Konawa Lake constructed by Oklahoma Gas and Electric Compant and was first opened to recreational uses in 1971. Fish stockings began shortly after with a focus on Florida largemouth bass, Hybrid striped bass and forage species. In 1994, a slot length limit for Largemouth bass of 16-22 inches with only one bass over 22 inches was put in place to increase the numbers of trophy size bass for anglers. Bass regulations changed once again in 2003 to six bass per day of which only one may be 22 inches or longer. The purpose of this regulation was to encourage more angler harvest of smaller bass. Florida largemouth bass stocking ceased in 2005 to further prevent overcrowding. These changes appeared to be working with a sizeable decrease in Largemouth bass abundance by 2006, however, abundance has increased and varied slightly since. In recent years Hybrid striped bass stockings have been reduced with the purpose of reducing competition for forage in order to maintain growth rates of Largemouth bass. Konawa Lake is an excellent Largemouth Bass and Channel Catfish fishery.

Hybrid striped bass are stocked periodically.

Fish attractors are maintained to help increase angler success.


Allowed Methods: rod and reel, bowfishing, and noodling.
