The lake gets a lot of traffic from pleasure boaters and the access fills up quick. The access isnt great but you shouldnt have problems launching. I dont walleye fish much in the summer but this winter I figured Id try it out. From what I found is that their are lots of little eyes 10-12" and a few bigger 20"+ (which I dont keep) but not much in between. As far as other species... Bass, not much better than many of lakes in the area. Pike, a few nice ones but you probably wont catch much. Muskies, dont even get me started! I tried fishing them on more than one occasion with no success. Panfish are small, its famous for it stunted crappies...

Join the club! All I hear is Owasso produces big muskies, and all I get is lured into a big zero. As soon as I see a pic of an Owasso Muskie, maybe I'll be back...Actually, I'll probably hit Owasso this weekend because I'm so gullible. tongue.gif

Turnup's info is right on in my book. We have seen a few northern in Owasso - one day had two big ones follow a lure in & decide that the boat made a nice cool shadow for them to lurk in. Both stuck around for a few minutes so we had a great look at them. Both appeared to be 30 inches plus which is a big northern in the metro in my book. Good fun even if we didn't hook the toothy things. grin.gif

I have wanted to summer walleye fish owasso, but I normally just bass fish it. In the winter we killed little waleye (8-12) inchers and then later in the winter we found a crappie honey-hole, but most were smaller (6-8) inchers. Biggest winter crappie there was 11 inches and my biggest winter walleye was 18 inches.

My friend lives on this lake and his neighbor walleye fishes a lot. He said to fish in 10-15 FOW by the ski jump. He said around the ski jump there is a rock pile that he kills them on.

I tihnk I am gonna try this weekend...I wil post my results.

Good Luck guys

Was out last night and was very supprised at the size of the bass in this lake. I had about 6 fish 14-15", two 17", and one 21.5" !! The big one must have been pushing 6.5 lbs, very nice fish I realy never new they were in there.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      decided to take the plunge and bought a Rapala Ion rechargeable. anybody have one and what do you use for a case?
