Canton Lake Fishing
Canton Lake FishingCanton Lake is Oklahomas's leading fisherman's paradise. It provides several species of fish, including crappie, white bass, hybrid bass, channel catfish and largemouth bass. Canton is widely known for an abundance of walleye and has become the primary source of walleye eggs used by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife to stock other Oklahoma lakes.

Canton Lake is host to Oklahoma's oldest and largest fishing tournament. The Annual Walleye Rodeo is held in May, the weekend following Mother's Day. Each year an estimated 93,000 visitors from several states attend the Canton area. During this four-day event, cash and prizes were given in excess of $30,000, with walleye being the high-dollar fish.

Canton Lake Fishing Reportsmore

Canton Lake Fishing Report
This is just to remind you that fishing reports are given with the best intentions to help you catch fish. And do remember fishing reports given a few hours ago can change due to a whole list of circumstances. But ---- they are still one of the best ways to determine if fish are biting or not. You might consider calling someone local to find out if the report is still current. Otherwise go and have a good time in participating in the challenge of catching some fish while you have fun fishing!

And if your at your destination for a day or more check out the LASR menu above for local events, attractions and businesses that are there to help make your trip more enjoyable. And thanks to those who do their best to give us great fishing information!
