Texoma on the Fly 2015
The Red River Fly Fishers started on event they called Texoma on
the Fly eleven years ago. It began as a venue for fly fishers and people
interested in fly fishing to get together for fly tying demonstrations
and lessons, casting practice and tips, and presentations on fishing
Lake Texoma. From the beginning the emphasis was on teaching
and sharing ideas on using a fly rod on Lake Texoma. Conservation
has played a prominent role in the presentations at Texoma on the
Fly as the group tried to educate as many as possible on the danger
of spreading Zebra mussels to other lakes in the north Texas area.
Five years ago the Red River Fly Fishers took on the Go Fish
program of TPWD angler education classes at Eisenhower State
Park on Lake Texoma. Texoma on the Fly was a natural fit for the
beginning fly fishing class. The event has evolved into a combination
of angler education with the TPWD and a fly fishing expo for
people interested in fly fishing on Lake Texoma and the area waters.
We plan to continue this forum to introduce fly fishing to youth in
the area and to provide an event where area fly fishers can compare
fly tying designs and techniques, get feedback on casting, as well
as talk with are fishermen on best ways to target the excellent bass
fishing on Lake Texoma.

Russell,
Are you trying to mess up my college football watching plans? Hmmm... I will have to consider driving my butt up there. No promises. But, I did enjoy my last visit to this shendig. Thanks for the reminder.

Yes, it is a Eisenhower state park. Tell the gate keeper that you are there for the fishing event and you can enter the park for free.

Hey, the usual route to the dam that goes by Dave's Ski and Tackle is still closed. The bridge washed out. Turn off one exit to the south at the car dealer (just past the RR tracks). Turn left at the stop sign and then turn right on "Lil Road". That road will take you to the entrance of the park.

Update on directions to Eisenhower state park.

Highway 91 south of the Denison dam is still closed due to bridge damage.

So, there are two options to get to Eisenhower state park from highway 75.

Take exit 70 to highway 84. Turn left on 84 and head north. After about a mile, take right on "Lil Old Road". You've got to love the name, but be careful. This is a very narrow road and there is a STOP SIGN hidden by the trees. That is dangerous intersection, you don't want to miss this stop sign! This road has several sharp turns, but it will take you to the entrance to the park.

Option #2, stay on 75 into Oklahoma. After crossing the river, the 2nd left will be the Oklahoma end of highway 91. This road will take you across the dam. On the Texas end of the dam, turn right onto FM 1310 and it will take you the park.

See you tomorrow!
