Before heading out to the lake this season, make sure to brush up on the latest changes to the fishing regulations for the Oklahoma lakes listed below:
- The 13-16-inch slot length limit on large and smallmouth bass at Lake Elmer Thomas was deleted to help increase opportunity for anglers to harvest what is currently a surplus of fish.
- All the ponds on the Black Kettle National grasslands were added to the list of lakes with a 14-inch length limit on black bass.
- All Sooner Lake anglers must immediately release all striped bass under 20 inches in length to help manage the fishery for trophy striper fishing opportunities.
- The daily limit on striped bass at five daily statewide except at Lake Texoma where limits would remain at 10 daily with no more than two measuring greater than 20 inches.
- Kaw Lake anglers can keep up to 20 striped bass hybrids and/or white bass combined, with no more than five over 20 inches in length.
