    Those reports are iffy at best. They are usually just based on a few fisherman who go into local convenience store and give a report to a clerk who the ODWC decided to collect fishing reports. I give them for Copan lake whenever I'm fishing there...get a free soda for it. The best info on there is elevation and release schedules. Post your fishing reports and outings on the Oklahoma section. We need more people to post how they do...good or bad. I try to post just about everytime I fish and would be great to read how everyone else is doing.
