The “Evening Hole” has been refurbished with grants and funding from the Lower Mountain Fork River Foundation and Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. This is an exciting project designed as an excellent year round trout habitat. Winter is an excellent time for fly fishing in Oklahoma. Please review the Oklahoma fishing regulations for this section of the Lower Mountain Fork River. Anglers are asked to use only artificial lures with barbless hooks and may harvest only one rainbow trout and one brown trout 20-inches or longer per day.
