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.

Baits:  Cut Bait, Shad
Locations: Below the dam, Main lake, River Channel

Action: Excellent
Baits:  Jigs
Locations: Brush structure, Creek channels, Main lake

Additional Information:
Bluecat fishing is excellent in the river channel of the main lake using cut shad in 20’-45’ of water. Fishing is also excellent below the dam off of the east wall using cut shad during power generation. Crappie fishing remains excellent off of manmade brush piles using darker colored jigs from 1/16 to 1/8 oz. chartreuse/black remains a top color choice.
