Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Lake Texoma fishing report stripersFishing Guide Brian Prichard sends us this report from Lake Texoma:

Spring fishing has indeed arrived! Lake Texoma water temperature has now climbed into the 60° range and the fishing is just about as good as it gets! I’m just starting to see the 1st stages of the shad spawn which means the first topwater bite of the season has begun and will last for the next 3-4 weeks or so. I’m catching my limit in about an hour right now and catching and releasing until we run out of bait. We brought back 110 fish yesterday with a 2 boat trip and we probably threw back another 50 fish. A 10 year old boy caught 24 fish by himself yesterday.

I’m catching most of my fish on anchor over a ledge in the 30’ range using live bait. The topwater bite is just starting to turn on. Using topwaters along rocky banks in front of the egrets is starting to work and will become red hot, catching a fish on almost every cast, in the next couple of weeks.

This is the end of my grand opening special ($100/person) which last until 4/30, after which, prices will be 125$/person. Book before 4/30 and you will be able to go fishing anytime through out the year for that rate. Since we are catching a limit so fast right now, you will have a few different options to fill the rest of your time. When we near the limit, I can start throwing back fish until we kill enough fish to reach the limit or we run out of bait, we can lure fish, I can go try to find a big fish, or we can try to catch some catfish. You may book your trip online or you can call me at (903)815-1609. Hope to see you soon!

Lake Tom Steed Fishing Report

Lake Tom Steed Oklahoma fishing report crappieFuture pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:

Well I finally managed to heal up enough to get out on the water again and it sure felt good. The fishing is picking up again at Lake Tom Steed and should improve quickly with good, steady warm weather. Catfish are biting on worms, bass are slow but will improve quickly, saugeye are post spawn and slow, but the big word today is crappie.

Crappie fishermen are hitting the creek and main lake hard and good numbers are being caught. I got tired of the slow bass bite so I decided to show the crappie fishermen what keepers looked like with two nice ones caught one after the other over 1.5lbs.

Editor's Note: Thanks for the pictures and report Mike! I'll bet they were mighty tasty too. Glad to hear you are finally healed up and back on the water. We've missed hearing from you!!

Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Lake Texoma striper fishing guide Brian Pricard, Lake Texoma Fishing Report
Texoma fishing guide Brian Prichard on Lake Texoma sends us this report:

Due to the cold weather that has been off and on the past couple of weeks, Lake Texoma’s water temperature remains at 58°. The fishing has picked up a bit but it remains hit and miss due to the sporadic weather patterns. We are still catching some big fish here and there but most remain up river spawning at this point. We are catching a lot of smaller fish but if you pick through these small ones then you can keep a limit of good fish. I expect the fishing to explode any time now when the fish get back from spawning as they seem to have been gone for several weeks now. All of this recent rain should help to speed up their return.

Fish have been holding close to the humps and ledges at around 25-35’. Using bait on anchor over structure of this depth seems to be working best. One day the fish will feed better in the morning and the next day the bite will be better in the evening. I’ve tried throwing lures a little with limited success, most all of my fish have been coming off of bait.

I currently have a evening trip for Sat. the 18th and a morning trip on the Sun. the 19th left for this weekend. My weekend trips are filling up fast in May so if you want a weekend you need to book now. There are only 2 weeks left with my grand opening special of $100/person which ends April 30th. Remember you do not have to go fishing before that time, as long as you get your trip booked before then you can reserve that price and go fishing whenever you want within this year. Good Luck and hope to see you soon. Book your trip online at

Broken Bow Fishing Report

Lake Broken Bow Oklahoma fishing report, bass fishing at Beaver's Bend Oklahoma with guide Bryce Archey.
Fishing guide Bryce Archey at Lake Broken Bow in Beaver's Bend State Park sends in this fishing report:

Fishing in April is beginning to get really going. We are catching numbers of largemouth and spotted bass with the smallmouth just starting to get active.

These 3 species are starting their annual spawning process, so fishing this month will continue to get even better. If anyone is interested in booking a trip they can contact me for availability this month.
