Welcome to PaddlefishBands.com
Did you snag a paddlefish with a metal band on its jaw?
If you harvested the fish, you must report it through the ODWC E-Check system HERE.
If you released the fish, please report the band by clicking HERE.
We ask that you please do not remove bands from fish that you plan to release. Having fish in the population with "missing bands" causes difficulties with our population modeling calculations.
Looking for up-to-date status info on river flows, spring harvest, regulations, and where to find the big fish?
Visit the Fishing-Notebook Message board HERE.
See the 2017 Oklahoma Fishing Regulations HERE. (Paddlefish regulations are found on page 14.)
