Lake Texoma

Situated along the border of Oklahoma and Texas, Lake Texoma is the 12th largest lake in the United States.

In 1943, the Denison Dam was completed by the Army Corps of Engineers as a flood control project, creating Lake Texoma. At the time, the dam was the largest rolled-earth fill dam in the world. Today, the dam and Lake Texoma serve as a source of flood control, water supply, hydroelectric power production, river regulation, navigation and recreation.

More than six million visitors from all over the world come to the lake each year for fishing, boating, camping, hiking, hunting, 4-wheeling, bicycling, horseback riding, golfing and locating fossils of ancient sea creatures in its limestone cliffs.

Although you can find more than 70 species of fish in the Lake Texoma, it’s earned the well-deserved title of Striper Capital of The World. Book your Lake Texoma Striper sport fishing adventure to find out why.
