The Best Waters For Oklahoma Catfishing

Now, no catfishing trip into the waters of Oklahoma would be complete if you neglected the river systems in this cat rich state.

The Cimarron River is a great place to fish. If you like fishing with prepared or cut bait, you will probably see better catches of blue cat, rather than channel catfish. If you want to catch flathead, try live bait instead. Just get those hooks in there, because the water is rich!

Kiamichi River is another location in which you will enjoy ample opportunity to pull Mr. Whiskers from the river. Don’t forget the Arkansas River either. Some of the best catfishing in the state of Oklahoma comes straight from the waters of the Arkansas River.

If you fish from the so called secret locations, or hot spots, sich as bayous, little coves, and oxbows, you will find large numbers of cats intent on staying out of the river’s current, and they are ripe for the picking.

There is good access between Claremore and Catoosa off of Hwy 66. In these locations, it is easy to catch blues from five to fifteen pounds, and it is not unheard of to pull monsters from the water weighing in at over fifty pounds. The flathead usually weigh in from fifteen to thirty-five pounds.
