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:
Lake levels are beginning to stabilize which is good news for anglers. Fish are becoming more predictable and normal in their patterns. Striped Bass are in early stages of staging at the mouths of Red and Washita river. Striped bass are between deadsticking flukes and live bait, anglers should have both on their boat if they want to effectively harvest Striper. Crappie are still holding close to bottom in 25ft-35ft of water, slow or no moment of jig will be the best method. Small and Largemouth bass are in shallow water and are hitting slow moving crankbaits. Bluecats are being caught in 10ft-20ft of water near river mouths by drifting whole or cut shad.
