The Paddlefish Research & Processing Center, located near Twin Bridges Area at Grand Lake State Park in Miami, is open each spring to process paddlefish for visiting anglers. Fish for paddlefish in the rivers and lakes of northeast Oklahoma and bring your live paddlefish to the center to get your fish cleaned for free. The Paddlefish Research & Processing Center in return keeps the roe (eggs) that are subsequently processed into caviar. Funds derived from this program help finance projects such as improved fishing access, paddlefish management, angler education and more.
