Sooner Lake is considered one of Oklahoma's premier bass lakes. In fact, the first Oklahoma stocking of hybrids occurred in 1977 at Sooner Lake.
Its primary use is a cooling reservoir for the coal fired electric generating plant, but its recreation opportunities make it fun place for the family to spend the day. Facilities include boat ramps, picnic tables, restrooms and a swimming beach. Sooner Lake has a well-established striper fishery and a newly developed Saugeye fishery.
At 5,000 acres, it's is smaller than most hybrid lakes but has produced several state records in the past. The northeast corner of the lake can be very productive when the generators are pumping water. The lake has numerous points and islands that also can produce good fishing.
Bank-fishermen fish the warmwater discharge area located at the northwest end of the lake.It is a mile and a quater walk from an area where you can park off of highway 177. There is a path leading to the discharge area.
