Fly Fishing : Fly fishing Lake Texoma

Promising report on stripers at Texoma!

 

 

texoma1231: Fly fishing Lake Texoma

I fly fished on Thursday and Friday of this past week on Texoma in the Little Mineral area and had a great time. There were so many fish on top last Thursday that I could not believe my eyes. These were not big fish but there were so many and they stayed on top long enough that 5-6 fish could be caught before they went down. The stripers were 12-13 inches long and there were plenty of sand bass mixed in the schools. Most of the schools came up in the area of the Lighthouse Marina and moved up and down the banks from there. Actually they were all up and down that side of Little Mineral.

I had two 6 wt fly rods. One with a small top water popper and one with a small white clouser. While the fish were up I would catch them on the popper and when they would go down you could still catch them on the clouser. The fish were feeding on shad that were about 1/2 inch long so it was important to have a fly about that size. I caught as many as I wanted to catch. I think the cloud cover helped to keep them on top Thursday. Great day on Texoma. All fish returned to grow for next year.
