I really can't believe I haven't started a thread before on the Caney River. The darn things flows right though town and is only a few minutes from my house. The main thing that does stop most people from fishing the Caney is access to the river. This is one of those steep banked rivers, with very little public access. There's not a single boat ramp anywhere the Caney river is located but there's a couple of places you can drag a small jon or canoe and put in and enjoy the river. The main access that most people use is the low water dam located by Johnstone Park. The river above the low water dam is fairly deep in many places and can be navagated for quite a distance. The Caney River is actually two seperate rivers that join just North of Bartlesville. The Caney River starts fifty miles or so up in Kansas and feeds Hulah Lake. The Little Caney River is a seperate river that feeds Copan Lake and the two rivers merge just North of Dewey, OK. The Caney now runs though Bartlesville and all the way though Washington County and dumps in the Verdigris just below Oolagah. Now in the spring time when there letting water out of both Hulah and Copan all the fish that live between the low water dam in town migrate to both dams. The amount of flatheads between 20 and 70 pounds that have been caught in the springtime over the years is amazing. Since access to the river is pretty limited the quanity of flatheads and blues also stays pretty abundant thoughout the year. The main problem with the Caney is either there's not much current flowing making the turtles and gar easy pickins for your bait or the river is flowing too hard to take a small boat out there safely. Anyways in order to conserve fuel I'm will be dragging the Canoe to the Caney and fishing for some big flatheads. Hopefully I'll have some pics of some nice fish to share in the next few months. Here are a few pics on the river today.
