    Thars some hawgs in them thar waters. Seriously tho, the tailwater is some of the best fishin for big flatheads. There & also the crick that leads to the lower falls.

    That's the plan, then I'll probably be gone for a while. Way way way too much personal stuff going on.

    Doe creek is a hot spot at catract, it located once you go under the 42 bridge and make the left turn and head straight back till hit the creek. Also the old beach area is another good spot it is behind the state docks in the park there is a cove there. On the park side of the narrows there is a big sand flat on the west side of the lake just north of the narrows that is good. On the north end of the island is a good spot where the creek channel runs up against the bluff.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info. I was just reading about the harvest of fish there a few years back. Close to 100 recorded flatties were taken out in a few months, biggest being the 71lber (What a shame). Couple thousand channels taken as well. It sounds as if the catfishing is good there, hopefully we can get into a few.

    I was about to say who wouldn't, but I've been fishing with this guy lately and he keeps saying stuff like, "Im not trying to catch one of those big guys, don't know why you guys want to so bad." I can't help but give him the :eek:oooh: face.
