STRIPERS - Stripers are not in the lake but are abundant below Eufaula Dam! The dam is located on the South Canadian River which empties into the Arkansas River and is close to the town of Webber Falls. The state record was caught below Eufaula Dam and was not broken until just a few years ago. Some folks plan their vacation just to fish below Eufaula Dam. Stripers and sandbass love the swift moving water below the dam. Also caught in the river are the much sought after Saugeye, a Walleye/Sauger hybrid. These Saugeye are also caught frequently when trolling for sandbass it the lake itself.
