Lake Eufaula needs no introduction, especially if you’re an Oklahoman, born and raised. This gorgeous lake is also well-known as the largest lake in the Sooner State. And with hundreds of miles of shoreline and abundant waters to explore, the fishing Lake Eufaula boasts shouldn’t be missed.
Also known as the “Gentle Giant,” the lake is the home of dozens of freshwater species that both locals and visitors love to target. Crappie are by far the favorite catch, closely followed by various Bass species (Largemouth, Smallmouth, White, Striped) and Sunfish. If you’re looking for a bigger, more formidable opponent, then Catfishing should be on your to-do list.
Fishing on the lake is open year-round, so there’s a professional guide to take you whenever you decide to pop by. Spend a couple of hours fishing for Catfish and Bass with your family or dedicate a full day to your fishing efforts and catch plenty of Crappie to fill your freezer with delicious fish fillets.
With such outstanding angling opportunities, it only makes sense that Lake Eufaula hosts around 15 fishing tournaments every year. Whether you’d like to test your hand at competitive Bass fishing in August or if you want to try and beat last year’s Crappie record, you’re in for a good time.
There are several boat ramps where you can find your guide, including the one in the Lake Eufaula State Park. There’s also the main boat ramp, Lake Eufaula Marina, and Graves Creek Boat Ramp. In whichever part of the lake you’re fishing, there’ll be a ramp of a dock nearby.
