Weekend anglers and bass tournament trails consider Lake Hudson, AKA Markham Ferry Reservoir, a premiere bass fishing lake. Good catch rates and quality largemouth bass rank the lake among the top in the state. With over 200 miles of shoreline wrapped around this 12,000-acre lake, anglers can find plenty of water to fish from the bank or a boat. Markham Ferry Reservoir is located only a half hour from the Broken Arrow-Tulsa area, in the northeast part of the state. Boat docks and brushy shorelines are favorite hangouts of bass when they are shallow. In summer and during winter they move deeper around river channels, ledges and submerged islands and points. Crappie, catfish, sunfish, hybrid stripers, saugeye and paddlefish also reside here. Hudson Lake Marina and RV Park and several area campgrounds are available for all types of camping. Other lodging options are also available in the area. There are no rental boats here so bring your own pontoon, pleasure boat or fishing boat and use one of the eight boat launch ramps. Kayaks and canoes can be portaged from some of the same areas open to the public for fishing from the bank.
