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:
Blue catfish angling remains good using fresh shad and large minnows in the main river channel of the lake. Fish are beginning to move into the flats on the warm, windy days. The fishing is also good below the dam during power generation off of the east wing wall. Crappie fishing has remained strong over brush piles in 15’ to 25’ of water on jigs and minnows. There was also some decent catches made in Wolf creek this week by bank fishermen using minnows. Good luck! Wear your PFD and take someone fishing today!

Additional Information:
On warm weather days, Striped Bass and White bass are holding close to the bottom ( bottom to 5ft from bottom ) but actively feeding in short burst. Lures need to have flashes such as glitter or silver/gold blades. Locating fish on electronics is key this time of year. Channel cats have increased their feeding patterns recently being caught in depths ranging from 6ft-30ft. Best baits for channels will be "Stink baits" and or "Punch Baits". Crappie are slow under docks with a water depth of 20ft-30ft, approximately 2 or 3 cranks from bottom seemed to be producing bites. Red was a key color in getting hits from crappie the past week paired with lightweight jig heads. Jug lining is very effective for Blue Cat in the main lake.

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:
On warm weather days, Striped Bass and White bass are holding close to the bottom ( bottom to 5ft from bottom ) but actively feeding in short burst. Lures need to have flashes such as glitter or silver/gold blades. Locating fish on electronics is key this time of year. Channel cats have increased their feeding patterns recently being caught in depths ranging from 6ft-30ft. Best baits for channels will be "Stink baits" and or "Punch Baits". Crappie are slow under docks with a water depth of 20ft-30ft, approximately 2 or 3 cranks from bottom seemed to be producing bites. Red was a key color in getting hits from crappie the past week paired with lightweight jig heads. Jug lining is very effective for Blue Cat in the main lake.
