Exciting angling isn't just found during warmer weather. It's also available for anyone who takes advantage of the Oklahoma trout fishery opportunities during the colder months of the year.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation stocks year-round trout fisheries in the Lower Mountain Fork River below Broken Bow dam and in several other locations. Trout are normally stocked every week or two. For more details, go to www.wildlifedepartment.com/fishing/trout-information.

Trout anglers must carry a resident or nonresident fishing license while fishing.

Trout, both rainbows and browns, are introduced species to Oklahoma. They thrive in colder waters and make excellent table fare. Using ultralight fishing gear with 4- to 6-pound test line and small hooks can lead to some thrilling action. For other tips, go to www.wildlifedepartment.com/fishing/trout-information.

Trout fishing regulations, including daily and size limits, restricted areas and site maps, can be found in the current Oklahoma Hunting and Fishing Regulations Guide found online at wildlifedepartment.com, on the Go Outdoors Oklahoma free mobile app for Apple or Android devices, or in print across the state wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold.
