Broken Bow Bass Report

Bass fishing at Lake Broken Bow with fishing guide Bryce Archey
Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to fish Lake Broken Bow, site of the state record largemouth bass, with fishing guide Bryce Archey for a half day.

If you haven't fished Lake Broken Bow, I HIGHLY recommend that you get there as fast as you can! Located in the Ouachita National Forest and at the foot of the Kiamichi Mountains (and the Talimena Scenic Drive), you will not find a more picturesque place to go fishing in Oklahoma.

Bryce grew up in the area and has fished the lake his entire life. He won many tournaments there over the years before offering his services to the public. He knows how to get you on fish - quickly. We caught several dozen largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and kentucky (spotted) bass throughout the morning. I hooked a sizable smallmouth bass in Bryce's favorite cove, but right when it got to the boat, the line broke - dang it! Later, that rascal jumped about 20 yards from the boat and shook loose my plastic worm!!

All in all, it was a fantastic trip - gorgeous scenery, fall foliage colors, and fish everywhere we went. I would like to tell you more, but I promised Bryce not to give away all his secrets.

If you would like to experience Lake Broken Bow with consummate professional Bryce Archey, call him at
580-494-6447 or 870-582-4561 or visit his website at: www.brokenbowlakeguide.com. Check out Bryce in action in the video below:

P.S. Bryce and his wife are expecting their first son in January!!
