Fishing is a favorite pastime in Oklahoma. Whether you’re on the hunt for the popular walleye or crave the thrill of catching an alligator gar, Oklahoma has a fishing opportunity custom made for you. Guide your boat through shallow waters or cast your line in a rushing river and wait for the answering tug. With more than 40 documented species of fish, countless ponds and pristine campgrounds, the possibilities are limitless.

Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma’s largest lake, is popular for its annual fishing tournaments as well as its enclosed, heated docks, which make fishing comfortable year-round.
