The following briefly summarizes current fishing trends in our area:

  • Lake Lavon - White Bass, Crappie, and Catfish remain good; latest from the Team had Catfish caught while jug lining. Catfish went for Shad freshly caught with a cast net. Largest went eight pounds. See picture posted in the Fishing Bulletin Board!

  • Blue River (OK) - Reports of Catfish and Smallmouth Bass are coming in. Although the Trout Stocking Season is not until November, Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is stocking the river weekly with Catfish! For the latest info on the Blue River, do give Scotty a ring at Scotty's Blue River One Stop - (580) 371-9288.
  • Possum Kingdom - Reports of Striped Bass remain good with most of the action happening below the dam in the tailrace! Do see the June 22, 2016 iFishNews edition for an excellent video posted by FishyB. Also, do check out a video posted two weeks ago by W2Outdoors in the sidebar; good insight on fishing the tailrace!
  • Denison Dam - From the latest reports, Striper action in Lake Texoma is going to be hit or miss. However, White Bass and Catfish are looking really good. Some guides reporting catches in the 100s! That said, for those targetting Stripers, the tailrace is the key. Do check out Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's most recent video of the action in the tailrace in the sidebar.
  • Community Lakes and Ponds - Catfish on bread has been working for the Team. Others are doing well with traditional baits like nightcrawlers and stinkbaits. Do be prepared for some Bruisers as a number of ponds have nice fish lurking in the area!
  • Water Wolf Camera - As mentioned in the last edition, we jumped on the bandwagon and ordered a Water Wolf Camera. We have tried it, and have been pleasantly surprised with the footage taken so far. Have post action shots of fish taking our bait. Hope to try it trolling in the near future! Do check our website - StockerTroutFishing.com and our YouTube Channel - COAF Field Team for the latest videos posted!

ThresherFishing on YouTube has been posting great videos of the fishing action around the Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, and Padre Island National Seashore. Have subscribed to his YouTube Channel  to get the latest updates of the places we enjoyed as kids living on the coast! Do see his latest video posted below!

Denison Dam Stripers are the focus for area fishermen. Do check out the video published by Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's Outdoor Oklahoma Team. Great info about what's happening in the Tailrace!

More Possum Kingdom Stripers ... of the fishing action in the tailrace by W2Outdoors! Looks like the near the Highway 16 bridge has some fish!

Latest picture posted on the Fishing Bulletin Board - a Catfish caught while jug lining. The largest went 8 pounds!

Beavers Bend Rainbow Trout video posted recently by one fisherman. Good to see trout are biting and are in the river given the earlier floods this year!
