  • White River (Bull Shoals Tailwater) - Paul Bobby at GI on the Fly Guide Service (907-350-6610) said big water flowing on the White River has spread the fish from bank to bank. Trout are plentiful and aggressively feeding. Fly-fishing, spin-fishing and bait fishing all are working well. Iíve moved my operation to the area from Rim Shoals to Buffalo City to avoid all the extra anglers. This week this section of river has been awesome. Fly-fishing with a midge (sizes 12-16) under an indicator with San Juan droppers or assorted sow bug patterns 6 to 10 feet down has been a lethal combination from morning to noon.

  • Recent flooding below Lake Texoma has resulted in increased angling activity in the Denison Dam tailrace and a heightened threat that invasive species such as silver or bighead carp could be introduced into the lake. Right now fish are stacked up in the tailrace and baitfish are plentiful and easy to catch with cast nets. Some of those fish may be invasive species such as silver carp or bighead carp.
