I started guiding on Lake Kemp in the mid 90's (man was I green)and had to move to Possum Kingdom in 1998. Golden algae forced me to move north to Lake Texoma in 2001. Fast forward to 2016 and now the fishing on Texoma is really bad this year so looks like I'm gonna go back to PK for a couple of months till its time to head to the coast in July. If any of my old PK customers, or new customers, are on here and read this give me a call and lets go fish PK again. I scouted the lake on Thursday of this week and all I can say is wow. It was just like back in the day before the kill in 2001. I'm gonna fish out of my 27 Ameracat so I can haul up to 8.

Good move if you can get customers to PK. Prettiest lake in Texas and it's fishing great right now.

I was guiding on Kemp 1995-1998 but spent a lot of time there when I was growing up running trotlines with my grandpa in the late 70's early 80's If you were around Lake Kemp in the 70's you might have known my Grandpa Curly Loving.

How is the fishing around the PK State Park area? You don't really see any reports on the white bass or strikers coming out of PK. I would like to visit this lake, just don't want to waste my time with LL being so close. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Bowhunter: You will need to go down toward the dam if you stay at the state park. The recent rains have caused the BRA to open flood gates and that pulls muddy water down from the brazos.

Striper fishing is pretty good at PK right now if you know where the fish are or are lucky enough to find them. You'll need live shad to get the best result. Might want to consider a guide the first time you go, as the lake is huge and you can learn a lot for one of those guides that have fished the lake for years.


You won't catch fish like this at lake Lewisville:
