Near Tishomingo (which is about 30 miles east of Ardmore and I-35) there is a stretch of the Blue River populated with a series of some 50 granite ledges; 6 of them create waterfalls that are 6 feet or better and another 2 are reportedly 8 and 12 feet. The Blue River, though nearly flat for 40 miles, collects water from over 200 square miles of watershed. Then, on its way to join the Red River, it drops off a granite plateau in a series of cascades and falls for a 14 mile stretch.

Most of this stretch of the Blue River is in the state-designated Blue River Public Hunting and Fishing Area.

Please note that the properties along the Blue River, above and below the Blue River Public Hunting and Fishing Area, are privately owned and posted. Penalties for trespassing, for any reason, can be severe in Oklahoma.

Fish & Licenses

This river is mainly for fishing year round. It is also designated for Trout Fishing from November 1 to March 31.

Participate in the Blue River Trout Derby each November & February. Over $1000 in trophies & door prizes.
