Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge .... lies at the upper Washita arm of Lake Texoma and is administered for the benefit of migratory waterfowl in the Central Flyway. Most of the refuge's 16,464 acres, including the 4,500-acre Cumberland Pool, were acquired in 1946. This place is as old as I am. The refuge gets its name from a famous Chickasaw Indian Chief and is shared with a nearby century-old town. Also note that this refuge is on opposite side of Lake Texoma to Hagerman NWR. Both refuges are two hour or less travel time from the north side of the DFW metropolis. I borrowed some of the verbiage from the NWR site.
