I am still hearing good reports about the bass and crappie fishing around the state.
Anglers are still catching spawning bass on many Oklahoma lakes.
McGee Creek near Atoka doesn’t have a bass on the Wildlife Department’s top 20 list but it still probably produces more 10-pound fish than any lake in the state.
Chuck Justice, a fishing guide on McGee Creek ( www.ChuckJustice.com), said because the water temperatures are now so warm (66 to 70 degrees), there seems to be good fishing all over the lake.
“My clients and I are catching more bass each and every day now,” he said. “The spawn is just getting started good and there seems to be a few trophy bass spawning in all areas of the lake.”
Foss lake record
Foss Lake has a new lake record largemouth.
Manford Tucker of Newcastle caught an 8.4-pound largemouth bass from the western Oklahoma on April 9.
The granddaddy of all the spring rattlesnake roundups is this weekend in Okeene.
This will be the 71st year of the Okeene Rattlesnake Roundup. It is the oldest rattlesnake festival in Oklahoma and the last of the spring.
The festival begins Friday and runs through Sunday.
