Lake Somerville

News from Somerville!


I went out to the dam this evening and saw white bass surfacing on the lake. I walked down and there was a guy fishing out there but he said they were too small and he couldn't catch them. So I started by throwing my normal clousers and marabou jigs and I had the same problem. I went through multiple clousers, marabou jigs, briminators, and rubber legged dragons and had only caught about 6. Finally, I put on a size 10 chartreuse rubber legged dragon and started catching them on almost every cast until I got bored. I put on a small popper and caught a couple. I finally thought I had caught a keeper but it ended up being a big bluegill. I picked up a couple LMB as well.

There were acres of these little guys and they stayed there feeding from around 7 PM to 9 PM. No keepers, but I still had fun for a while.


Lake Somerville was stocked with 60K hybrid fingerling a few months ago! The fish you are holding in the pic looks like a hybrid from the recent stocking! This is very good to see from an avid hybrid fisherman! If you are seeing acres of them boiling the surface, then the future is looking bright! They haven't stocked them since 2014.

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.
