General Trout Regulations

LICENSE REQUIREMENTS:
• A resident or nonresident fishing license is required of all persons who take or attempt to take fish, including trout, unless otherwise exempt.
• A trout license ($7.75) is required for all who fish in state designated trout areas or in tributaries to a state designated trout stream during trout seasons. THERE ARE NO EXEMPTIONS. 
TROUT SEASONS: See map and description of each state-designated trout area on pages 19-21.
METHOD OF TAKING:
• It is unlawful to take fish from state designated trout areas during trout seasons by any means except one rod and reel (or one pole and line). 
• Trout caught and placed on stringer or otherwise held in possession cannot be released.
DAILY & SIZE LIMITS:
• Daily limit is six (6) rainbow trout per person per day at all state designated trout areas except the Lower Mountain Fork River (see map and description of Lower Mountain Fork trout area on page 20).
• There is no minimum size limit for rainbow trout at any state designated trout areas except the Lower Mountain Fork River below Broken Bow dam (see page 20).
• Daily limit for brown trout is six (6) with no minimum size limit, except at the Lower Mountain Fork River and Lower Illinois River where it is one (1); size limit: 20 inches minimum, with a possession limit of two (2) after the first day.
POSSESSION LIMIT: No person shall have in their possession in the field more than one (1) daily limit of any trout species. After the first day, no person shall have more than twelve (12) rainbow trout and twelve (12) brown trout in their possession, except at the Lower Mountain Fork River and Lower Illinois River where the possession limit for brown trout is two (2). Nonresidents shall not have more than two (2) days limit of any trout species upon leaving the state. 
Trout Fishing Tips: Oklahoma has two introduced species of trout - rainbows and browns, with rainbows being far more abundant. Fingerling browns are stocked when available in the Mountain Fork River below Broken Bow dam and in the Lower Illinois River while rainbows are usually stocked every two weeks at all eight of the state’s trout areas during designated trout seasons. Anglers can use the following tips to help them put trout on the stringer:

• Use an ultra-light rod and reel spooled with six pound or lighter line to produce more strikes.
• Small spinners, spoons and crappie size jigs (tube or maribou) are good artificial lures.
• Fishing with live or prepared bait such as worms, power baits and salmon eggs is very productive where legal.
• Try small hooks (size 10 to 18) and sinkers to keep bait near the bottom and prevent trout from detecting any resistance.
• Fish during the early morning and late afternoons for best action.
• Concentrate on fishing around structure such as behind large rocks, logs and below riffles. Trout also tend to congregate above and below waterfalls, in and around deep pools and undercut banks.
• Rainbows tend to occupy faster moving water while browns may be found in more slack stretches.
• Trout face upstream to wait for insects to appear above them.
• Fly fishermen should try to fish with flies that resemble the insects and crustaceans that are most seasonally abundant.
• Fishing often improves a few days after stocking when trout have adjusted to their new environment.

Zebra Mussel Alert!

A small, thumbnail size mussel with a zebra-like pattern of stripes known to greatly impact the environment has been found in the state, prompting concern by state and federal officials. Zebra mussels have been found inside the locks at both Robert S. Kerr and Webbers Falls along the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System. 
Due to their high reproductive rate and the limited number of natural predators, zebra mussels can significantly populate a body of water in two or three years. They can cluster together with hundreds of thousands per square meter.

Possible Impacts: 
The zebra mussel’s reproductive and living habits have raised concerns that they may affect the aquatic environment. By altering the food chain and water chemistry, as well as through sheer numbers of mussels, native aquatic species may be adversely impacted. Zebra mussels may also affect manmade facilities by clogging water intake pipes and disrupt ing withdrawal operations. The mussels attach themselves to, and grow within, water intakes of both inboard and outboard motors. Subsequent restriction of water flow can cause motors to overheat. 
Although some treatments have proven effective for spot control, eliminating zebra mussels once they are established is not likely. 

Problems and Solutions for Boaters: 
Because microscopic zebra mussel larvae can be unknowingly transported in bilges, engine cooling systems, minnow buckets, live wells and anywhere water is trapped, the following precautions should be taken to help slow their spread.
• Drain the bilge water, live wells and bait buckets before leaving.
• Inspect the boat and trailer immediately upon leaving the water.
• Scrape off any zebra mussels or aquatic vegetation found. Do not return them to the water.
• If possible, dry the boat and trailer for at least a week before entering another waterway.
• Wash boat parts and accessories that contact the water using hot water (at least 140 degrees F.), or spray with high pressure water.


Whats New for 2002?

