Welcome to the Fort Gibson Lake Area
Northeast Oklahoma has long been noted for its outstanding fishing, and at Fort Gibson anglers will find black bass, white bass, crappie and several varieties of catfish and panfish. It also offers an opportunity to snag paddlefish.
When “game fever” is in the air, hunters will find such species as white-tailed deer, mourning dove, duck, geese, rabbit and squirrel. Nearly 21,800 acres of project land is licensed to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, of which 17,300 acres are managed for public hunting and 4,500 acres are used for a waterfowl refuge.
