I realize this is the Texas fishing forum but I know we also stray far from home to fish at times. Anyone have any good tips on Tenkiller Lake? Has anyone been lately? Last Oklahoma lake I fished was Murray and I ended up with more accidental walleye than I did bass. Which wasn't a bad thing, just not what I was targeting.

I'd focus on main lake points. Topwater early and then cranks or drag a big worm/jig during the day. Night time has been good too. Flipping the bushes with a big worm or hit some lit up docks. Fishing will only get better now. It's my favorite lake to fish in the fall

Lake is loaded with good smallmouth. Mid Lake to the Dam is best for the smallies. Pea gravel flats and points with a topwater early, trap and square bill bite should be turning on soon too. Tons of Brushpiles and rock piles on the lake that are good in the fall. Football jig, shakey head, or carolina rig speed craw work really well. wind blown main lake points are good also. Tend to catch them good in the fall cranking a DT16 in any craw pattern, mardi gras has always worked best for me though. Natural color foot ball jigs. Strayhorn area by the dam has some good spots to fish. Chicken Creek, Burnt Cabin and snake creek are also really good. 15-30 fow is typically good in the fall. Good luck! One of my favorite lakes!

A floating jerkbait worked fast does good on that lake in the fall, chrome/blue back/orange belly. We used to use the big Smithwick rogue. This was 15 years ago but I guarantee it still works. Also deep running red rapala crawdad CB's.

Well took me two days but finally got them figured out, sort of. Shallow creeks were good because temps had dropped and the bait fish were spawning up the creeks. Petit Bay was absolutely covered with baitfish, I could almost walk the creek on them!
The fish were starting to school and I caught a few slot LMB ahead of the front on Wednesday and a few more on Thursday. Had just got them figured out Tuesday and caught a rock bass and had several other hits when I had to go in and have family time.
They hit ok on a pumpkin seed worm and a lot better on a watermelon speed craw on a shaky head jig. I did also catch a few VERY large bluegill and some under SMB and a decent little Rock bass.
Shoulda went with my gut and hit the creeks first, but tried the last fishing report on the main lake points and that never panned out.
DEFINITELY going to go back, love that deep, clear water, very beautiful park and lake. New favorite camping spot for sure.
