Springtime fishing heating up

Temperatures are on their way up across the state and the fishing is picking up as well.

According to several sources, including anglers, marina operators and Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation employees, lakes all across the state are producing good stringers of fish. With so many outstanding reservoirs in Oklahoma it is tough to keep up with current fishing conditions, unless, that is, you go online to get up to the day fishing reports, at www.wildlifedepartment.com/fishrpt.htm<.

According to the most recent report, crappie are moving into shallow water at Lake Hefner, on the north edge of Oklahoma City. At Lake Oologah just north of Tulsa, fishermen are catching white bass as they move up the Verdigris River. In southeast Oklahoma, anglers are catching good numbers of trout using dry flies in zone 1 of the Lower Mountain Fork River. At Canton Lake, near Watonga, largemouth bass fishing is reported as excellent in the upper end of the lake using spinnerbaits and crankbaits.

That is just a few of the good reports pouring in from across the state Compiled by Wildlife Department personnel and independent reporters, the updated reports even include techniques and locations to increase angler success.

Broken into five state regions, the pages also include other valuable information for the informed angler. Water temperature, water conditions and lake levels can help fishermen get the most out of their outings. Fishermen can even have the reports delivered right to their computer.
