It's back. Get ready for free fishing days in Oklahoma. It's an opportunity to go fishing FOR FREE without having to purchase a license from the state. You'll have an entire weekend to hit the lakes, ponds, creeks, and rivers.
This legendary mythical creature has been terrifying people in the Sooner State for well over 200 years, the dreaded Oklahoma Octopus. This freshwater fiend is said to be lurking in the deep of Oklahoma lakes.
As hot as it's been lately Oklahomans are looking for ways to cool off this Summer including hitting the lakes, ponds, and rivers for a quick dip, but is it safe? The dangers a lot of people are concerned with are invisible to the naked eye and you won't know if it's attacked you until it's too late. The dreaded brain-eating amoeba!
It's like something out of a B-Horror film, those old creature features from the late seventies and eighties. However, this is not a movie, it's real-life and you could come face to face with a nightmarish prehistoric beast lurking just below the surface of Oklahoma lakes.
Oklahoma has more than its fair share of scary ghost stories, tall tales, and urban legends, but one mythical creature has been terrifying people for well over 200 years, the dreaded Oklahoma Octopus said to be lurking in the deep of Oklahoma lakes.
More Oklahoma lakes have been added to the mercury consumption advisory list recently. Seven lakes have been found to have fish with higher levels of mercury contamination so they have been added to the ODEQ (Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality).
Oklahoma's "Free Fishing Days" are coming up this weekend starting Saturday, June 5th through Sunday, June 6th (06-05-21 to 06-06-21). You can fish local and area public lakes, ponds and other places throughout Oklahoma without the need for a state fishing license. It's the perfect time to introduce people, especially kids to fishing and the great outdoors. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation does this every year and it's always a fun family weekend of fishing and spending time together. So if you didn't have any plans for this weekend, you do now! Grab the tackle, poles and head to the water...
Memorial Day weekend is one of, if not the busiest weekends at the lake. Everyone wants to get out of the house and spend some quality time outdoors and hopefully grilling out. It's the perfect place to kick back, relax and enjoy the holiday weekend. Both Lake Lawtonka and Ellsworth will be very popular places to spend Memorial Day weekend this year. If you're planning on a trip to one of Lawton's lakes the City of Lawton has some saftey reminders for you and some general rules you'll need to follow while at the lake. Hard to believe Memorial Day weekend is almost here and unlike last year we'll actually get to go out and enjoy it!
It's starting to get warmer and warmer outside and before you know it we'll be heading to the lakes for some Summer fun. We're actually seeing a Spring this year as temperatures slowly rise. Normally we go from cold to hot with no gradual change, but this year it's been nice to have those 70's and 80's before it gets really hot.
Over the past couple of days the family and I have been planning out mini-vacations and stay-cations for the Spring and Summer months. We've found all kinds of really cool places to go and visit, most are right here in Oklahoma and many are only a few short hours away from home.
Every now and then you see something and say "Why didn't I think of that?" This is definitely one of those times! Some kids in Sweden were out on a frozen lake and one of them had a brilliant ideal. They shot rockets off underwater and under the ice creating an all new sport and pastime, rocket fishing!
