I used to catch stripers that way when I was a kid. Chunk a shad up into the out take and let it drift.

You can catch them like that but its tough fishing. Back when I was in college at OSU, I used to fish the Lake keystone dam like that. Big surf rod, 2 oz weight with a red/yellow jig or cut shad 12 inches up on a drop hook. Throw it out and let it drift down. big heavy weight never gets clost to the bottom. bet you'd need 5 oz weight as much flow is coming out of texoma.

We did as well, it looked like he was trying to fish straight down into the tail race, we caught most of our fish a little ways from the turbulent waters.

Great place to fish and great technique but how many of y'all "used to fish it" at this level? Me either.

Did you ever go up to Sooner Lake at the discharge and fish for the big hybrids? Some of the funnest times of my life......

I just moved to Texoma and this is going to be a bad year for all the annuual activities on the lake. We eat lunch every weekend at the Island Grill and that wont happen this year. With all the down time from not fishing this retired guy is adding some bling to the old Champ. New i5 M/G. Wow! What a way to fish. I installed led lights for my front navigation, blue and white underwater lights. Changed out my electronics. I have bought just about every KVD swim and crankbait. I am accepting excuses I can give my wife for spending all this money. I say if you cant fish buy something to fish with.

The video is from the OK side.
I've caught my best striper from the Texas side when they were discharging heavy. It was 27 pounds on a streamer fly under a popping cork.

I saw a guy catch two 20 pounders on consecutive casts with a weighted Blue Striper.



Fun times. One day when it was real cold, 8 degrees, we walked the wall and my buddy caught a small striper there. By the time he took it out of the water and walked it back up the wall the tail was already stiff. I have a little frostbite from those days.

I fished it quite a bit in the 80's and early 90's when they had the fence up there on top. Had a great time...
