    i posted earlier bout not being able to catch flats. my other question is, is a creek a good spot to get some bigguns, like ones well over the 30 pound range, im looking to catch a few to take some pics and letem go, ive been told the creek yielded a 55 pound flat, but that was 30 or more years ago, is this still a good spot

    Id say if the water is up and the flats can swim back up the creek off the river you would have a chance. Feeder creeks are allways a good spot, especially the mouth of it.

    what creeks are you fishing? I know the cottonwood creek in my hometown holds big ones.

    Id say if the creek has all the habitat shelter and food that flats like, then there should be some in there. It would need to have a descent amount of water, bait fish and shelter, like under cut banks, stumps, log jams brush piles and such. also when the water comes up it should be a good spot, but often the mouth of the creek is the best bet.

    I would think that the creek would need to be a healthy mature creek with the protection & eatin critters for cats. Other than that the mouth of a decent creek would be fair.

    Its tough for me to say, but my .02 is that I fish Deer Creek near my house and you're lucky to get something out of it that is over a few pounds. I'm sure that somewhere a flatty lurks, but it seems that because our creek is typically so shallow, that's just the nature of the beast.
