Fall is for fishing and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is gearing up for a big season.
Folks wanting to get out and fish can visit urban ponds in communities across Oklahoma that are stocked with ready-to-catch sunfish. If you’re looking for a way to do some quality social distancing this weekend with the people close to you, check out one of those urban ponds. Part of the Wildlife Department’s Close to Home Fishing Program, many of those waters are at city parks that offer other amenities, such as playgrounds, walking trails and picnic tables. And since close-to-home waters are just a short drive away, you don’t have to make a whole day of it.
If big water is your thing, check out the state’s many lakes on the Oklahoma Fishing Trail, which is designed to highlight the best of Oklahoma fishing. The trail is organized into six loops and covers the entire state. Each loop is organized by lake and species, so no matter your fishing ambitions, you’ll find a loop that’s perfect for you. The Oklahoma Fishing Trail is a collaborative effort of the ODWC and the Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department.
This year it’s also super simple to refer a friend to fish or hunt this year by generating a code in your Go Outdoors Oklahoma account. When your friend used your referral code to buy their first fishing or hunting license, you’ll both get a coupon to Academy for $10 off a $50 purchase. Just log in and click the “Refer a Friend” tile.
All sportsmen, especially lifetime license holders and returning customers, should sign in to Go Outdoors Oklahoma to update their information and complete their account setup.
