Eufaula Lake, the largest reservoir in Oklahoma at 105,500 surface acres, was impounded in 1964. It is operated by the United States Army Corps of Engineers for the purposes of flood control, water supply, hydroelectric power and navigation. Historically, water level fluctuations, turbidity and siltation have created management challenges. A 14-inch minimum length limit on black bass was enacted in 1987 to increase the number of spawning size bass in the lake. Florida strain largemouth bass were first stocked in the 1980s and continue to be stocked frequently.  Reservoir-strain smallmouth bass were first stocked in the lake in 1992 and stockings continued until 1998. Eufaula Lake is an excellent Crappie, White Bass and Catfish fishery.

Florida strain largemouth bass are stocked frequently.

Fish attractors are maintained to help increase angler success.

State Park and Belle Starr Marina offer an enclosed fishing dock.  Contact State Park at (918) 689-5311, and Belle Starr Marina at (918) 689-2132.
