Lake American Horse Roads Closed

Nancy L. sends us this report from Lake American Horse:

Lake American Horse is temporarily closed. Several of the roads leading to the lake were washed away recently. There is absolutely no access to the lake right now. Unfortunately, I didn’t find this out until I drove all the way out there from OKC. It might save someone else the trip!

Editor's Note: Thanks for the update Nancy. Were you able to hike to the lake and fish or did you go to another lake nearby?

Lake Hudson Fishing Report

Avid Angler Terry Evans sends us this report from Lake Hudson:

Spent a couple of days at Hudson and caught more bass than I ever have in a small period of time at the norh end of the lake, in the creeks. Water was fairly murky. I caught 10 largemouth on red worms with glitter. Most were in the 2-3 pound range. Most were 4-8 ft down, suspended on ledges.

At night, I landed 3 good ones on black lizards and lost one that would have topped out from 7-9 lbs, but it rapped itself around a tree branch and snapped the line (one of those 'the big one that got away' stories).

That was one of the biggest fish I've seen at Hudson. I got to see it before I lost it. It made me sick to my stomach when I lost it. My wife thought I was going to throw my rod in the lake! There's now a lunker swimming around with a hook and a lizard hanging out its mouth.

Editor's Note: Thanks for the report Terry. What a great fishing trip! Somebody go catch Terry's lunker and send in a picture and measurements...

Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Lake Texoma Fishing Report.
Aspiring Pro Mike Diehl and I had the opportunity to fish Lake Texoma last Friday, and believe it or not, it was Mike's first time on the lake! We had just a few hours and needed to maximize his introduction to the lake. Since I've fished Texoma for the last 22 years, I had the opportunity to be the "fishing guide" and showed him a few good spots.

The bass were biting well off the points just southeast of the Alberta Creek railroad bridge. I caught multiple small largemouth bass, while Mike managed to catch a large smallmouth bass. The stripers were also very active on topwater bite between the Alberta Creek railroad bridge and the Roosevelt bridge. The catfish appeared to be hitting multiple jugs near coves.

Mike's Note: Lake Texoma is huge and it really surprised me as to how big it was in person. If you don't get that way often, hiring a fishing guide would be a great investment for an action packed day of fishing at all the right spots.

Editor's Note: Thanks again Mike for taking me out on your boat and allowing me to be a "fishing guide" for the day! I look forward to our next trip together!!
