Fishing in Texas: Lake Texoma

Known simply as Texoma or Texomaland to locals, Lake Texoma is situated on the Red River between Oklahoma and Texas. Attracting approximately 6 million visitors a year, Lake Texoma’s popularity is largely attributed to its sheer size as well as its proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, about an hour’s drive south of the lake. The lake area includes two wildlife refuges, two state parks, fifty four USACE-managed parks, twelve marinas, twenty-six resorts, hundreds of campgrounds, a variety of great golf courses and of course excellent striper fishing.
