The weather is just about perfect this fall to enjoy a fishing getaway with a few friends. Head to the Beavers Bend area of Oklahoma and you’ll have a field day of choices in where to fish—and they are all good.

Two men fishing from a boat at dawn.Hailed as the best whitewater stream in Oklahoma, Mountain Fork River is the year-round spot to go for brown and rainbow trout. The water’s constant flow and cool temps make it a haven for the fish. Below the dam, on the Lower Mountain Fork River, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation stocks the water with trout on a regular basis, offering another excellent fishing site.

If you enjoy lake fishing, it’s hard to beat Broken Bow Lake. It’s a picturesque lake, surrounded by tall pines and rocky cliffs with 189 miles of shoreline. The deep and clear waters are home to a wide range of species, including crappie, channel catfish, walleye, largemouth bass, and others. If you bring a boat, there are several ramps for launching.

The Beavers Bend area has several good guiding services. Should you wish one, the Oklahoma Fishing Guides website is a good resource.

After a day of fishing, head home to a little paradise—the Paradise Pond cabin, to be exact. This luxury six-bedroom cabin sits on two acres, is more than 3,200 square feet, and can comfortably sleep up to 18. It also has it’s own private lake. Perfect for a guys’ fishing weekend!

Located in the Pine Hill neighborhood, Paradise Pond really has it all: a stocked game room, covered patios, decks and balconies, and a top-notch kitchen with plenty of seating. Better than a man cave, there is an upstairs theater room with a 70-inch screen, a great room with a 65-inch TV, and 50-inch mounted TV’s in each bedroom.

Talk about a great catch! Check out Paradise Pond, one of the many luxurious Beavers Bend Creative Escape cabins.
