Eufaula Dam is a dam across the Canadian River in Oklahoma. Completed in 1964, it impounds Eufaula Lake, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes, covering 102,500 acres (41,500 hectares). The dam serves to provide flood control, water supply, navigation and hydroelectric power generation. It supports a 90 MW power station. The dam was approved by the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1946 and construction began in 1956. In February 1964, the river was closed and in July that year, the first generator was operational. By September, the other three generators were operational. State Highway 71 runs across the top of the dam. Heavy rains in the Spring of 2015, caused Eufaula Lake to rise so rapidly that the Corps of Engineers had to open the flood gates and release water at rates as high as 48,000 cubic feet (1,400 m3) per second. This was the highest rate since 1990.Wikipedia

Love to fish here. Plenty of catfish, blues mostly. Always get a stringer full
Clean and easy to get around. Lots of space to get a line in.
Great place to ride your ATV! The one hole, very primitive bathroom does not lock so have a guard outside. There are two more on the north side across the river but I didn't check to see if they locked or not.
Beautiful very clean, good fishing!
Easy to fish, but image a lot of people their would be tiff to fish.
