Fishing Reports All Regions

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:
    At time of report, most of Ft.Gibson Lake is still frozen solid. Anglers should not try to get out on the ice. The ice would eventually break, causing a very dangerous situation for an angler. Most access locations such as boat ramps and boat docks are also still frozen. Experts have forecast mid-week temperatures outside that should begin to melt the ice. No fishing activity has been observed on the frozen lake. Anglers below the dam were able to find open water. Anglers snagging paddlefish below the dam have been successful.
