About the Area:

The Kiamichi River is located in southeastern Oklahoma and flows west and south from its source in LeFlore County, OK down to the Red River, just south of Hugo, OK. The entire basin area is located within Oklahoma and covers roughly 1,821 sq. miles (3010 sq. km) and encompasses two major lakes: Sardis Lake and Hugo Lake. 

This river is home to a variety of mussels and a wide diversity of fish species. In addition, the watershed itself is home to three federally designated endangered species: the Indiana bat, the red-cockaded woodpecker, and the leopard darter.
