Anglers who frequent Arbuckle Lake may want to attend a meeting Dec. 6 at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area near Sulphur.
Biologists from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation will be discussing its five-year management plan for the lake and discuss other issues.
The public meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Travertine Nature Center auditorium. The public is encouraged to attend and provide feedback on the plan and visit with biologists about fishing at the lake.
“Angler opinions are important when developing management plans,” said Matt Mauck, south-central fisheries supervisor for the Wildlife Department.
Lake of the Arbuckles in Murray County has been on of the state’s hottest bass fishing lakes in recent years. Since 2008, it’s produced three largemouth bass weighing more than 12 pounds each, including a lake record 14 pound, 8 ounce fish, the third biggest bass ever caught in Oklahoma.
