Lake Texoma is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States. Located along the Oklahoma – Texas border, this lake covers over 89,000 surface acres. Lake Texoma is extremely popular among anglers and boaters alike. The lake draws around 6 million annual visitors.
For fishermen, Lake Texoma offers some of the best striped bass fishing in the entire country. Natural reproduction maintains a strong year-round striped bass fishery on this lake. Many lakes that have striped bass must rely on stocking efforts, but on Texoma, they naturally reproduce, which allows for some fantastic fishing and liberal regulations. Last we checked, each person is allowed to keep 10 fish with only 2 over 20 inches, but make sure to check the regulations before you head out onto the lake. There are plenty of fishing guides available and this is one of the very few lakes that you can limit out consistently in a couple of hours or less with the right guide.
