Fishing Report

We know that fishing in Oklahoma can be good nearly all year round but the peak time for most species and anglers is March to June, which is when we require reports to be submitted. If there is a particular lake you would like to know about during the non-required report time you can contact the county game warden or a local bait shop to check on the lake conditions before heading out.

Additional Information:
Crappie fishing on boat docks is the most productive on the lake right now, early mornings seem to be the best time. Pink and Black for more clear water but orange with pepper flake is better for stained water. Striper fishing is on right now, live shad bite is productive throughout the day but early mornings and late evening topwater action is good. For topwater fishing windblown banks with visible surface feeding fish is best. Blue cats are being caught on fresh cut bait and whole shad slow drifting points and channels will allow you to locate catfish.

Additional Information:
Due to the hot weather conditions these past few weeks fishing has been somewhat slow. However, fishing should improve as more moderate temps are in the forecast this week.

We know that fishing in Oklahoma can be good nearly all year round but the peak time for most species and anglers is March to June, which is when we require reports to be submitted. If there is a particular lake you would like to know about during the non-required report time you can contact the county game warden or a local bait shop to check on the lake conditions before heading out.

We know that fishing in Oklahoma can be good nearly all year round but the peak time for most species and anglers is March to June, which is when we require reports to be submitted. If there is a particular lake you would like to know about during the non-required report time you can contact the county game warden or a local bait shop to check on the lake conditions before heading out.

Additional Information:
Crappie fishing on boat docks is the most productive on the lake right now, early mornings seem to be the best time. Pink and Black for more clear water but orange with pepper flake is better for stained water. Striper fishing is on right now, live shad bite is productive throughout the day but early mornings and late evening topwater action is good. For topwater fishing windblown banks with visible surface feeding fish is best. Blue cats are being caught on fresh cut bait and whole shad slow drifting points and channels will allow you to locate catfish.
