Striper fished till noon with no luck. All up an down the Texas side between the damn and butterfly cove, then drifted to the southwest from Washita point to the red. Not a bite, so I had to go to the North Island honey hole and throw 10 blues in the box after lunch.

I keep reading the same reports over and over and It doesn't look good.  I can't help but to believe a detrimental number of fish went downstream.  The good news (maybe) is all the other species should experience a nice spike.  Them stripers eat ALOT!

Yes, once the flood gates open or the lake goes over the spillway, the fish are gone. That's what has happened at PK. The good news is the lake is now full of shad, as a lot of the stripers left but the shad did not. I fish that stayed in the lake will likely get big fast. Bet it's the same at texoma. We'll just have to wait for the little ones that remained to grow up. Maybe Crappie fishing will get good on Texoma since the stripers left for the river.

These Brazos river stripers are as skinny as the Texoma fish I caught after the threadfin kill. Apparently, stripers don't do too well in shallow water and won't go up in the skinny shallows after perch like the Bass and cats. I found these stacked in a 10 foot deep hole and caught them on perch. I lost count but must have caught 30 fish between 15-20 inches. All of them skinny. The channel cat was very fat. There's perch in the river but very few shad.

During the flood, right after the water went below the spillway, I caught a few, and the guides were catching a lot of stripers around Burns Run. I'd like to think the water temp and habitat change are the main reason we can't catch them regularly right now.

A lot did wind up in the river, but has anyone heard an official estimate of the percentage from TP&W or the Ok equivalent?

I think Russcat is correct. With few stripers around the shad population will explode.

That looks like some good eatin' there.  Can't let my wife see this or I'll be out catfishing tomorrow.....oh wait, she ain't home.  I can't control what she reads right now.  [smile]
