Forming most of the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma, the Red River is the second largest river system associated with the Lone Star state and the largest river system associated with Oklahoma.

Fishing below the Denison Dam on the Red River for trophy stripers, monster trophy catfish and paddlefish (spoonbill) is excellent and one of the more popular places to fish it is just below the Denison Dam on Lake Texoma.

Fish & Licenses

The tailwaters of the dam are equally famous for both striper and trophy catfish.

The Army Corp of Engineers operates a damsite campground just below the Denison Dam on the Red River, and places you on the riverbank above some of the Best Stripped Bass fishing in the southwest, especially during the spawn in May and also after major flooding events. Access to Lake Texoma is less than one mile. The campground is small but offers electricity, water, trailer dump station, and shower/toilet within a few hundred feet.

Directions: Take Texas 91 north from Denison to dam. Take FM 1310 west about 300 yards to park entrance.

All campground fees must be renewed before 6 p.m. Please place all campground generated refuse in the dumpsters provided throughout the park.

The Red River is subject to rapid water level changes when the siren sounds. Wading is not allowed above the cable marking the restricted area below the outlet works.

Multi-lane ramp handles boats up to 26 feet. Wheelchair-accessible bank fishing area. Launch fee required. Open all year.
