Lake Texoma isn’t like many other resort areas—on the lake when it gets cold, people still hit the water—only skiing and sailing are replaced by fishing. Some of the best striper catches are in the coldest parts of the winter and guides do a big business with locals and out-of-towners alike.
The Texoma Living! research team limbered up its fingers and took to both keyboard for Internet searches, and dialing up possible getaways.
We may have left out one of your very own favorite getaways. Some of our calls were not returned and not every place we contacted had an informative web site.
If we missed your favorite getaway send us an email and we’ll post it.
