2017 Season Opener

What a way to kick off the 2017 kayak fishing season! Our anglers set a new attendance record and the current big bass record was beaten! The OKA's previous attendance record was 65 anglers set at the season opener on Konawa last year. This year we had 70 kayak anglers! Thank you to everyone for coming out and fishing with us. You guys make this trail what it is. We would also like to thank you Cabela's for their support of this event, you couldn't ask for a better group of enablers! There where so many new tournament fisherman at this event! It was great!


Conditions: It was cloudy and windy through-out the day. With a 6:30 first cast start time, anglers were able to launch from any public access point with the roadrunner format. Some anglers were even visible across the lake with a UFO like glow from their supernova's! The morning started off with a sustained 15 mph southerly wind with gusts to 25 and cloud cover. That trend lasted all day with occasional drizzle. Water temps ranged from 54-58.
