Lake Texoma is located at the confluence of the Red River and Washita Rivers and is one of the largest reservoir lakes in the United States. Lake Texoma is formed by Denison Dam on the Red River in Bryan County, Oklahoma, and Grayson County, Texas and attracts approximately 6 million visitors a year. In 2004, a blue catfish weighing 121.5 pounds was caught at Lake Texoma, setting a world record for a rod-and-reel catch.

Special bag and size limits are in effect for several fish species on this lake.
Anglers should also be aware of rules in effect here to prevent the spread of exotic invasive species. Boats, livewells, and bait buckets must be drained of all water before leaving the area. In the Red River downstream, from the Texoma dam to the Arkansas state line, it is unlawful to transport live, nongame fishes from this stretch of river to any other water body. Nongame fishes may be collected and used for bait within these waters. For more details, see Possession and Transport of Exotic Aquatic Species.
