About the Maps

Lakes of Oklahoma maps are designed for both research and utility. The depicted area in each map will vary depending on the size and shape of the lake. For reference, the scale is included on each map (expressed in miles or feet, depending upon lake size). Some recreation features may not have been included due to map scale.

The maps have been produced from a variety of datasets, including the National Elevation Dataset, National Hydrography Dataset, Watershed Boundary Dataset, US Bureau of Reclamation and Corps of Engineers lake data, and US Census Bureau TIGER line files. Locations of fish attractors were provided by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC). Other information was obtained through the National Parks Service, Environmental Protection Agency, and US Forest Service. Orthorectified aerial imagery from the National Agriculture Imagery Program of the USDA-FSA Aerial Photography Field Office was used as the background for the maps. Most of the NAIP imagery was flown in 2013, but in a few instances, 2010 imagery was used.

Oklahoma State Record Fish Caught in Lakes

 

Flathead Catfish
Pylodictis olivaris


The state record flathead catfish was caught in 2010 at Lake Wister by trotline. Flatheads are common in large reservoirs. Adults are usually solitary and can often be found under rocks or in old brushy tangles, submerged logs, and undercut banks. Natural food sources include fish, crayfish, mussels, snails, and insects. Flatheads are often taken by trotline, jugline, or limbline and are a favorite of Oklahoma noodlers.

 

Largemouth Bass
Micropterus salmoides


The state record largemouth bass was caught in 2013 at Cedar Lake by rod and line. Found in reservoirs across the state, largemouth bass typically stay in shallow, weedy areas, moving to deeper water when temperatures are extremely hot or cold. Natural food sources include crayfish, insects, frogs, and smaller fish. Largemouth bass are highly predatory and will strike an assortment of artificial lures and bait.

 

Walleye
Sander vitreus


The state record walleye was caught in 2004 at Robert S. Kerr Reservoir by rod and line. Most major lakes in Oklahoma have been stocked with walleye, but the best populations are found in the western half of the state. Walleye tend to congregate near the lake bottom, on sand bars, or near ledges and drop-offs. Natural food sources include insects, larvae, nightcrawlers, crayfish, snails, and small fish.

 

White Bass
Morone chrysops


The state record white bass was caught in 2013 at Kaw Lake by rod and line. The white bass is the state fish of Oklahoma, and although native to Oklahoma, white bass were not found in great numbers until large reservoirs were constructed. This prolific species generally travels in large schools, preferring open water. Natural food sources include shad, minnows, crayfish, and insects. The white bass is also known as the “sand bass.”
