I don't know anything about Isola Bella, but if they're anything like 99.9% of the other ponds in Oklahoma, they contain sunfish, largemouth bass, and possibly catfish.

It's a little early for topwaters as far as largemouth go. Mid-to-late April is when that bite turns on.

Could there be smallmouth in the creek that is running off from the dam of this pond?

I suppose it's possible, but I'd say it's highly unlikely.

So...I spotted bass, largemouth, yesterday swimming in the feeder creek to the pond. 3 of them, HUGE ones. But they wouldn't bite. I posted the story in the warm water fisheries, "Reluctant bass -OKC". If you would like to comment you can comment there or here. I'm reading both.

I threw popper, wolly bugger, and crayfish, no interest at all...

WHAT DO I DO?!

If the water is dirty, try a dark color fly. If it is clear, Chartreuse, white color. I have been using dark brown and olive bead head leech. For streamer, use the Chartreuse/white with a little red color.

You may hold off on top water until it warms up where you will see the flies. I already spotted a mayfly in my area (Wichita, Kansas) so it should be another two weeks before they go full. If you still want to try messing with top-water fly, plan out on light color mid-day and change to dark color in the even.

Another good fly, midges. Prefer the black zebra midge or red zebra midge.
