HOT Summer is ending and September is Topwater Plug time!  If you like topwater action and cooler weather come visit in September. October the birds return for the winter and as the water temperatures cool, Striper put on their feed-bags for winter.  October is my favorite month.  Crowds die down and fish is great in October and November!  Try a fall Lake Texoma Striper Trip and you will come back each year.  We catch Striper on Live Bait, Swimbaits, Slab Spoons, Topwater Plugs, and anything that has a hook!

Frequently Asked Questions

We get a lot of emails and texts about our Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Trips.  We like to have this FAQ section so clients can read a bit and find answers to questions before our big trip.  The Number One Question we get is about the Lake Texoma Fishing License.  We can NOT take anyone on a Striper Fishing Trip without a License.
