EXCELLENT. Water stained; 80 degrees; 2.17 feet below. The fall fishing pattern is on the way as the water is cooling off, bigger fish are moving into the shallows and birds are working. Sand bass are on shallow flats in less than 15 feet of water biting topwaters in the morning. Striped bass are good catching the bigger fish shallow in 2-4 feet of water on topwaters, then moving out to 40-50 feet of water fishing with slabs for box fish. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are excellent on live shad fishing 48-60 feet of water. The topwater bite is very hit-and-miss along sandy points and flats. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are fair on soft plastics and crawfish colored crankbaits in 5-15 feet of water. Smallmouth bass are in the southern end of the lake along the bank early in the day. Crappie are great on jigs and minnows, with a lot of undersized fish and a few big fish along the bottoms of the piles. Channel and blue catfish have been fair on cut shad. Still seeing a lot of undersize fish but the big blues will move up shallow in the next few weeks with the cooler temps. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
