One post on Fishing Below the dam on the Red River said it may be until the fall before you can fish Texoma?? What is the situation at the lake? Is it open for fishing and are people catching stripers or bass? Thanks

Texoma is "open" for fishing, but access is seriously limited. Most, if not all, of the boat ramps are underwater and not usable.

The fishing reports have been mixed, but for the most part, the lake is very muddy and fishing is difficult. Water is still going over the spillway, but that should stop sometime this week. Hopefully, the lake will start to clear up once it drops below the spillway. It may be the end of the summer before the water level gets low enough to reopen the boat ramps. frown

Basically, the current situation of the lake is just plain sad.

I'd like to get on the river below the dam in my boat. Anyone know a place a guy can put in on the river? I fished on the lake Father's Day weekend and caught a good number of stripers but looks like the biggest action is below the dam. Any help would be appreciated.

There are no boat ramps on the river near the dam. Some folks launch their boats from the sandy beach area on the Oklahoma side right below the dam. A four wheel drive tow vehicle is recommended if you want to try it.

But, you might might want to take a look at this post before launching your boat in the river. There is some nasty stuff in the river that can be hard on a boat.

I live on Texoma about 1 mile from Highport Marina. I went up in the tower at Tanglewood yesterday. The entire lake is red. Worst of all is the suffering and hardship everyone around here who depend on the lake for a living are experiencing.

Texoma is a very large ad beautful lake. Sad is not a strong enough term to describe this disaster.

It is indeed a sight for sore eyes, probably be September before it gets back to normal.

Yuppers. I usually take the wife up to Texoma several times a year but this year we haven't and probably won't until fall.

Gotta be tough on the local economy.

More flooding rains in OK predicted tomorrow. Doesn't look like the end is in sight.
