Lake El Reno was created in 1966 in Canadian County, Oklahoma, near the city of El Reno, by constructing an earthen dam across Fourmile Creek, (Canadian County, Oklahoma), a tributary of the North Canadian River. The lake has a normal capacity of 709 acre feet (875,000 m3), covers a surface area of 170 acres (690,000 m2) and is surrounded by 4 miles (6.4 km) of shoreline. Its maximum depth is 19 feet (5.8 m). The lake is operated by the city of El Reno.

No city fishing permit is needed, but a state permit is required (as is true for fishing anywhere in the state).
