Angler lands new Oklahoma state
record largemouth bass
A new Oklahoma state record largemouth
bass was caught Friday, March 23, at Cedar Lake in
southeast Oklahoma. The fish weighed 14 lbs. 12.3
oz. and was caught by Poteau angler Benny Williams,
Jr. while on a camping trip at the 78-acre LeFlore
Williams caught the bass at 11 a.m. on a
¼ oz. Striker King jig. This fish measured 26 inches
in length and 22 3/8 inches in girth.
Williams' fish breaks a state record
held since 1999 when William Cross caught a 14-lb.
11.52-oz. bass from Broken Bow Lake.
"Catching the state record largemouth
bass in Oklahoma is a big deal and catching a fish
this large is a big deal," said Barry Bolton, chief
of fisheries for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife
Conservation. "It speaks to the quality of fishing
we have in Oklahoma and also to the anglers who get
out there and fish for them. We congratulate him on
his great catch."
The last two state record largemouth
bass as well as several from the state's Top 20
Largemouth Bass List have been caught in the
southern and southeast regions of the state. Fish
are cold-blooded, so their metabolisms work faster
in warmer conditions and they grow more rapidly.
Lakes in the southeast region of the state tend to
warm up earlier and cool off later in the year than
in other regions, which affords these fish a longer
According to Gene Gilliland, assistant
chief of fisheries for the Wildlife Department,
Cedar Lake has been known to produce big largemouth
bass for anglers in recent years - not only because
of its southeastern location, but also because it
has a history of receiving Florida strain largemouth
bass through the state's stocking program.
"They grow pretty fast down in that part
of the state," Gilliland said. "Cedar Lake has
produced several double-digit fish in the last five
Anglers who believe they may have hooked
a record fish must weigh the fish on an Oklahoma
State Department of Agriculture certified scale, and
a Wildlife Department employee must verify the
weight. For a complete list of record fish and the
procedures for certifying a state record, consult

state record largemouth bass March 23 at

OkieFish should pay attention!
While fishing Sooner last fall (by myself)
I landed 8 stripers, the one above tipped the scale
between 23 and 24 pounds, don't know the length but that is a size 12 shoe
there! Sooner record was just set at 22.7! Dang!
The good thing is they were all released in good shape, and ready to catch
some other day!

Lower Mountain Fork
Debbie at MarVals Resort says river has been down mostly and the trout
fishing has been good. White and chartreuse has been the color for the week.
Dec. 2. The river looks to have been down all week except Tues. and Wed.
The best bet has been little bitsy flies, midges, and larger Wooley buggers.
While you are there look for Sow bugs and let me know if you see any. Report
submitted by Larry Clark, On The Fly.
Oct. 22. Zone 3 has been fishing the best. The area known as the Rock
Garden down to Presbyterian Falls has been good. Report submitted by Sid and
Peggy Beavers Bend Fly Shop.
Aug. 15. There has been very little fishing pressure during the week. The
fishing seems to have improved slightly this week. The combination of less
pressure and cooler temperatures have been a positive influence on the trout
fishing. Our "Hex" hatch is continuing. Some folks have really had a blast
fishing at night in total darkness. At least this weekend you should have
some moonlight to work with, assuming there is not much cloud cover. Zone 2
and 3 have been fishable in the morning hours with generation typically
beginning in the mid-afternoon. Of course this is subject to change. Keep an
escape route planned at all times. Spillway creek is flowing at about 80 CFS
and some folks find it impossible to fish, but the folks who learn to deal
with the swift water are doing very well. Several nice brown trout have been
caught and released in the "creek" lately. There are at least 3 species of
mayflies hatching and a couple types of caddis. The fly selection has not
changed since last week. A really good method of rigging is to fish with two
flies. Report submitted by Sid and Peggy Beavers Bend Fly Shop
July 11. Best to
fish very early or very late or fish at night because the heat has made fish
inactive during the day. Use small mayfly imitations in early morning,
terrestrials, hoppers, ants and beetles late in day. Streamers are best
below major dams. Fishing also good on nymph, bouncing on the bottoms. July
11th is stocking day. Report submitted by Sid and Peggy Ingram, Beavers Bend
June 20. Flyfishers having success on dry
flies and standard subsurface nymphs and emergers. Brown trout being caught
and released on various dryflies. ODWC will stock 200,000 fingerling rainbow
trout on Thursday, June 20, all three zones receiving 70,000 each. Very
little water being released through powerhouse making zone 2 and 3 fishable.
Report submitted by Sid and Peggy Ingram, Beavers Bend Fly Shop
June 5. The
gauges were 6.28 at Tahlequah and 4.53 at Watts. The river is high after all
the rains but expected to drop by the weekend. Ed Fite says to remember that
alcohol and floating don't mix. With all changing water levels this Spring,
there are still lots of obstructions that can be a danger. With the river
high, fish the areas out of the main flow. Be prepared to fish all depths
this time of the year. Try top water and deep water flies. Report submitted
by Ed Fite Scenic Rivers Commission
Lower Illinois River:
April 28. White bass fair at mouth of
Illinois and Arkansas river. Trout biting well with yellow and white power
baits and on sow bugs, lemon squirrel, prince and olive mayfly. Report
submitted by MarVal Resort
Feb. 18. Trout good on blue rooster
tails. Trout were stocked on Feb. 13, 2003. Report submitted by MarVal
Jan. 7. Donny Locken and Ryan Murphy while tent camping for 3 days,
caught 14 trout. Yellow power bait has been the most productive bait this
past week, with orange running a close second. Jennifer Collins from
Stilwell, OK caught a 3 14 lb. trout on yellow power bait. James Collins
form Stilwell caught a 4 lb. trout on yellow power bait. Report submitted by
Val Marcum at MarVal.
Oct. 18. Gauges were 2.23 at Tahlequah
and 1.95 at Watts. The river is still a little low but the fishing has been
great. The smallmouth have really been active as they get ready for winter.
The fishing has been great! Be sure to call ahead if you need to rent a
canoe from a outfitter. Report submitted by Larry Clark On The Fly
Oct. 22. Cody Dollarhide, form Morrison, OK, 6 years old, caught his
first trout on orange power bait. Several trout were caught this past
weekend, though few limits were seen. Trout stocking should be on Thursday
October 24, 2002, in the afternoon. Report submitted by Marval Rout Camp
Aug. 9. Larry Clark, On The Fly
Flyfishing, Tahlequah : A lot of traffic on the river this week. Fish and
float early or late to catch the bigger fish. Good bets now seems to be
anything brown that has lots of action.Water temp. in the 80's. Scenic
Rivers Commission gauge Friday was 2.64 at Tahlequah and 2.19 at Watts.
(about the same as last week).
Red River (below
the Denison Dam):
Elevation 6 ft. above normal, water 55 and murky but clearing.
due to flooding below. Blue catfish good on whole shad below Denison Dam
around brush piles and rocks
Creek: April 19th The sand bass
Still running down here in Wetumka up Wewoka Creek. Nice fish reported
some in the 3lb class !!!!!!! The fish are still full off eggs and males
full of sperm, so it'll be good for a while.
Verdigris River: April 18th above
Oologah Lake... Sandbass almost excellent up the river by the hundreds!.
Reminder that the limit on White bass is 20
per person from the
Caney River south of Oologah Dam, north throughout the lake and all its
tributaries to the Kansas state line
