Why not open the lake up to kayaks and bank fishing?


From Bruce on 07/14/14

we are dealing with western Oklahoma here, if we're waiting for the lake to refill then it might never reopen. This is what happens when lawyers are involved I guess.

I was very upset to drive an hour and a half to find the lake closed. I could see closing the ramps if the water was to low to unload boats. But some people do like to fish from the bank. Canton lake is very low and they are not closed . My family and I were not happy campers to say the least. It would have been nice if this had been posted somewhere other than Web sites. Our tax dollars pay for these lakes and we are not allowed access to them.

Dan, we called 580-474-2668 and were told that the lake is still closed. The rains may have helped, but the lake is undergoing some work. Please give that number a call if you have any questions. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Monster catfish. I fish in 40ft on south side


From owner on 03/26/13

The lake will not be opened until there is enough water for the boat ramp to be usable. Pray for rain!


From Jared on 03/26/13

Just curious to know when the lake was going to be re-opened