• Under a cooperative fisheries management agreement between the Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department and the ODWC, the following bodies of water have special fishing rules and regulations designed to improve and expand “Close to Home” fishing opportunities in the Oklahoma City metro area: Dolese Youth Park Pond, Kid’s Lake, South Lakes Park Ponds (proposed), Crystal Lake, Edwards Park Pond (proposed), all waters within the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge, Zoo Lake (east side only) and the North Canadian River extending downstream from NW 10th St. bridge (including impoundments, ponds and wetlands) to NE 10 St. in OKC. Special regulations on methods of fishing and on daily bag and size limits apply. See page 13 for details.

• At Ft. Cobb Reservoir, the size and limit has changed on walleye, sauger and saugeye to a 14-inch minimum. See page15 for details.

• At Lake Hefner, the size limit on smallmouth bass has changed to an 18-inch minimum. See page 14 for details.

• State and Oklahoma City fishing regulations on Lake Draper, Hefner and Overholser are now uniform and identical. These regulations cover special restrictions on methods of fishing and on daily bag and size limits. See ”Special Area Restrictions” for details.

• At Pine Creek Reservoir, the size and daily bag limits have changed on black bass. Largemouth and smallmouth bass have a 14-inch minimum size limit. Spotted bass have no size limit and a daily bag limit of fifteen (15). See page 15 for details.

• At the Mountain Fork River trout stream below Broken Bow dam, the 20-inch minimum size limit on rainbow trout now only applies to that portion of the trout stream from the state park dam downstream to the reregulation dam. See page 15 for details.

BASS HANDLING GUIDELINES FOR FISHING TOURNAMENT PARTICIPANTS AND DIRECTORS
By taking the following measures, you can help ensure that bass released after a tournament will have better chance of survival. Fisheries research in Oklahoma indicates that when tournament anglers do not follow these procedures (especially during the summer months), significant delayed bass mortality can result. Fish often swim away vigourously, but handling stress can cause the fish to die a number of days later. The research shows that implementing the following procedures will dramatically reduce delayed mortality:
  • Fill your livewell early in the day. 
  • Turn on the recirculating aerator to begin building oxygen levels before you put fish in.
  • Run aerators contiuously. Fish in the livewell will use oxygen faster than an aerator on a timer can put it back into the water. If your aerator must run on a timer contro, set it to run as frequently as possible. Distribute fish between live well compartments.
  • When water temps are above 80 degrees, recirculate water continuously rather than pumping in hot lake water. Add ice and salt. One eight-pound block of ice cools the average 25-30 gallon live well for about three hours. Adjust the amount of ice according to the size of your live well. Block ice is preferred becouse it melts slower. Keep extra ice stored for later in the day. Water frozen in plastic milk jugs makes this convenient.
  • Add non-iodized salt (1/3 cup per five gallons). Measure your live well volume then pre-measure salt. Keep it in zip lock bags for use during the day. Add 'Catch n' Release' as directed.
  • Twice during the day, drain half of the livewell water, refill with fresh water and add half the required amount of ice and salt with each water change.
  • If your boat cannot recirculate water in the livewell, run the flow-through aeration contiunously. 
MAXIMUM PENALTIES FOR SELLING FISH
  • seizure of boat and/or vehicle
  • seizure of equipment used (includes freezers)
  • suspension/revocation of fishing/hunting licenses (including lifetime licenses)
  • minimum fines of $100 plus court costs (first offense); $500 plus court costs (second offense), fines may be higher than the minimums specified
  • up to 90 days in jail
Selling fish out-of-state, or transporting fish across state lines with the intent to sell it, is a federal felony. Penalties for federal convictions on these charges are significantly higher
OKLAHOMA RECORD FISH RULES AND REGULATIONS
  1. Fish MUST be caught on rod and line and MUST be hooked and played by only one person. (Except for unrestricted division).
  2. Fish MUST be caught in accordance with Oklahoma Fishing Regulations.
  3. No fish caught from any hatchery or commercial put-and-take lake is eligible.
  4. Accredited or certified weight scales MUST be used to weigh the fish. Accredited steel measuring tapes MUST be used to measure the fish. The fish should be measured over the side from ( tip of nose to tip of tail (tail lobes pressed together) giving length of fish in inches. Measure the girth of the fish in inches around its widest puint. Three wirnesses, one of which must be an employee of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife, must witness the weighing and measuring of the fish and sign the affidavit.
  5. The fish MUST be preserved in a live-weight condition until approved by an Oklahoma Wildlife Fisheries Biologist or Technician, and an official letter of verification from the Director of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has been received by the angler.
  6. A clear photograph showing a close-up side view of the fish MUST accompany the completed fish affidavit form. All photographs become the property of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
  7. The Department reserves the right to collect fish scale, tissue or spine samples to check fish identification and to refuse any questionable fish affidavit submitted. The affidavit must be submitted within 30 days of the date the fish is caught.
In addition to rod and line records, an Unrestricted Division includes the heaviest of those species taken by other legal means (bow and arrow, gig, spear, trotline, jugline, limbline, etc.) TYING or EXCEEDING the weight of existing rod and line records.
