    Who all fishes the Deep Fork? Does anyone fish in the Deep Fork WMA? I here that the WMA is really nice and swampy. I plan on making that a destination of mine this summer. I know some of you guys are river fishers.

    Deep Fork headwaters are near Briton (suberb of OKC) runs east about 10-12 miles where it was damed to form Arcadia Lake. My personal thoughts are that it is sort of misnamed as it should be Deep Fork Creek. LOL When it floods it covers Highway 66, I believe. It used to be a nuisance. Have heard all my life about the catfish noodled out of the river (creek)...but I have never personally fished it. Think it is something the locals like & use, but if your serious about fish you go to the Arkansas or one of the rivers in the NE portion of the state or to the Red.

    You know, I live about 100 to 150 yards off Guthrie Lake and seldom fish it...Liberty is about 1 1/2 miles away, Arcadia around 15 and Carl Blackwell is about 34...I seldom fish any of these lakes. I guess I am too envious of the guys in the Northeastern and eastern parts of the state, and want to fish their waters. If I was fishing for eating, I'd probably hit Liberty and Guthrie, but, I hate to say it, I detest the taste of fish... lol... lobster I can take, but no fish. Everything I catch is either CPR'd or given to someone else who does eat fish.

    Oh yea. It is the headwater so it is just a little intermittant stream at that point. It actually starts in the Woodbrier Apartments on Ann Arbor between 39th and 36th. Look on the West side of an Ann Arbor and you will see the sign im talking about. The creek goes under Ann Arbor and heads east as a drainage ditch then becomes the stream that runs through Will Rodgers park. It continues heading east and runs near the Bell Isle area where it sometimes known as the Penn Ditch (by skateboarders and graffiti painters anyway). It keeps heading east running along I-44 a while. Then it cuts north for a bit and creates Arcadia Lake. In all likelyhood you have driven over it without ever noticing. If I hadn't lived in Woodbrier apartments as a kid I probably wouldn't have noiticed it either. Kinda Cool. I used to float around in it during heavy rains when I was a kid.

    dont feel too bad. Stinchcomb wildlife refuge is just up 39th. It has some decent holes in it and it is really pretty if you have a kayack or canoe.
