    I lived just outside of Tulsa for the last few years, but have moved to Wichita. I hope to go snagging below Kaw lake next month a few times. It's a 100 mile drive, and wouldn't want to leave empty handed. I've snagged before, just below Ft. Gibson Dam. Never Kaw Lake. Any help from a fellow fisherman would be highly apprichated. Thanks

    Welcome to the BoC.
    I grew up fishin below Kaw. It is an awesome place and gives up some nice spoonies. In fact I think the State Record is from there.
    I know you gotta be 1000 feet below the dam to snag. There are posts markin that.
    You might try askin in the OK page, I dont think there are many locals who go down there. Too much work for me and they taste like crap.:smile2:
    Just like ALL fishin, nothins guaranteed.:wink:
    Good luck.

    Welcome to the BOC. Besure to get your spoonbill permit along with your license. I haven't fished below Kaw, I here its a good place. I fish at Ft Gibson most of the time.
