    fishndad30 there is a lot of great fishing around there . Soap creek is on the south side and you can fish the mouth from the bank. If you have a boat start there and head down towards Selma ,lots of holes and a Island that holds a lot of fish. Pass Selma towards Douds is a pipeline with a lot of fish holding rip rap. You have a great area to fish and lots of fish to catch.
    Hope this Helps.
