From the Arkansas River in the north to Lake Texoma in the south, there are plenty of Oklahoma fishing guides ready to take you out. Come and enjoy a thrilling adventure to land some of the nation’s most sought-after freshwater fish. 
 
There’s no end to what you can catch when fishing in Oklahoma, with the rivers and lakes stocked full of exciting game fish.

With so much action on offer, half a day is usually enough to land a boatful. Oklahoma fishing guides offer five-hour trips, with some giving you the chance to spend the whole day on the water. Choose from a species-specific trip, or go after the whole lot. In some of the state’s more shallow waters, you’ll even get to try bowfishing, so there really is no end to the fun on offer!
 
Deciding where to go is the tricky part when it comes to choosing your Oklahoma fishing guide. The good news is, there’s no wrong answer! Hit Lake Texoma year-round, the Arkansas and Neosho Rivers out of Tulsa in spring, summer, or fall, and even  Grand Lake, and you’re in for a real angling treat. 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler over the age of 16 in the Sooner State will need a valid fishing license, so make sure to get yours before going fishing. You’ll also want to keep your eye on the latest bag and size limits, which is why going out with a professional guide will make sure you stay on the right side of the law.

Oklahoma Fishing Seasons

There’s only one place to start the year fishing in Oklahoma, and that’s Lake Texoma. While the northern waters are frozen over, this prestigious reservoir is a prime hunting ground for a range of Bass. 
While Oklahoma is known as a warmwater fishery, there’s no getting away from the fact that the waters are cold. Head to some river streams and get your fish on against Walleye, or target Bass in the lakes.
You’ll see signs that new life is coming to Oklahoma in March, so get out on the water and make the most of it. Lake Texoma Largemouth fishing has never been better, so get ready for some serious action.
Head up to the Grand Lake in the northeast of the state for the hottest Largemouth action in April. Eufaula Lake offers up plenty of delicious Crappies, so take the whole family on an adventure. 
Whatever you want, late spring and early summer in Oklahoma has it. Get ready to target Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Sand Bass all over, while the Catfish bite is starting to pick up in the rivers and lakes.
Come and see exactly why Lake Texoma is so famous for its fishing, as you go after the prized Stripers that call these waters home. These monsters are sure to keep you on your toes, as you try to land a real treat.
While Texoma is still a hotbed for anglers from all over, you can head to some of Oklahoma’s quieter reservoirs and natural lakes for some Hybrid Striped and Sand Bass action. There’s plenty of Catfish, too. 
The calm waters mean that the fish may not be moving at a quick rate, but there’s plenty of action if you know where to find it. Hit the Sand Bass fishing grounds around Tulsa or the Catfish spots along the Arkansas.
While the fish don’t know whether they’re coming or going with the change in the season come September, there are plenty of good hunting grounds on the Arkansas. Hit its lakes and get Crappie, Bass, and more.
It’s the time of the year that all river and shore anglers have been waiting for. The Trout run in the mountain streams provides plenty of action, so get in touch with a professional guide to get you on the fish.
As the colder weather makes it more difficult to fish in the north of the state, every angler’s attention turns to Lake Texoma once again. Get your fill of Bass fishing, as you go after Largemouth and Smallmouths.
See out the year in style with an angling adventure on one of the country’s biggest lakes. Hit Lake Texoma for some exciting Bass fishing, and head home with a delicious treat to delight the family.
