My friend and I floated the Baron Fork Creek on my canoe for the first time this week.  We somewhatbit off a little more than we could chew as our trip was almost 15 hours long.  We put in at the county road just south of Christie at dawn and took out at Horseshoe bend when it was pitch dark.  The good news is we caught tons of fish.  This place is beautiful!  I actually never changed lures all day.  On my bait caster I had a Zara puppy and on my spinning rod I had a drop shot rig.  Literally every other cast was a fish and some of them were very decent sized.   Even in the middle of the day the fish were nailing the topwater.  We didn't see a single person almost the whole trip except for when we went under the Welling Bridge.  The wildlife and amount of various species of fish were quite incredible as well.  We even saw two bald eagles.  I would highly recommend this creek to anyone looking for a little different Oklahoma fishing experience.

That's a long float you fellas did. I used to go around seven miles for a fishing day float. Beach the canoe and work the deep holes and log piles over, enjoy lunch and a cold beer or two....you guys did the marathon.

Nice fish.

Chris, man that's a LONG day for sure.  It appears it was well worth the effort.  Thank you for sharing your results with us.

I think I flunked out of college twice on that creek. Used to buy a .99 blow up raft or get an old inner tube and float from Welling to the old Boy Scout camp. Good times.
