Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation Fish Report

Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation Fish Report
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.
