We kayaked the lower Mountain Fork river as a family. The launch site was so overcrowded that it actually because difficult to kayak through rapids and such because there were some many people. We were on the water for about 5 1/2 hours and we...More

Be sure and get your Oklahoma fishing license and fish for trout. Salmon eggs - power bait are good bait and don't require any special fishing rods. Be sure to check the regulations. Some areas are fly fish catch and release only.
