    Guys,
    I've been fishing the tar out of harvey county and do real well on channels and the other night i saw some guys flinging some big perch.......does anyone know if there are flatheads in there for sure? Great little lake if no one has been there.
    thanks,
    travis

    WELL I'VE FISHED THE EAST LAKE FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, I HAVE NEVER SEEN A FLATHEAD. GOT 3 NICE CHANNELS UP THER LAST SATURDAY. THE WEST LAKE MAY HAVE FLATS, BUT THE LITTLE ARKANSAS GOES THRU THE PARK, AND THERE ARE FLATS IN THE LITTLE RIVER, SO THATS THE FLATS THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT RWG :big_smile:

    thanks for the help guys, i've been getting mixed answers on the flatheads up there at east. one bait shop says yes, the other says no but, they both sell big bait..........who knows. sure is some nice channels in there though.

    Where exactly were you catching all the channel cat? I camped there this past weekend and only caught a couple of channel about 15" long. I was using shad gizzard.

    I too have fished Harvey County East (and West) for many years and am unaware of any Flatheads in East Lake. There are some folks who like to use perch out there to catch the larger Channel Cats.
    Harvey County West has Flathead both in the river and in the lake itself. The lake and river become one when the Little Ark floods high enough.
