Canton 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.
