Medicine Creek replaces the winter trout area in southwest Oklahoma at Quartz Mountain.

Anglers only need a state fishing license to fish for trout at Medicine Creek. State wildlife officials will be stocking trout every other week at Medicine Creek and plan to stock some bigger fish for Tuesday's opener.
