Additional Information:
Crappie fishing has been fair in 15’ to 25’ of water. Lake temperatures are on the rise and these fish will soon begin to disperse out of their winter patterns. They will be seeking spawning habitat in creeks and coves and moving much shallower in coming weeks. The snagging for paddlefish remains excellent. Remember to be at least 1000’ below the dam. Paddlefish may not be kept on Monday’s and Friday’s. A free paddlefish permit must be obtained online by all paddlefish snaggers . For s complete list of the rules please consult pages 14-15 of the Oklahoma Fishing regulations. Good luck! Wear your PFD, and Take someone fishing today!

Crappie bite is holding steady. If you can get a spot on top of the dam or anchor up on the cables by the dam fish the brush piles. Use jigs or minnows right on the bottom for best luck.

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.
