  • The North Canadian River is a tributary of the Canadian River, approximately 441 miles long, that flows through New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma in the United States. The North Canadian River rises just east of Des Moines, New Mexico in Union County, New Mexico; it is known as Corrumpa Creek. From here and throughout the Oklahoma Panhandle, it normally does not have much standing water. From there it flows eastwardly through the Oklahoma Panhandle, where it is known as the Beaver River. The Beaver River is dammed near Hardesty at Optima Dam. Originally approved in the 1930s, it was envisioned to provide drinking water to area communities, but construction did not occur until the 1960s. The Coldwater Creek empties into the Beaver River at Optima Dam. It flows southeastward into the Texas Panhandle into Sherman County, Texas for six miles, turning northeast and back into the Oklahoma Panhandle before continuing on to the east. It enters Northwest Oklahoma and turns southeast and takes the name North Canadian River where it is joined by Wolf Creek just south of the town of Fort Supply, Oklahoma. It is dammed at Canton, Oklahoma in Blaine County where it forms Canton Lake.
