Striped bass fish below Denison Dam on the Red River this past Saturday morning with Ryan Hildreth, Ashley Langford and Jeff McKinzie. First time for three of us, so it was an exciting recon mission with some great striped bass fish action. Ashley caught his personal best freshwater fish on the fly with a 26" striped bass; congratulations buddy! The rest of us got into fish in the pools and small runs. The bait chunkers made for some crowded fishing conditions, but still good stuff. We fished several various flies, but the general consensus was clousers and zonkers in size 2 or close to it. Definitely a place to go back and fish and a nice change of scenery from the Brazos River below Possum Kingdom Dam and the same distance! Looking forward to some more striped bass on the Red River below Denison Dam this year, especially when there is a current flow or even a generation.....then it should get really exciting!

That was fun trip. Was staring down a skunk and then hooked into that beast.

Looking forward to going back!

Nice video. I've caught a few small stripers below the dam in the last few months. First one was on a size 8 or 10 woolly bugger and the remainder have been on size 1-1/0 deceivers. Those same deceivers have also caught me channel catfish, largemouth, buffalo and goldeye, so you really never know what you are going to get below the dam.

Thank you gentlemen!

I tell ya, that fog made for a really cool backdrop in the video; however, it played tricks with the focusing, LOL! Great group of fishing buddies on this trip and to see Ashley pull out his personal best freshwater on a fly made it priceless. smile

Really look forward to fishing below Denison Dam again really soon.

Tight lines.

As of right now I am planning on heading to Denison Dam to fish tomorrow morning. They are scheduled to start generating at 9 a.m. so I figure I could get in a few hours of fishing before then since the rain is supposed to be finished by 6 a.m. Tied up a few new flies I want to try out. Hope the fish are cooperating.

I saw a Fb post of a guy who caught a 16# catfish on a clouser. He also said the striper were biting. I'm planning on a Wednesday morning trip.

Rock On Ashley! Some where you can find the generation schedule for Denison, that would be really helpful for the striper bite. Might let Jeff know that the catfish are good, hehehehe. smile

I didn't get out there as early as planned since I had a holiday party the night before and got home late, but I did fish for about an hour before they started releasing water. Only got one bite, a 14.5 inch striper that hit an olive/white clouser tied on a size 2 hook. Didn't see anyone else catching anything.



Also, here is the release schedule. If they are releasing any water, the river rises too much to wade and the current makes it unsafe. Once they stop generating, it seems to take 4 hours or so for the water level to drop enough to wade.

I fished there yesterday. They stopped generating at 7 AM. Timing was perfect. Yes, water is high and does slowly drop. You have to work your way out wading but the action was more consistent compared to the time before where the water was very low. Caught 10-15 small ones and couple in the 2-3# range. No monsters.

During the week is great. Not fighting for space and no bait casters.

Nice day on the water! I work M-F so weekday fishing has not been in the cards for me, but I imagine it would be more pleasant. My brother is coming in from Louisiana for Christmas and we are going to try and head out there Dec. 26. With a lot of people off work I assume it will be crowded, but that is the day we can go so that is the day we are going. The next day we have a striper trip booked on Whitney with Pat Small, so if we strike out on stripers on the Red River we have a definite backup plan.

Well ... are they still generating? The beginning of that generation, when it is a predictable cycle, is epic. I am looking for someone to hit Denison with on Thursday - not a big fan of doing this place alone. Will be working on OK side as usual. I don't hang out much on this site, but will check back tonight and tomorrow.

I can't go Thursday, but yes, they are generating. Recently 2x daily at roughly sunrise and sunset. Though that seems to have changed today.

Much slower today. I caught 3 nice ones. Too cold for me. I didn't have gloves and was pretty miserable most of the time.

I didn't connect with texasflycaster until the parking lot when leaving. He seems like a really cool guy and I look forward to fishing with him in the future.

That can be a tough gig - wading and fly fishing when it's cold. I have a pair of wool 1/2 finger Simms gloves that help, but they just keep my hands cold instead of frozen.

Good job! I dig cold weather fishing. Some of the best trips I had were when the temp was in the 30s and the rod guides would ice over. Not for everyone, but man can be awesome.

I've been there several times and the biggest fish I've caught might go a pound and a half. You've been there twice and haven't caught anything under a pound and a half. Good work man!

I'm confused about needing an OK fishing license wading the Red River below Dennison dam.

