For those of you that fish or fly fish in Beaver's Bend Park on the Lower Mountain Fork river in OKlahoma, please take a moment to click on the link below and complete a short questionnaire. I am posting this only in the fly fishing section for now. Our goal, along with the LMF river foundation, is to update and change a few regulations.
1) We are attempting to make the 'Red Zone' restrictions easier to understand. The state is eliminating the last vestige of Lost Creek (Now a swamp). We are trying to get the red zone from the washed out bridge (formerly cold hole bridge) to Evening hole bridge. Easy to see, easy to regulate, easier to enforce.
2) Some want to lower the creel and bag limits. I am in that group. If you feel the same, or even like the current status, there is a place to voice your opinions. PLease feel free to tell the state of Oklahoma what you would like to see.
3) There are other areas to voice your opinions on other topics as well. Flow changes? More Brown Trout?
The state of Oklahoma really does want our opinions. The ODWC, LMFRF, and several others are in discussions on how to proceed with the trout fishery. The flood of Spring 2015 has given us a crack to attempt to get some changes put through.
