Because Life is Better at the Lake

Trout Stocking to Begin Nov. 1 on Lower Mountain Fork River

Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tbehrcomm@gmail.com




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.

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 74 degrees; 2.15’ high. Striped bass and white bass are excellent on live bait and topwater baits when fish are near the surface. Diving birds are marking feeding schools on the surface throughout the lake. Use sonar to mark schools along the river channel in deep water. Slabs, swimbaits, and live shad are producing fish. Largemouth bass are fair fishing plastic creatures, shaky worms, swimbaits, and crankbaits in 6-18’. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs by boathouses, marinas and brush piles 8-15’.
