He should not need one. Neither Texas or Oklahoma requires one for 16 and under.

In order to fish Lake Texoma, all persons over the age of 14 MUST POSSESS a Lake Texoma Fishing License. Regular Texas Fishing License and Oklahoma Fishing License DO NOT Apply to Lake Texoma! Since Lake Texoma is located in both Texas and Oklahoma, a Lake Texoma license is NEEDED.Mar 3, 2020

hit wally mart in denison if launching on the east end, any wal mart up here should have them.

That makes no sense. If the laws in both states have the same wording why in the world would one lake occupying both states need special rules? Not only that, I carry a Texas and Oklahoma license and the wording reads like I will have to buy a Texoma a license also.

Texas-Oklahoma
In Oklahoma waters of the Red River, requirements of that state apply.
A person may fish in Texas or Oklahoma waters on Lake Texoma only with the appropriate license from Texas or Oklahoma, unless the person possesses a Lake Texoma fishing license.
A person must have a valid Texas fishing license to fish from the Texas bank from Denison DamDenison Dam to Shawnee Creek map to Shawnee Creek (south of the line between border markers 1 and 2 on the map illustration). GPS coordinates are as follows: Marker 1(Lat 33.81892, Long -96.56806), Marker 2 (Lat 33.81986, Long -96.5556). An Oklahoma fishing license is required to wade-fish or fish from a boat in these waters.
An Oklahoma resident 65 years of age or older is exempt from fishing license requirements in Texas, including on Lake Texoma.
The upstream boundary of Lake Texoma is at Latitude 33°54.426’; Longitude -96°59.114’.

That guides website is wrong. You can fish the entire lake with a Texas and Oklahoma license and no Texoma license.

This is from the Texas Parks And Wildlife page.

Fishing Regulations
Two-thirds of this lake lies in Oklahoma. Anglers with Texas licenses may fish in the Texas portions of the reservoir, or purchase a Lake Texoma license ($12) to fish the entire lake.

Resident Requirements

A resident fishing license is required of any resident who fishes in the public waters of Texas.

Exceptions
A license/package is not required for the following residents:

a person under 17 years of age.
a person born before January 1, 1931.
a person with an intellectual disability fishing as part
of medically approved therapy, under the immediate supervision of personnel approved or employed by a hospital, residence, or school for persons with an intellectual disability. The person with an intellectual disability must carry an authorization identifying the entity supplying the service. This authorization may be in the form of an identification card that contains the name of the sponsoring entity; or
a person with an intellectual disability fishing under the direct supervision of a licensed angler who is either a family member or has permission from the family to take the person fishing. While fishing, the person with an intellectual disability needs a note from a doctor stating the person has been diagnosed as having an intellectual disability.
Non-resident Requirements

A non-resident fishing license is required of all non-residents who fish in the public waters of Texas.

Exceptions
Licenses/Packages are not required for:

non-residents under 17 years of age;
Louisiana resident 65 years of age or older who possesses a valid Louisiana Recreational Fishing License (includes Senior Fish/Hunt License); or

So they sell a Texoma-specific license for $12 and you don’t need an actual fishing license for either state? And Texas will charge you $12 in addition to your normal fishing license just to make an extra $12 without telling you it’s necessary? I need at least $36 back from the state, if that’s the case.

If you are fishing from a boat, the Texoma permit may be of value. The Texas Oklahoma boundary does not run down the middle of the lake, so it may be difficult to know if you are fishing in Oklahoma or Texas.

No, try reading what I wrote again. A Texas and a Oklahoma license.

went back and re read it, he is right, a Texas or Okieland license is not good on the whole lake, both together are.

as said, bank fishing you only need the states license of the side you are on, get on the lake and you "should" have the texoma license to cya.

At $12 I am not sure it’s worth the risk. I can’t understand why they would need one if the laws of both states do not require a minor of that age to have one.
