AKA: Grand Lake of the Cherokees
Fishing for largemouth bass, spotted bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, blue catfish, black crappie, white crappie, walleye, bluegill, green sunfish, redear sunfish, white bass, hybrid striped bass and paddlefish at Grand Lake of the Cherokees in Oklahoma.
To local anglers the term "grand" is as much descriptive of the fishing as it is the name of Grand Lake, AKA Grand Lake of the Cherokees. Giant schools of big crappie, monster catfish and exception bass fishing are the draw to weekend anglers and tournament fishermen alike. And, there is plenty of water to fish in this 46,000-acre lake located in the northeast corner of the state, at Grove, OK. Whether you enjoy fishing from the bank or prefer to fish from a boat, there are 460 miles of shoreline to explore. Bluegill, white bass, hybrid stripers, paddlefish and bream are also abundant with excellent catches reported often. Boat rentals are available around the lake at boat rental shops and marinas. Restaurants, stores, bait, tackle, camping and lodging are all available at or nearby the lake. At many of the public use areas there is access for bank fishing and launching of small boats, kayaks and canoes. Nearly two dozen boat launch ramps provide easy access for water ski boats, pleasure boats, pontoons and fishing boats. Brush and laydowns provide cover for bass and crappie in some upper regions of the lake, however boat docks are favorite targets for many anglers anytime the fish are shallow. In winter and the warmest months of summer may drive the bulk of the bait and fish to deeper, cooler water where they suspend or hold on structure such as ledges, islands, humps and creek channels.
