Spring River, Twin Bridges SP, Oklahoma, July 29th, 2010: Fishing a tad slow, great potential!
Fishing barge- has indoor fishing spots!
Paddled all around these islands...very scenic!
I arrived at Twin Bridges SP, Oklahoma around 3:30 in the afternoon and got the kayak launched- extreme heat both air and water. Paddled all around the islands in the middle of the channel. There is a really good put-in point for kayaks and canoes if you go up the hill in the state park...great vista to see the entire river as well. This is the point where the Neosho River and the Spring River merge to form the Grand River and Grand Lake in Oklahoma. I got a chance to chat with the fishing barge operator...this is an incredible catfish fishery. On the way out, he was cleaning a very large flathead catfish caught on a jug line. I am going to come back later and target some of these catfish!
