One idea is to have the kids fish with grass hoppers they catch around the lake. The kids get to run around a little chasing grasshoppers and the trout love them. win win
Thanks for the Beavers Bend idea, the wife's sisters were wanting to do a family weekend (5 couples plus kids). The place they wanted was booked the weekends everybody was available (lake Murray).
Glad you caught a few
That is a beautiful remote area... with tons of cabins. Trout below the dam, pretty good bass fishery above. Can also float the lower mountain fork on down from the trout area .. Cabins range from cheap, and a place to stay to some fancy houses and bed and breakfast. Other than Memorial day, 4th of July, and Labor day, the lake is fairly uncrowded. I think below the dam gets a bit more use. If you happen to hit Owa Chito festival (in June), free concert at the amphitheater. Not sure who is coming this year, but i've seen Mark Chestnut, Restless Heart, and Darryl Worley. It's a good time. Abendigo's makes a decent steak, and Girls Gone Wine makes some pretty tasty Okie wine, and they also sell a ton of trinketry.
