New World Record Paddlefish snagged at Lake Keystone

 A new world-record paddlefish
has again been pulled from Keystone Lake near Tulsa, less than a month after
the previous world record was snagged in the same lake by a client of the same
fishing guide.

Cody James Watters of Ochelata is the newest owner of the rod-and-reel
world-record title, after snagging a 151-pound, 14.4-ounce giant!

Beautiful Cabins on Lake Keystone

I recently went fishing west of Tulsa and stayed at Bear’s Glen Cabins on Lake Keystone.  What a jewel of a property!  Owned by the Schmidts for a number of years now, Sandra and her husband have been developing the property into a great getaway for Tulsans and Oklahomans alike.

They have built, furnished and decorated all the cabins to feel as if it were your own cabin by the lake.  They come furnished with full kitchens, linens, Cable TV, mini-blinds and air conditioning.  You will notice many special touches including faux-finished floors and wall treatments.

Each cabin also has a covered patio area with seating, and picnic tables with grills and firepits.  There’s multiple hiking trails through the woods that lead down to the lake.  There’s a covered dock in a secluded cove that’s great for fishing, swimming and parking your boat.

For a great getaway -whether it be for a romantic weekend in the woods by the lake, or for a full water-filled fun weekend, check out Bear’s Glen Cabins on Lake Keystone just west of Tulsa.

For your next adventure, give Sandra a call at 918-855-5029 or 918-855-2484 or book your reservation online.

Lake Keystone Report

Avid fisherwoman Bernadette W. sends us this report from Lake Keystone:

Went to Keystone last week – the water was truly high – it was even with the handicap parking sign – that’s usually 30 feet above lake level…camping and playground areas are flooded – the dam release was incredible – looked like a small Niagara Falls – bottom sidewalk near fishing area – well underwater – large tree trunks have smashed the remaining guardrail – saw someone catch a two foot blue catfish; others were using yellow split tails and yanking sand bass as quick as they could cast.

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the report Bernadette! Got some pictures to share with us?
