Beavers Bend State Park, Oklahoma

Sue and I spent Thursday through Saturday at Bevers Bend State Park near Broken Bow Oklahoma. The weather was damp and grey but we enjoy a relaxing retreat there. This is Broken Bow Lake formed by a dam on the Mountain Fork River.

Below the dam is a trout fishery. A special license is required and there are restrictions on the kind of fishing equipment allowed and the number and size of fish permitted. I have never fished for trout but I understand that it is something of an art.

Far below a solitary fisherman tries his luck in the cold clear water of the Mountain Fork.

Great pictures. I have fished for trout out west and have been meaning to do so in OK at the few places where they are but haven't yet.

I like the fisherman shot - you really get an idea of the scale of the place. por
