Verdigris River Fishing Guide Oklahoma, monster trophy catfish, Tulsa fishing guide

The Verdigris River is a tributary of the Arkansas River in southeastern Kansas and northeastern Oklahoma. It is about 280 miles (451 km) long.

The Verdris River early history consisted of fur trading and had numerous trading posts along its route. The name is derived from the Spanish words verde, meaning "green," and gris, meaning "grey."

In the treaty of 1834 with the Cherokee Indians the river was named as a part of the boundary of their lands.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built a dam in Oklahoma to create Lake Oologah near Oologah, Oklahoma. Just north of Catoosa, Oklahoma the Verdigris River and its confluence with the Arkansas is home to barge traffic which is part of the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System, a series of locks and dams on both streams, that allows for commercial navigation between the Tulsa area and the Mississippi River.