In the regs (from Texas Outdoor Annual) it first states:
A person must have a valid Texas fishing license to fish from the Texas bank from Denison Dam to Shawnee Creek (see illustration). An Oklahoma fishing license is required to wade-fish or fish from a boat in these waters.

Then below that it states:
On the Red River below Denison Dam, a person with a Texas fishing license may fish south of the line between border markers 1 and 2 on the referenced map.

Marker 1 is Dennison dam and Marker 2 is Shawnee creek. The line in question is in the river.

These 2 statements seem to me to contradict each other.

Am I missing something?

Is an OK license required to wade fish below the dam to Shawnee creek or not?

Also TPWD website states:

Due to an oddity of history (see sidebar), the entire width of the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma lies wholly within the latter state. Anglers standing on the Texas side need an Oklahoma fishing license, except when fishing from the bank between the base of Denison Dam and the mouth of Shawnee Creek a short distance downstream. Along that few hundred yards of river, as long as you do not enter the water, a Texas license is valid. Fish anywhere else, or wade out into the river, and an Oklahoma license is required.

I have a Texas license and wade closest to the Texas side. Also where I'm parked. If I'm ever stopped and questioned, I'll just deal with it then.

Here's the safe answer, if your feet are wet below the dam then you need an OK license.

Oklahoma owns the Red River to the vegetation line on the the Texas side of the river. Below Shawnee creek, you need an OK license to fish along the river edge on the Texas side. When I moved up here there was an OK game warden that used to write tickets regularly on the Texas side. Especially, near the hwy 75 bridge.

I haven't heard of anyone getting checked recently, but step into the Red River without an OK license at your own risk.

That seems to answer the question plainly.
My question is that I am 74 (Jan) years of age, OK exempts a licence fee for me but do I need to get a licence that exempts me. Or is it ok just to fish?

I saw him over there this summer as well, though I was wading and he didn't say anything to me.

Hmm.... I have not been at Denison dam for numbers of year now. Do they still allow access to under the Denison dam? I looked at Google and it says the road is close. Is that not true?

The road is open and you can fish below the dam.

Went to Denison Dam on Saturday morning and as I began to get my waders on after preparing my kayak the siren went off, very surprised. Entered the water at high tide and tried to fish the edge of the fast water with no luck.Tried the point at the bottom of the sand bay from the bank no joy.Began to move to the Dam wall and the generating stopped. Heard the siren going again so quickly paddled to the sand bay and got out the kayak.I was told the siren signaled generation was over. Moved up to the Dam on the kayak and caught two small stripers and was towed around with a big drum foul hooked in the dorsal fin. Did not land it with no landing net. Then a east wind with drizzle blew in. Decided to pack it in.

Sounds like an eventful morning even though the high water probably didn't do you any favors. I believe myself and my two brothers are going to head up there in the morning.

Wow Linecaster, sounds like you had quite the morning! I would have figured the timing would have been good with the generating just finishing up and all. Goes to show that fish logic doesn't always work, lol. smile

My biggest problem is not being able to get out there often enough to get to know the water.

Was really slow today. One of my brothers caught two nice spotted bass about 10:30 a.m. on a half and half streamer. The only other fish we caught was a buffalo that hit my other brother's chatterbait about 2 p.m. Still, it was a beautiful day to be out fishing.

Getting to know the water just takes time Linecaster! smile Fortunately you aren't too far away to make those trips! By the way, as soon as you think you got it figured it, it will all change again, LOL! I have been humbled this fall and winter on the Brazos below PK. Sounds like Denison is seeing the same type of fishing per your report and McKinneyLonghorn.

McKinneyLonghorn, sounds like you still had a great day with your brother; making memories buddy!

Fishing is fishing I guess, just keep trying, time is only available to some, if the fly is not in the water, no fish.Hopefully this weekend or Monday.

Well Fly Fish Fanatic. I am going to embarrass myself. Nick and I headed out to PK Sunday morning (no church service), with a surf rod and ultra light spinning reel. The idea was to hit the 16 bridge to catch some bluegill, which we did manage to catch a couple; then head up to the first pool under the dam and chunk live bait towards the dam. Got skunked on the big striper! Nick had one hit and that's it. The screwy thing was that the two guys standing to our right were casting about 60 feet to the right of us towards the two lower out-flow pipes and caught several nice fish. We fished at a 6 foot depth and come to find out they were around 3 foot depth; not sure if that made a difference or not. Overall, learned some important lessons from the trip, so we should have better luck next time! smile

thank you McKinneyLonghorn. Can anyone fish in the pocket near the base of the dam when the water is not released?
