Made the trek to Oklahoma's Blue River for the season opener today. Caught 25-30 total in six hours of fishing, kept my six-fish limit of decent sized rainbows. Caught my stringer on spinning tackle, using Panther Martin spinner and a Mepps spinner. After cleaning and icing fish, went back with fly rod and caught/released several trout on a scud under a float and on a nymph fished without a float. Most other anglers also had fish and most were using spinning tackle. Well worth the drive from FloMo. Forgot my phone so no pics. Really liking this whole retirement scene - the fishing opportunities have increased exponentially!

Is the area where you fished divided into zones with different restrictions like LMF/Beavers Bend or is it just typical statewide laws that apply?

There is an area north of where I fished that is catch and release only until March 15 and I think also limits types of lures. You can get the specifics on the Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife website.

Overall the state has about 7 miles of river that make up the Blue River Hunting & Fishing Area. On most of the river, the only restrictions are a six fish limit, and you can have no more than 12 fish in your possession. The catch & release (or delayed harvest) section is about 1.5 miles north of Highway 7 and you have to walk in or you can ride a bike. In the catch and release area only flies or artificial lures with barbless hooks may be used.

Fished the C&R area Friday, Saturday, and Monday. Fished the Blue in the past but never the C&R till this year. Here is Monday's video... Saw lots of trout but only landed one.

Blue River - OK

Hopefully this helps. Lot of area to fish but you can also have a lot of company if you go during peak times.
