  1. Thanks for sharing. News could be much worse. Please post any future ways that come up to support long term solutions for the LIR. Thanks!
  2. Great news! Thanks for the post and the information. It has been a long time since I have fished LIR but you have me excited...
  3. Probably will have more luck working the upper Illinois river than in tenkiller. The upper Illinois has multiple access points via hwy 10. You can also start closer to the lake at Carter's Landing, Horseshoe bend, Barron Fork, and Town Branch. (I have never been able to hook a carp on the fly but have snagged quite a few with treble hook and bass rod years ago in these areas.) You could take a scouting trip in the next month and see if the sand bass are running up the river. Would be a good way to see the river and catch a TON of fish that fight extremely hard. Light/white streamers seem t
  4. I have never been to the LIR except when the water flow is low. After they kill the generators how much different do the fish feed? I can picture myself having a hard time keeping a dry in a drag-less drift... Thanks!
  5. Fished last weekend for a short while. Two of us landed fish on wooly buggers and gold bead head hares ear. Saw MANY fish being taken by others. We were fishing the gravel lot below the dam, far side of the island. There was a spin caster near us who must have caught a fish on every cast for about thirty minutes...not sure what he was using. Water was low but th fish were biting. Good luck!

  7. Below is correspondence from Jim Burroughs of the ODWC: Looks like contacting Jim Inhofe is the best way to get spurt from the state for a constant source of water flow to the LIR... See below. No new developments for a permanent water source. We have made some progress in managing what temporary water rights we have however. SWPA has agreed to fund a bypass piping system from the surge tank located behind the powerhouse running to the tailwater area. This will be a somewhat automated system that will come on when there is no generation and go off when there is generation. It w
  8. Anyone on here been fishing lately? Would like to spend some time there this weekend if all is well. Thanks!
  9. If you have the specifics on the names of who to write letters to and addresses I will do so ASAP and pass it along to others. Great news and thanks for sharing!
