    When is the best time to fish for cats in lake Heffner? I'm going to plan my entire trip around the information I recieve here. :)

    why are you going to OKC? If it is to fish Hefner is not the best catfish lake in the area. Right before the spawn and just as the weather cools are the two best times in Ok.

    My parents live in OKC. Hefner is the only lake I know of near their home, so I'm not going down just to fish that particular lake. I might be there around x-mas time. I would deffinitely like to plan a fishing trip while I'm there, I've read good things about Keystone, is it far? I am able to travel to other parts of the state, any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Sean,

    Keystone is about an hour and a half from OKC.

    There are other lakes much closer.

    I'm sure some of the Okies from the OKC area can reccomend somewhere for a GREAT fishing trip.

    Work, 6 month old son, commitments in Phoenix, etc. :( But I make at least one trip to OK a year, just haven't had time to fish in the past. I'm putting aside special fishing time next trip though. :D

    lol, true, that's why I fish at least once a week. :)

    Arizona is a great state for enjoying the great outdoors. Oklahoma is probably underated in that respect as well. I'm looking forward to fishing down there, or up there as the case may be.

    How bout fishing for blues in the winter? Good places, suggestions? Looks like I'll be down there around x-mas time, lots of family rolling into town. Tons of uncles and aunts and a x-mas day in Lawton. We'll most likely have access to a boat when we go out.

    Fort Sill is a thought, is there good fishing in the winter for blues there? We'll be in OKC more than Lawton, but it's close. I've still got my eyes on Keystone, I know it's a drive, but I've read lots of good things about blues there.
