Just moved to Oklahoma! 10 miles from Wilburton.

Discussion in 'LOCAL OKLAHOMA TALK' started by TwoThumbs-Nate, Mar 13, 2008.

  1. Q: Where should I go fishing first? I'll be in Oklahoma toward the end of May 2008... I have a 13' Boston Whaler Sport with a 35 Johnson... Even with 3 people in the boat, I can get up to around 20mph. I love fishing for everything: Catfish, Striper, White bass, Crappie, etc...

    Eaufaula is to the east/ne of wilburton. If the wind is up (as it usually is in Oklahoma) you may want to borrow a line from the guy in "JAWS" - 'we need a bigger boat'. Any large body of water is unforgiving. In eastern Oklahoma there is more places to fish at than we would want to spend time talking about. Western Oklahoma you'd have three or four lakes to talk about. LOL

    As Mike said, try to make it to keystone, which is probably about 100 miles north of wilburton, on the outskirts of Tulsa. You'll be glad you did.

    Welcome Nate.

    Lets see fishing around Wilburville ( as I call it). There is a small lake to the north out towards Robber's cave. Lake eufala isn't too far of a drive. If you really want to know about the good spots look around for some of the guys that work at the DOC academy at the college. Best of luck to you. And again welcome to the the BOC.

    Welcome to Oklahoma and the BOC!

    The closest water is probably Lake Eufaula, but the best is Sardis Lake near Clayton, some 45 miles to the south. If your taste goes to small rivers, check out the Kiamichi River at Claton Lake, just south of Clayton.

    Smaller lakes are numerous as are streams. Trout are stocked in winter at Robbers Cave State Park.

    Enjoy Oklahoma's fishing... we do!:smile2:

    wister lake is around 30 miles east of wilburton. i have fished it a lot. big crappie, i still think it holds the ok state record flathead 106lb. upper end of the lake is two rivers, poteau, and the fousche maline. it is kind of like a mini eufaula. murky water and a shallow lake. if you want crappie get in the uuper lake and try to find them in the timber. i have also fished eufaula on the lower end. (the muddy end) this is the best fishing lake in oklahoma imho. gaines creek has a lot of crappie in it. i am refering to the actual creek not the arm of the lake. it is just a few miles outside of krebs. good fishing.

    south of wilburton on number 2 little town called yanush fish the buffalo river bridge for crappie, it dumps into sardis lake.

    and even on down the road, is a little lake called ninia wahah or (indian princess lake). it used to hold huge numbers of big cats, and crappie as well.

    i growed up in wolf center in wilburton, for a while.
