Lower Illinois River

Reports so far indicate trout fishing is slow with the stockings on hold due to water quality. Keeping an ear out for any changes. For now, best to fish the upcoming stockings on the Blue River as well as Medicine Park.


Also, Pretty Water Lake near Tulsa is reporting Crappie are biting; they have heated docks to help brave the cold temps.  Plus a Trout Derby is planned in November; good to keep in mind when the trout bug strikes!


Lower Mountain Fork River

Reports and comments indicate the trout stockings are limited to the upper part of the river near the Spillway due to warm temps. Do keep it in mind for the time being.


Blue River C&R is stocked...

Blue River C&R was stocked last Thursday 10/26… tough bite for some but others did well with Mop Flies, Wooley Buggers, and San Juan Worms. Nymphs were slow but did start getting hits on a tandem rig Griffiths Gnat and Zebra Midge or Prince Nymph…. One report indicated Muddler Minnows saved the day! Some Bruisers out there in clear water!


Blue River Put and Take Fishing... First Report of the Season!

Fished the Blue today 3 hours without hardly a bite. And then they stocked it around 3 and I had my limit in about an hour. I caught them on spinners and power bait, 5 were on the small size, one decent. Released back in good condition.

Blue River Stockings...

"They stock every week November 1-March 31 depending on size 2-3-4 thousand a week nov and December usually more per week because they are smaller. We have a trout derby the 11-12 of November and will stock some 4-8 pounders , a good time to catch them is from the 11th on. Not all of them are caught during the derby"
