Fishing is allowed in the Lake of the Arbuckles, Veterans Lake, portions of Rock Creek, and ponds within the park west of U.S. Highway 177. Travertine Creek and other bodies of water east of U.S. Highway 177 are closed to fishing. White bass, largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, and catfish are popular catches. A valid Oklahoma state fishing license is required. Wheelchair accessible fishing docks are available at Veterans Lake and adjacent to the Guy Sandy and The Point boat launches.
Responsible anglers help conserve our common natural resources for others to enjoy. Follow fishing regulation and limits. Be mindful to pack it out any waste items when you leave. Old fishing line, plastic containers, glass, and old hooks can be extremely harmful to wildlife.
