Fly fishing Lake Texoma

More details on Texoma's action!



mickfly: Re: Fly fishing Lake Texoma

Most of my fish were caught deeper -- 300 grain sink tip and a countdown from ten to 30 seconds, depending on where they showed up on the fish finder. But when they were up, it was just cast and strip, as fast as you can. Going back tomorrow for another dose of this fishing medicine!

White Bass on Lavon!


Great report on the White Bass action on Lavon!


Just after 10am launch from Lavonia South, graph lit up.  Within minutes plenty of surface action all around. 


No pictures because I don't keep Sandies.  Despicable. spiney, awful tasting fish, but fun to catch & release. 


Doesn't anyone post anymore?  


p.s.  Went out Wednesday 06-21 and Sandies were on the surface around 1:30 about 1,000 yards west of RR bridge (east of Hybrid point).  Used the big motor but they were gone by the time I got there.

Fly Fishing : Fly fishing Lake Texoma

Promising report on stripers at Texoma!



texoma1231: Fly fishing Lake Texoma

I fly fished on Thursday and Friday of this past week on Texoma in the Little Mineral area and had a great time. There were so many fish on top last Thursday that I could not believe my eyes. These were not big fish but there were so many and they stayed on top long enough that 5-6 fish could be caught before they went down. The stripers were 12-13 inches long and there were plenty of sand bass mixed in the schools. Most of the schools came up in the area of the Lighthouse Marina and moved up and down the banks from there. Actually they were all up and down that side of Little Mineral.

I had two 6 wt fly rods. One with a small top water popper and one with a small white clouser. While the fish were up I would catch them on the popper and when they would go down you could still catch them on the clouser. The fish were feeding on shad that were about 1/2 inch long so it was important to have a fly about that size. I caught as many as I wanted to catch. I think the cloud cover helped to keep them on top Thursday. Great day on Texoma. All fish returned to grow for next year.

Fly Fishing : Re: Denison dam

Good to know!


texoma1231: Re: Denison dam

I fly fished the river below the dam this morning. Water came on at 8:00am and they turn it off at 10:00pm the last few days. I do not think that it will change until the lake goes down a foot or so. I also fished there yesterday morning when the water came on and the fish were feeding on the surface just above the pylons as the water comes on. They are generally in the middle when this occurs but can be right at the bank. It is easy to see that these fish are in the 5 lb range with some larger fish mixed in. The best opportunities for fly fishing are on the Texas side when they are generating.
No need for sink tip ling you will stay hung up more often that not. White clousers are a good choice but most any color will work. They need to be about the size of a threadfin shad.
You will have plenty of company this weekend but will also have a chance at some great stripers!!!

Pedernales at Stonewall

Report from the Hill Country!



1960texan: Re: Pedernales at Stonewall

I was just at the LBJ State Park a few weeks ago and caught a few bass and quite a few sunfish on an olive wooly bugger. I was wading at the foot of one of the dams. Easy access and no entrance fees.

First Trout On The Fly

Always good to see trout on the fly!



1960texan: First Trout On The Fly

I'm still new to fly fishing in general...I've caught plenty of sunfish and several bass on the fly, but until this morning have hooked but not landed any trout. I wanted to change that before the weather got hot enough to overly stress the fish, so I woke up early to hit the lower Guadalupe just below Canyon Lake Dam. River was flowing at 278 CFS and the water temperature was holding at 62 degrees.

It took a while to get that first strike and when it finally happened I was so surprised I tried to set the hook too late. That snapped me out of my daydream and a couple of casts later I was ready when this one hit the brown wooly bugger I was drifting:


It put up a nice fight, and after posing for a quick photo was released back into the Guadalupe.

I've learned a lot by paying attention to what others have shared on this forum. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge.

Now I've got to figure out nymphing.
