Candy Reservoir

Do any of you know anything about this lake? It is between Bartlesville and Tulsa. I happened to see it on an OK road map. I looked for information on google a few months ago, didn't find much at all, there's no map of it, and saw somewhere that it was a failed project. I will try to find it on the wildlife department website, this could be an unknown hunting and fishing spot... :thumbsup:

I just looked at an aerial photo, there is candy lake and a smaller one to the east of it. Right before Candy creek runs into bird creek is where it is. It could be on private land, it might not, and if it is on public land, is hunting allowed. I don't know if it's a good waterfowl lake, but I think it is worth a try to go check it out. :thumbsup:

That lake to the east of candy looks good, there's some marshy area on the east-northeast side of it, it says it's on pecan hollow creek.

This has gotta be public, there's 2 roads that go right to the lake from the north and south. And to the north I see a small, possibly flooded area.

Wait a minute, this is farther from the highway than I thought...and the road that goes to the lake is a second road off a road that goes to a farmers land.

I was thinking that Candy Creek used to be a public hunting area but it was sold back to the public a few years ago. Dunno, maybe I'm thinking about something else.

I found out that it was sold a few years ago. But the wildlife department just got 604 acres somewhere around there, I guess we will find out sooner or later.

That's a strange coincidence that your post was exactly 24 hours after mine. :eek:
