Know Before You Go
Be prepared to drain and clean your boat before you leave.
You need an Oklahoma Fishing License to fish on the OK side of the lake. TX residents can apply for a one day license. The boundary runs pretty much down the middle of the lake, but check a map. A Tx fishing license is required to fish on the Texas side of the lake, or you can fish without one from the shore or pier at Eisenhower State Park.
