    Lake El Reno produced the Oklahoma State Record Flathead Catfish taken on Rod & Reel. The flathead weighed 72 lb. 8 oz. and was caught by Mr. Ron Cantrell in May 2004 on a Gizzard Shad Head.

    I believe Ron is a member of the BOC as is his son Justin.

    I hope the statistics are all correct.
