New State Records Program

The Oklahoma Wildlife Department has announced a new State Record program for 13 lakes around the state. While your fish may not have broken a state record, it could very possibly be the biggest fish ever caught out of your favorite lake.

Now thanks to new technology and a network of record keepers at 13 lakes around the state, your next trophy could qualify as a lake record. The program was established as a way to serve anglers and recognize big fish and the lakes they come from.
