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:
Catfish are being caught on cut shad. On the lake, white bass and largemouth bass fishing is good in the mornings and late in the evening. Trolling spinners and crankbaits is working for white bass. Topwaters are also working for white bass. Largemouth are being caught with Texas rigged plastics, crankbaits, and topwater lures around cover. Some anglers are having success running juglines for catfish near mainlake points and along the river channel. The high water continues to pose a significant boating hazard. Boating is not recommended unless operators have an above average familiarity with the lake. Most boat ramps, parks, and other access locations are still closed due to high water.
