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.
