I noticed a lot of hybrids have been stocked in Oologah over at least the past decade.  However, I've noticed that the hybrid striper guides don't seem to go there.  In your opinion, how are the hybrids doing on Oologah?  Same question for Lake Hudson.

Both lakes have gotten hybrid stockings on a pretty consistent basis over the past decade.  There are decent populations in the lakes, but some of those hybrids also move out of the lake during high water dam releases or normal dam release operations.  These lakes with high flow-through rates (water being released often) will probably never have the year-to-year stong populations as more stable lakes like Skiatook, Fort Cobb, or Waurika.  They are both pretty large lakes too, which means it takes a lot of hybrid stockings to see a strong population over time...and many those hybrids that might otherwise go to Oologah or Hudson are better spent (more likely to benefit anglers) in more stable lakes.

Thanks Kurt!  That makes a lot of sense that the more stable lakes would maintain their populations, such as Birch and Carl Blackwell also.  Keep stocking those stable lakes!
