“Good fishing can be expected throughout the day,” King said. “Cold, cloudy, windy, wet, and just downright winter weather can produce a lot of fish and some big fish.”
State wildlife officials are now stocking trout in Oklahoma waters from a new hatchery in Nebraska, and anglers are reporting catching bigger fish on average.
Including the Lower Mountain Fork River, the Wildlife Department offers another year-round trout fishery on the Lower Illinois River near Gore.
The state's winter-only trout areas also are now open: the Blue River, Lake Pawhuska, Robber's Cave, Lake Watonga and Lake Carl Etling.
On Jan. 1, the state's newest winter trout fishery, Medicine Creek at Medicine Park, will be open for fishing.
