Heavy Rain Is Impacting Broken Bow Lake

Heavy rain is impacting Broken Bow Lake according the area’s premiere fishing guide, Bryce Archey of 

“All boat ramps are closed until further notice. Depending on rains and what the Corp of Engineers can generate, my best case scenario for a ramp to open is three weeks. The park is still open but most camping in and around the lake is closed. We really don’t know when everything will be back open. Weather controls everything,” Archey said.

The flooding comes at a horrible time for tourism in the Beavers Bend State Park area. Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner and this will certainly have a significant financial impact to businesses in Broken Bow during the upcoming heavy tourist season.

Upscale luxury cabins in Beavers Bend State Park remain booked for the holiday weekend but toursim numbers will definitely be down until Broken Bow Lake is reopened.

Even though torrential rains have put a damper on activities in Beavers Bend State Park there are still many places to enjoy in Broken Bow. Download our app for all the local recommendations.

Broken Bow Lake Fishing Guide

Broken Bow Lake Fishing Guides

Searching for a Broken Bow Lake fishing guide? They are highly sought after near Beavers Bend State Park. I recently had the great experience of spending several hours on the lake with Bryce Archey of I now understand why he has been lauded as the best in Southeastern Oklahoma for many years.

Bryce, a graduate of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, is a charismatic bass fishing expert. As we hit the lake in his decked out boat, the learning, laughter and good times began immediately. We scorched across Broken Bow Lake and hit the first fishing spot around 7:00 a.m. Bryce knew exactly where the bass would be schooling and the lures and presentation to use in order to get them to visit the friendly confines of his livewell tank.

My buddy along for the trip landed a nice bass on his first cast! Bryce knows Broken Bow Lake like the back of his hand and provided excellent education regarding how wind, weather and lake levels impact having a successful venture on the water.

“I get tremendous satisfaction from teaching people how to catch fish on Broken Bow Lake,” Bryce said. He has fished Southeastern Oklahoma his entire life and considers Broken Bow Lake to be the top lake for anglers in our area.

Bryce paid his dues along the way in his quest to become the premier fishing guide in the Beavers Bend State Park area. “I used to fish nearly all night, park the boat in a cove and catch a few hours sleep, then hit the lake again at daybreak,” he recalled.

When you visit Beavers Bend State Park and the Broken Bow Lake area, hire an expert if you truly want to catch fish, have lots of laughs, and learn about bass fishing. I grew up on Broken Bow Lake but have not had the opportunity to bass fish in several years. One outing with him and I was hooked…So were several nice fish! We had such a tremendous experience that we booked him for second outing.
