    My brother and I are wanting to go try catfishing at Ft. Gibson dam but neither of us have been there, is the fishing as good as we hear? How do you get to the dam? Any help anyone can give us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Welcome to the BOC. If they are running water Ft Gibson Dam can be a great place to fish. You just have to find which bait they are hitting. I haven't been over there in about 3 wks. Then they were hitting shad up in the turbine holes. Good luck and make a post when you get back.

    I dont know how it is right now but i did see that the web site says they are running 4 turbines round the clock right now. I do plan to get out there in the next day or so now that im out of the va hospital. As far as how to get there it depends on which way you are comming from. From the Muskogee direction just follow hwy 16 to Okay and go through town it will take you over the dam. If you come in from talaquah way go to the stop light turn right and follow that road trough town and it will bring you out below the dam. From Wagoner direction follow 16 to Okay at stop sign turn right it will take you over the dam make sure if you go over the dam to turn at the second right this takes you to the fishing area. From Ft.Gibson it will be the first left across from the bar/bait shop. We might even meet up at the same time just look for me ya never know.
