Skiatook Lake is located on Hominy Creek in Osage County, Oklahoma. The dam site is at mile 14.3 of Hominy Creek approximately five miles west of Skiatook, Oklahoma.
Skiatook Lake has a surface area of about 10,500 acres and 160 miles of shoreline, and has become well-known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. Gentle rolling hills of Blackjack and Post Oak interspersed with Tall Grass Prairie surround beautiful Skiatook Lake. The meandering shoreline is accentuated be steep picturesque bluffs which offer spectacular views for the recreation user.
This man-made lake offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation. Boating, hiking, swimming, camping, picnicking as well as hunting and fishing are all popular activities at the lake.
When Skiatook Lake was formed, very little of the land was cleared, leaving the lake with ample cover for many years to come and providing the perfect natural habitat for the country's number one game fish - largemouth bass.. With the native blackjack trees affording some of the most impenetrable cover possible, multitudes of fish live in an undisturbed habitat.
Skiatook Lake provides some of the best bass fishing in the country. From the lake's deep main body to the uplake flats, bass fishermen are continually rewarded for their efforts. The water is sparkling clear blue all year long because there are no farmland tributaries. And no wastes or chemicals find their way into Skiatook Lake - keeping the lake in perfect ecological balance. Releases of water through the dam maintain water quality downstream and improve certain types of fishing. The lake is host to many fishing tournaments throughout the year.
Skiatook Lake is also becoming a hot spot for smallmouth bass, especially for the big brownies. Tournament records have shown smallmouth bass in the five-pound range. Other sport fish include black and white crappie, channel catfish, and several species of sunfish.
